A picture is worth a thousand words. That’s why companies invest significant time and money into building a physical prototype that can be photographed for use in marketing materials or consumer testing.
Pro/ENGINEER Advanced Rendering Extension (ARX) allows you to produce photorealistic 3D product images for use in design reviews, marketing collateral, technical documentation, user manuals, and product packaging–without having to build a prototype. And, as your design concept changes and evolves, you can easily update your images without creating a new prototype, thus reducing costs significantly.
With Pro/ENGINEER ARX, you can render images faster, with amazing realism. Simply select a specific material and apply photo-quality properties like a smooth, glossy finish or a rough, matte finish. You can represent the product‘s intended environment more realistically with Pro/ENGINEER ARX than with any other application.
You now have the flexibility to create the perfect effect with the power to directly manipulate the lighting through 360° of rotation. You can also create a suitable environment for the product to be rendered in, for example, an outdoor scene or an office desktop. Additionally, you can apply special effects like textures, reflections, shadows and depth of field to enhance the final image. These advanced capabilities not only create images that impress consumers, but they also give you back time to optimize your design, and more budget to produce collateral that will generate both sales revenue and excitement around your product.
With photorealistic images of the product in its actual environment, design reviews are much faster, and generate more enthusiasm. 3D-rendered images can also be used for consumer testing, and for tailoring the product and product launch to ensure success–at a significantly lower cost. High-quality images can also be used in technical publications, such as product documentation, white papers and user manuals.
Pro/ENGINEER ARX will enable your product to break into the marketplace, not only with accurate promotional material, but with stunning visuals showcasing all aspects of the product.
