Altair Inspire Studio is the new solution for innovative designers, architects, and digital artists to create, evaluate and visualize designs faster than ever before. With unrivaled flexibility and precision, its unique construction history feature along with multiple modeling techniques empowers users throughout the creative process.


By building on the functions of Altair Evolve, Inspire Studio introduces a sleek, efficient user experience. Each tool and workflow are now optimized for an efficient design experience from initial sketches to exploring concepts with parametric NURBS-based polygonal, surface, and solid modeling.


Produce stunning product presentations in real-time with the in-built high-quality, physically-based global illumination renderer supporting images and animations.


Running on both MacOS and Windows as a standalone product or under Altair’s flexible token-based licensing model, Inspire Studio frees designers’ creativity from the constraints of traditional CAID tools, while assuring export of robust digital models for product development.

Altair University

Altair University: Het online platform voor Altair Training & Academic Programs

The home for Altair Training & Academic Programs

Altair facilitates a source of instructive training programs, tutorials and other learning materials with Altair University. Software users from the Altair platform, but also students can go here for learning purposes or amplify their knowledge of the software.

For example, as a user on this platform you will find the Training Program with an overview of (virtual) training, tutorials, ebooks and learning materials that you can follow at your own pace. Students can go to the Academic Program for free software licenses, academic learning tools, tutorials, ebooks and even internships!

You can also use the Altair Support Forum at Altair University where you can go for specific user questions.

Free Altair Student Edition

Functions

Inspire Studio is equipped with the following functionalities to offer you versatile 3D NURBS modeling.

Complete Feature List

Fantastic User Interface
Well known from the other Altair Inspire products, Studio offers you a breathtaking look at your workspace, containing multi-touch icons, and adjustable, tabbed toolbar and a programmable Tool Belt. This gives you access to all modeling and rendering tools you frequently use and brings any functionality directly to you.

Hybrid Modeling
With Altair Inspire Studio, you can combine working with sketches, curves, surfaces, polygonal modelling (SubD) and solids, all in one program.

Construction History
Automatically backtrack to an earlier stage of your design, reusing or modifying objects from past stages in real-time.

Sketching
Well known from the more CAD-likes like e.g. SolidWorks, you can now also use Sketches in Altair Inspire Studio. Create and edit constraint-based technical sketches by easily applying geometric relationships between components and drive your 3D geometry completely parametrically.

NURBS Surfaces & Curves

Utilize Non-uniform Rational B-Splines (NURBS) curves and surfaces to accurately represent even the most complex shapes with flexibility and precision.

PolyNURBS

Now create the most complex shapes easily in 3D using polygonal modeling. Combine the ease and simplicity of polygonal modeling with the precision and flexibility of NURBS to quickly create free-form surface and solid geometry that is smooth and G2 continuous.

Polygonal Modeling to NURBS
We call the SubD’d smooth polygonal shapes in Studio PolyNURBS, because as soon as a polygon is smoothed, it automatically becomes a NURBS shape that can be exported with maximum precision to any other 3D software or machine.

Animations
Bring your designs to life with easy-to-create object animations. Move, scale and rotate objects, also along a path as the camera moves. You can save your animation in a standard film format such as MPG, of course also in a photorealistic way.

Photorealistic Rendering and Animation
Create high-quality rendered images and animations with a physically based global illumination engine in biased photorealistic, unbiased and Presto interactive modes. In other words: very, very nice results!

solidThinking Units

Access to all products within the Altair Inspire Platform!

solidThinking Units is a revolutionary license model replacing the traditional way of licensing software.

Normally you’d choose a software title for which you’d purchase a license. With solidThinking Units, you choose a number Units to start any product you want for which you have enough Units.

You lease solidThinking Units per year or per month.

solidThinking Units can be freely distributed within your organization. This way, you can grant access to the software to anyone in your organization. In case you have unused Units left, you can use these to perform calculations in the Cloud! This makes solidThinking Units the most flexible software licensing model that exists today.

Inspire Studio History

New in Altair Studio 2019 (October 2019)
  • User Interface
    • Completely New, redesigned Interface. Beautiful, more intuitive and in line with all the other Inspire products.
    • Object Grid - Instantly see and change status of any object (hidden, rendered receive shadow, …).
    • New interface elements for entering numerical values, options and objects.
  • Sketching & Constraints
    • A completely new way to set up your model. Use a 2D Sketch as a base for a fully parametric object. Constrain curves in the sketch, project 3D geometry into a Sketch. Designers who are familiar using e.g. SolidWorks will love this!
  • Other Tools
    • Twist tool now accepts multiple objects.
    • Paste with History - select objects and sketches and copy/paste an exact, editable object. Particularly useful when using the Select Source Objects tool.
  • Polygonal Modeling
    • Make Selection Groups.
    • Extract Groups of Faces into new object.
    • Hide Faces for better visibility while editing.
    • Automatically wrap objects using PolyNURBS.
    • Automatic Symmetry. Model in sync when and where you want.
  • Rendering
    • Dark Room: relight, compare, edit image settings.
    • Continue modelling while rendering.
    • Have more machines help rendering with yours (network rendering).
    • Resize Thumbnail Previews in Render Library.
    • Instance tool updated to be able to paint randomized objects. Ideal for filling areas with e.g. grass, lots of tables/chairs, fluffy rugs, ...
  • Attention
    • Technical Drawing mode will be released in a future update!
    • Evolve files can be opened but without history. You may continue using Evolve to edit old projects.
New in Evolve 2017 (February 2017)
