Lighting It Up: Autodesk and KeyShot Partner to Thrill Product Designers

Categories: Design Visualization Generative design

Autodesk and Luxion, a leading developer of advanced rendering and lighting technology and makers of KeyShot, are expanding their partnership with a new integration of KeyShot rendering with Autodesk Fusion 360.

The companies have been working together for years as Luxion is a member of the Autodesk Developer Network; however, this is the first time Luxion has developed an integration with a cloud-based Autodesk offering. Fusion 360 is the world’s first cloud-based software created specifically for people looking to fuse stunning aesthetic design with great product engineering. And Fusion users couldn’t be more excited about the new integration:

“I’m loving KeyShot with Fusion. It just seems like they were made for each other.” – Stan Hisel, Product Designer and Mechanical Engineer

“I was particularly impressed with the ability to save a KeyShot (*.bip) file, close both programs, open them up later, load the *bip file and continue to work with live linking. Absolutely brilliant.” – Gus Petrikas, 3D Artist


With KeyShot, Fusion 360 users have the ability to quickly create photorealistic 3D renderings, animations and interactive visuals used in communicating concepts, delivering internal presentations, developing digital prototypes and creating sales or marketing visuals. The high level of integration between Fusion 360 and KeyShot will save time and improve efficiency for designers, engineers and anyone creating 3D visuals in the product development process.
