The latest Quadro® graphics cards enable you to use advanced textures and materials on large assemblies without slowing down the design process. Stylists can now use realistic materials like car paint, diamond, and leather stitching to render life-like models. Electrical and hydraulics engineering teams can navigate complete airplane or car assemblies to make correct technical decisions faster. Go ahead and rotate, pan, zoom, and modify without worry. Quadro gives you the power you need.
CATIA Live Rendering provides an intuitive and interactive means for creating images that rival photographs, up to 10x faster with an NVIDIA Multi-GPU configuration. NVIDIA Multi-GPU-powered workstations are the first to deliver a unified platform that combines the industry-leading professional 3D graphics capability of Quadro GPUs and the high performance computing power of NVIDIA Tesla™ GPUs. The Tesla co-processors automatically take on the heavy lifting of rendering, freeing the Quadro GPUs to do what they do best—enabling rich interactive graphics. The long wait for stunning, print-quality images is a thing of the past. As you add Quadro and Tesla GPUs, performance accelerates, so you actually get more than what you pay for.
Workstations with NVIDIA Multi-GPU technology provide CATIA and CATIA Live Rendering users with greater graphics and computational performance than ever. Engineers and designers in industries ranging from automotive and aerospace to consumer packaged goods can perform fast SIMULIA Abaqus simulations or photorealistic rendering while still working on their designs.
NVIDIA Iray physically based rendering software helps designers create with confidence by interacting in real time with forms, materials, and lights so they can precisely visualize the final manufactured products they’re creating. CATIA Live Rendering, NVIDIA Iray and Quadro let designers try out design iterations while photorealistically viewing the impact of their design decisions interactively, without having to wait for renders.
This enables more accurate and predictable design visualization and more effective review meetings. Because designers can leverage this technology as part of their usual workflow, they can also explore more design concepts in less time with the confidence that they’re seeing a lifelike, photorealistic virtual product.
With complex add-on programs and long wait times, photorealistic rendering used to be reserved for styling and marketing only. Today, realistic models are a necessity for designers and engineers for more accurate and faster decisions throughout the entire process. The integration of NVIDIA Iray within CATIA means designers and engineers can now engage in interactive, photorealistic team reviews for rapid and effective decision making. With the power of NVIDIA Quadro GPUs you can seamlessly walk through photorealistic scale models and modify them on the fly if necessary.
Review and change materials interactively using lifelike material libraries. Visualize reflections and refraction effects to see how different materials will look and interact with one another before materials are ordered and prototypes are built.
With CATIA Live Rendering stunningly accurate images are ready for prime time as soon as the design is done. Go right from the 3D model to the photorealistic representation of the product for use, as-is, in marketing or training materials.
