Altair launches all-in-one industrial design solutions Inspire Studio and Inspire Render for optimised 3D modelling

Altair Inspire Studio enables designers, architects and digital artists to create, evaluate and visualise design ideas faster than ever before.

Altair, a global technology company providing solutions in product development, high-performance computing and data analytics has launched its new 3D design and rendering solution Altair Inspire Studio.

Inspire Studio is a new solution for innovative designers, architects and digital artists to create, evaluate and visualise designs faster than ever before. With unrivaled flexibility and precision, its unique construction history feature along with multiple modeling techniques empowers users throughout the creative process. Building on the functions of Altair Evolve, Inspire Studio introduces a sleek, enhanced user experience. Each tool and workflow are now optimised for an efficient design experience from initial sketches to exploring styling with freeform, solid and PolyNURBS parametric modelling.

Also included in the launch is Inspire Render, a 3D rendering and animation software that enables users to quickly generate photorealistic renderings and animations of their products with physically-based lighting.

“We are very pleased with these two new solutions for the global industrial design community. Inspire Studio builds on our previous industrial design tool, Evolve, while going beyond Evolve’s capabilities. Inspire Studio will enhance designers’ creativity by letting them drive their designs. It offers an intuitive user interface and a powerful construction history, allowing them to quickly create and explore multiple iterations of their design. Relying on the same modern user experience with powerful interactive, full progressive and retracing rendering engine, Inspire Render will help designers quickly run photorealistic renderings and walkthrough animations on GPUs and CPUs,” said James Dagg, CTO at Altair.

Running on both MacOS and Windows as a standalone product or under Altair’s flexible units-based licensing model, Inspire Studio and Inspire Render open up designers’ creativity from the constraints of traditional CAD tools, all while ensuring the export of robust digital models for product development.

“Altair Inspire Studio is the ideal tool that enables me to experiment, research, and discover shapes that otherwise would be just an idea, an image in my mind,” explained Luca Palmini, designer and owner of Row Design, an Italian fashion and accessories studio.

“As a designer, I appreciate the quality of the modeller and the simplicity of managing individual components, allowing me to continuously apply changes in the quest for the perfect balance between form and function.”
