Simul Chowdhury: Editor

Being a leading name of software development for animation, creation, rendering and Integration, E-on software always keeps a game changer attitude with the new application for the users. The new releases continue to cast a spell over the 3D designing world with advanced functions and tools. Their effort makes the virtual world as much real as the real one with all equally viable substances. The new Release 3 of VUE and PlantFactory 2016 retain the legacy. These applications are smart enough to add nuanced details to your design, adding a real feel to the virtual world.

The free version of the software application is available for the users. These applications come up with as many features as you may want to have to create a magical 3D work the same as you expected. The new versions always bring forth the company’s objective towards creating an amiable space for designers and artists. It always goes a step further to reflect a sense of innovation and creativity of the designing. The main objectives remain unchanged in their designing and the releases – offering a user-friendly approach, enhancing the base of the current technologies, improving the performance of the application gradually.

The key features of these two new releases are discussed here. The information given below is stated according to the press release of the company itself. You can visit their official site for more details. The key features of VUE 2016 R3 –
