What is Pixyz used for?

Pixyz products enable you to optimize 3D data workflows and prepare 3D data for any visualization use.

  • Optimize complex 3D models to create real-time application-ready assets.
  • Automate preparation and processing of 3D, CAD and point cloud pipelines.
  • Enable instant review and seamless collaboration.

Automate and optimize your data pipeline

These Pixyz products ensure your 3D data is optimized for Unity regardless of the source. The Pixyz tessellation algorithm makes it easy to go from import to real-time publishing.

Key benefits

Import

Import small to large assemblies of over 45 supported formats, including CAD, tessellated/mesh file formats, point clouds, and more. You can also live-link assets in Unity with the original source data so changes update automatically.

Optimize

Create LODs and UVs, merge and explode meshes, change pivots, and more to build ready-to-use assets within Unity. Optimize any data natively within the Unity Editor without re-importing, so you can focus on your ultimate goal – developing and sharing immersive, real-time 3D experiences.

Visualize

The faster you can get your 3D models into Unity, the sooner you can visualize and shape them into real-time 3D experiences for your target audience.

Publish

With your 3D models imported and optimized in Unity, you just have to build once to publish 3D CAD visualizations to over 25 platforms for mobile, desktop, virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), and more.

Here are a few examples of how customers are using Pixyz products. Explore the content hub for more customer stories, webinars and articles.

Faster data ingest for Autoliv

By leveraging Pixyz, Autoliv’s creative pipeline was transformed. The time for CAD data transfer and optimization was reduced from four days per individual product down to just six hours.

Optimizing 3D data for an interactive marketing experience

When creating their product configurator, Arksen and their design partner canVERSE used Pixyz Studio to convert CAD data to tessellated triangle meshes, build UVs for texturing, and optimize the geometry.

Helping Volkswagen Group of America envision the future

A key component of Volkswagen’s visualization pipeline is bringing CAD data into Unity using Pixyz. This enables the team to create interactive experiences across different platforms to ideate, prototype and communicate.

Product questions

Which versions of Unity is Pixyz compatible with?

You can access the full technical documentation for each Pixyz application here.

Which 3D file formats does Pixyz support?

Pixyz supports more than 45 file formats for various industries, including CATIA, JT, STEP, IFC, PVZ, NWD, USD and glTF. See the full list of supported files by Pixyz here.

Why can’t Unity read my CAD files directly?

CAD files rely on exact parametric surfaces (called BRep, or NURBS), whereas real-time 3D engines like Unity need triangular representations of 3D objects (called meshes). Pixyz translates CAD data into mesh data.

How can I import CAD data into Unity?

For basic interactive workflows, use Pixyz Plugin to directly import CAD files.

For highly complex, heavy data, you can use Pixyz Studio (interactive process) or Pixyz Scenario Processor (automated process) to preprocess your CAD model into a format that can be easily imported into Unity, including prefabs, FBX, and glTF.

 

How can I lighten my model with Pixyz?

Pixyz offers many methods to simplify your model, including:

  • Reducing the number of triangles through decimation or Remove Hidden Objects
  • Reducing the complexity of the hierarchy and number of entities in your scenes (sub-meshes with merge or combine)
  • Creating a new optimized GameObject through retopology (proxy-mesh + bake) or Create Impostor / Billboard

Do I need a separate license to use Pixyz products?

Pixyz licenses are provided as a separate entitlement from Unity licenses.
