Render Studio

Photorealistic rendering, on any supported web-browser, powered by Onshape

Initially, Render Studio will be offered as a beta capability as the experience and tuning of the offering is optimized. During this beta period, Onshape Professional and Enterprise users will automatically be given access to Render Studio.

What is Render Studio?

Render Studio is a new capability within the Onshape platform that allows users to create photorealistic rendering of CAD models without the need for a high-end graphics processing unit (GPU) or dedicated workstation. Bolstered by a diverse catalog of materials, textures and lighting options, designers and engineers can now create dynamic professional grade images of their Onshape models within a high-resolution, 360-degree environment.


Accelerate CAD Design

Render studio allows designers and engineers to quickly visualize their design modifications in a variety of interchangeable background environments. Rather than waiting through the delays of the traditional development and prototyping process, designers and engineers can now make immediate design improvements and make the choice that best fits their audience, accelerating time-to-market.

Improve Design Collaboration

With Render Studio, users can collaborate in real time with key stakeholders like the marketing department, sharing many rendered options. This easy collaboration enables other CAD and non-CAD users to easily visualize the final product while providing professional grade marketing photo options to use during a new product launch.

Environment Library

The Environment Library within Render Studio lets users create realistic environments with dynamic lighting and shadow effects. Users can choose from a large assortment of options, including the color and intensity of light (lumens) and the overall impact lighting delivers within the scene to create a truly immersive and photorealistic image.

Materials Library

The Materials Library within Render Studio lets users select and model a variety of materials and textures such as metal or rubber or matte finish to apply to their design. This allows users to experiment with and visualize the impact of different materials on their design. Once customized by the user, preferred materials can be saved for future designs, saving time and effort.

Design Updates

With the Design Updates feature, users can select a surface or material to modify, and automatically apply it to all instances where the same component is used. Automatic design updates save time and eliminate the need to select and update each item individually.

Gone are the days of needing expensive workstations to achieve exceptional renders on a CAD system. Render Studio leverages the cloud computing performance of NVIDIA Iray technology to simulate the physical behaviors of light and materials, enabling even photo newcomers to achieve professional product images on any web-based device.
