Expanding upon a history of providing industry-leading, real-time simulation of soil, CM Labs announced an all new, expanded Deformable Terrain zone in Vortex Studio 2019b with features that go beyond digging and pushing soil. While still allowing the deformation of a given surface using digging tools (bucket or blade), vehicles’ wheels can now directly impact the terrain, compressing and deforming it on each pass, creating ruts and graphical marks modeled on specific textures.
“Over the past two decades, our team has developed some of the most advanced capabilities in engineering-based simulation,” said Lisa Barbieri, Vice President Marketing and Customer Experience. “Vortex Studio 2019b expands a powerful toolset, making it easier than ever before to generate & deploy simulations that look and feel closer to reality.”
Along with the new terrain system, the latest version of CM Labs’ real-time simulation software adds a modular vehicle design process and streamlined installation, while making distribution and integration easier.
