The Core77 Design Awards is presented this year with support from Keyshot and Stratasys. Individually and through their new collaborative workflow, Keyshot and Stratasys help product designers and companies bring new products to market faster, more profitably and with more opportunities to tap into creativity and innovation. In that spirit, we’re excited to include the Keyshot Rendering Prize and the Stratasys 3D Prize for 2021. The winner of each prize will receive a KeyShot Pro license and 3D printing credits from Stratasys in addition to a coveted Core77 Design Award trophy.

KeyShot and Stratasys Collaboration

Stratasys and Luxion are extremely proud that the results of our collaboration are helping designers bring new products to market faster and more profitably. We are excited to share this news and workflow with the Core77 design community with our joint support of the Core77 Design Awards for 2021.

Almost any product designer will tell you that prototyping the shape of a new design with 3D printing is fairly easy. However, accurately simulating color, material and finish, or “CMF,” can take serious time and money. But, thanks to the latest KeyShot 10 3D rendering software and Stratasys J55™ and J8 Series 3D printers, it’s little more than just click and print. The full-color, multi-material Stratasys 3D printers and the latest version of KeyShot from Luxion both now support the new 3MF file format. By saving designs to 3MF, KeyShot 10 produces files ready for printing, with accurate PANTONE™ Validated colors, bump mapping, and the ability to simulate textures like fabric, wood, and glass. The new workflow enables the CMF design phase to start earlier in the design process and can also reduce 3D print modeling time of CMF models to a single day, while traditional modeling for final iterations can take from one to three weeks. Product designers can now reap the rewards of reaching design approval faster, shortening their product development cycles, getting new products to market faster-ahead of their competition and recognizing revenue sooner.
