What's New

A quick look at new features in Eyeshot 11

Proprietary file format

Eyeshot finally gets its own versioned and extensible binary file format that includes geometry, geometry+tessellation, tessellation only read and write options to leverage file size versus loading speed. Backward compatibility will be guaranteed for reading operations only. File compression is supported as well.

Collision detection

You asked. We delivered. Eyeshot v11 features advanced collision detection using OBB, Octree and accurate intersection. See RobotArm source code sample.

IFC file import

Eyeshot v11 can now import IFC (and IFCZIP) files with all the relevant properties, containers and hierarchy structures.

Asynchronous regeneration

Regeneration engine now works on a separate thread to avoid blocking the application user interface.

Clipped objects capping

During clipping plane edit, you can now fill clipped objects.


Of course, there are more features and improvements.
