Render Studio for TopSolid 7

If you are using TopSolid’Image and want to easily and quickly create nice renders without having to setup a “scene” everytime, you can download this “Render Studio” by SAG.

Assign material or coatings to walls and floors if you like.

As seen in the video below you can adjust the size of floors and walls by dragging circles and points. You can also change the position of the camera and lights by dragging their positioning points.

There is also a centered Frame for easy positioning of you part/assembly which you can the rotate around the Z axis to your desired position. It doesn´t get any easier than this now does it?  😉

You can download the rendering studio for free here.

I like rendering. In fact i like it alot and so i´m very happy to announce that TopSolid’Image now has a home of it´s own on the international TopSolid Forum.
TopSolid’Image has been around the French forum for some time now so it´s about time the non French speaking community has a place to share knowledge, tips&tricks and discus graphics and rendering techniques in TopSolid.
