3D modelling software maker 3D Systems Inc. has confirmed that it is working on a new 3D rendering software to take on the competition from the likes of Microsoft and NVIDIA.
The company said that its upcoming software will be released sometime in 2018.
The new software will not only offer advanced functionality, but will also be able to handle large-scale modelling with the same performance as traditional 3D software.
According to the company, the new 3d rendering software will feature an “advanced” version of its software called 3D Vision, and that it will be available in 2018 for the Mac, Windows and Linux.
In the short term, the company is planning to release the new software for free, which is also likely to attract some serious competition from other companies.
3D Systems, which has already launched a slew of 3D models for NASA, is expected to become a major player in the 3D printing market, which includes many of the 3DS and 3D printers currently used in many consumer electronics.
“3D Vision is the most advanced 3D modeler available today and it is designed to capture the detail and detail-quality of real-world objects,” the company said in a statement.
“3D models are an important tool in the creation of digital prototypes, which enables the creation and development of 3-D digital objects and services for 3D printer manufacturers.”
The company’s current software, called 3d Vision, is capable of producing large-format 3D images that can be scaled and exported.
3DVision is also used to generate 3D objects that can then be printed at home or in a 3D scanner.
Microsoft, which sells a range of 3DS software and hardware, and NVIDIA, which produces 3D graphics cards, are the biggest players in the industry.
Last month, Microsoft announced that it would launch a new version of Windows that would support 3D scanning, a feature that was initially exclusive to the Mac OS X operating system.
Other major 3D imaging companies including Shapeways and MakerBot are also expected to be on board.
With 3D technology, 3D scan equipment is now becoming increasingly useful as a way of creating 3D-based models of things like cars and buildings.
However, a major obstacle for 3DS users is the lack of hardware.
Currently, 3DS scanners require either a PC, a tablet or a smartphone to be used to create a 3-dimensional model.
Companies such as 3DWorks and MakerWorks are offering the 3-axis scanner as a free service, but there is currently no way to download the software and build a 3DS model.
The company is also looking to improve its software offerings in the near future.
Its new software, which will be able handle a large-volume of 3Ds, will allow users to create models with the ability to scale and modify.
It is also expected that 3D Modeler, a 3d modeler with a range a of 3 dimensions and more features, will be made available as a paid version of the software.
3d Modeler was created to create realistic, detailed 3D 3D object models.
Earlier this year, Microsoft released a version of 3ds Max, which was designed to be a replacement for 3ds.
3dsMax is currently available as an online download, but 3dsx, the 3ds X software that will be powering Microsoft’s new 3DS X software, will not be available for download until late next year.
