LumenRT 2015 Adds Enhanced MicroStation Features
NEW CAPABILITIES FOR LARGE SCALE SCENERY, TRAFFIC ANIMATION, AND ROADWAY DESIGN
November 17, 2014, Beaverton, Oregon — E-on software is pleased to announce an enhanced feature set and richer integration with Bentley MicroStation – the leading CAD solution for civil engineering and infrastructure design.
LumenRT 2015 contains an expanded MicroStation content library with over 100 plants and trees, 125 vehicles, and 100 characters. In addition, LumenRT 2015 GeoDesign users can export MicroStation Traffic and VISSIM animations directly into LumenRT.
Once inside LumenRT, MicroStation users will enjoy many new features including interactive terrain editing and sculpting, object instance painting for adding hundreds of trees in a single brush stroke, and road design specific features that designate pavement markings as "always on top" to eliminate z-fighting artifacts.
"LumenRT provides a new avenue for MicroStation users to create real-time 3D visualizations of their designs," said Jerry Flynn, Bentley Systems Visualization Expert.
Kurt Stiles, Project Manager, Visual Engineering Resource Group at Washington State Dept of Transportation adds, "LumenRT is our communication tool of choice. It lets us easily produce professional videos and interactive experiences that empower the audience and provide in-depth understanding of our projects."
"The response to LumenRT from MicroStation users has been extremely positive since we first introduced the MicroStation integration early last year," explained Nicholas Phelps, CEO of e-on software. "Building on this success, we are excited about the growing potential in the transportation and civil infrastructure markets where the combination of MicroStation and LumenRT provides a killer solution for immersive 3D communication of large scale models and scenes. With LumenRT 2015, MicroStation users can generate stunning, real-time visualizations in just minutes and add large scale vehicle simulations directly from MicroStation or VISSIM."
LumenRT is the leading 3D immersive communication platform for architecture and GeoDesign. With LumenRT, architects, designers, engineers, and GIS professionals can convey their design ideas and vision in much more compelling and engaging fashion – to tell a story by allowing the audience to "experience" the design rather than just seeing it.
