The acquisition will provide customers with enhanced 3D data visualization, high-end rendering and VR capabilities via its comprehensive suite of 3D product lifecycle management applications.

Tony Hemmelgarn, CEO, Siemens PLM software, comments, “With this acquisition, we increase the accuracy of the digital twin by adding advanced visualization, rendering and virtual reality technology into all phases of the virtual product development process. The visualization and virtual reality space is continually changing and growing, and Lightwork Design has the advanced 3D data visualization, rendering and virtual reality technology required to help keep us in the forefront of the marketplace.”

Siemens improves the ‘open business’ strategy of the company and provides software toolkits for 3D data pre-processing for visualization, rendering and virtual reality.
