SHEFFIELD, UK (30 November 2011) - Lightworks, the world's leading supplier of rendering solutions for developers of advanced 3D computer graphics software, today announced its partnership with ZWSOFT, a leading supplier of 2D and 3D CAD/CAM solutions to the AEC and MCAD industries.
ZWSOFT has licensed the Lightworks Artisan product and will be releasing a new ZW3D product based on this new technology in the New Year. Upon its release, ZWSOFT will become the first company in China to sell an Artisan-based product.
David Forrester, Managing Director at Lightworks, commented, “I’m delighted that ZWSOFT are partnering with us to introduce our Lightworks Artisan product into their already successful ZW3D product. This is an exciting move for us into the Chinese mechanical CAD market place and we’re pleased to be helping ZWSOFT to provide additional technology to their global user base. “
Joh Li, CTO at ZWSOFT, said, “We’re really pleased to be working with Lightworks to introduce their Lightworks Artisan product within our own software. We believe this will be a great addition to our existing range of software and that Artisan will enable us to offer an advanced photorealistic rendering solution to our ZW3D users.”
Lightworks Artisan offers a completely new approach and tools for the creation of high quality images of virtual products or buildings, whilst they are still being designed. Artisan can be easily integrated directly within an existing CAD system and its simple workflow process enables a faster design to final image creation. The unique SnapShots functionality enables users to save SnapShots of scenes at any stage of the design process which can then be reapplied at any time within Artisan.
