    Design communication & product visualization

  • VRED compatibility New

    ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO, ALIAS SURFACE

    VRED 3D visualization software users can view Alias geometry with realistic materials and environments.

  • Interactive product visualization

    ALIAS DESIGN, ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO, ALIAS SURFACE

    Evaluate design options with real-time, interactive product visualization. Tell the story of your product design in context using geometric environments.

    • Use shading models to increase realism, evaluate surfaces, and design forms.
    • Render shading based on an omnidirectional light source for shadows and soft shading.
    • Apply material color, texture, glow, incandescence, bump, and displacement.
    • Quickly verify surface conditions with curvature maps, zebra stripes, and draft angles.
  • Compelling photorealistic renderings

    ALIAS DESIGN, ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO, ALIAS SURFACE

    Image-based lighting supports high dynamic range imaging (HDRI) for interactive product visualization and rendering. The result is high-resolution imagery for evaluating, presenting, and marketing your product designs.

    • Save high-resolution images of any modeling window created without a full software render.
    • Display wireframes, canvas planes, or fully shaded models and create turntables or 360-degree interactive QuickTime VR files.
    • Incorporate ambient occlusion calculations for soft shadows with raycast and raytrace renderers.
  • Annotation tools

    ALIAS DESIGN, ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO

    Built-in bookmarks, pencils, and markers help you review designs. Use your entire screen to work with just the necessary interface aspects.

  • Convenient data exchange

    ALIAS DESIGN, ALIAS AUTOSTUDIO, ALIAS SURFACE

    Share your design data with mechanical design and engineering software, using the DWG™ format. Verify geometry created in Alias 3D product design software to predict and diagnose problems before designs go to engineering.
