Features for VRED, VRED Design, and VRED Professional

Evaluate and visualize your 3D automotive models

Accurately visualize and evaluate digital 3D automotive models as part of your decision-making process. VRED™ software supports a range of virtual validation tools, especially for the automotive field.

    Evaluation workflows

  • Measurement, grid, and ruler tools

    VRED, VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL

    Accurately evaluate model size and proportions. VRED includes tools that help you measure in 3D space, plus a reference grid and ruler to provide context.

  • Clipping module

    VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL

    Use 3D clipping on digital data, polygons, and even on native NURBS data. The clipping module helps you evaluate 3D models by creating cross sections of geometries without manipulating the geometry itself.

  • Analytic rendering modes

    VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL

    Analyze 3D surface shape, quality, and continuity. Access multiple analytical rendering modes, including isophotes and zebra stripes.

  • Gap Analysis tool

    VRED PROFESSIONAL

    Evaluate the fit between adjacent surfaces with the Gap Analysis tool.

  • Annotations

    VRED PROFESSIONAL

    Attach annotations directly to a 3D model during an interactive review. You can edit a comment’s color and content at any time and during any stage of a review. This helps create a better communication workflow throughout the evaluation process.

  • Alias curvature shader

    VRED PROFESSIONAL

    Now use the same curvature shader evaluation mode that is available in Alias industrial design software. VRED now renders the curvature shader directly on the NURBS surfaces. This helps you more accurately evaluate surfaces without any tessellation artifacts.

  • Visual simulation

    VRED PROFESSIONAL

    Visual simulation features help you better understand lighting distribution. The Luminance tone mapper displays a legend that indicates the light distribution inside a scene. Light specialists can define color spectrums mathematically using Full Width Half Maximum. Look directly into illuminated light sources—for example, light pipes or headlights—using a rayfile as a calculation basis. All effects, such as specular reflections or refractions, are visible and you can see, for example, how presimulated rayfiles behave inside a light source. You can now also load Osram and Optis Spectrum files that define color on a wavelength basis.
