Delta Knowledge Releases Advanced Plugins for Realsoft 3D V5
Delta Knowledge has released two plugin products for Realsoft 3D v5.
Chrono::R3D is a multibody simulation software. It can be used for multibody analysis, complex collision simulations, real-time animation of vehicles and other simulation tasks of complex mechanisms.
The plugin is available in two versions. The entry level Chrono::R3D Studio plugin costs 150 Euros, and the more extensive Chrono::R3D Extreme edition costs 320 Euros. Both plugins have the same simulation features, but the extreme edition has the ability to save save plots and graphs of recorded variables.
Delta Knowledge has given the following generous introduction offer: Customers, who purchase the Chrono::R3D plugin before the 6th of June 2007, will get the Extreme edition at the cost of the Studio edition! You can purchase the plugin from the web shop of www.realsoft.com.
Chrono simulation system is also available as a standalone middleware product. Software developers can easily take advantage of the advanced algorithms contained in the CHRONO::ENGINE library. For more information, please visit deltaknowledge.com.
The second released plugin is Revolution4D. This plugin expands the modeling features of the Realsoft3D software by integrating the functionality of the OpenCASCADE geometric kernel. For example, Revolution4D can load complex 3D models generated by high-end CAD modelers in STEP or IGES formats. Revolution4D is available free of cost in the Software Updates area of realsoft.com.
Chrono and Revolution4D are first released for the Windows platforms. They require the latest Realsoft 3D v5 SP4.

Warm thanks to our customers and partners for your support.
During this year 2005, two free service packs were released. They included some important new features, such as the new user interface look with customizeable 32-bit icons. However, most development efforts were already targeted to the next version 6, which will become available during the second half of 2006. Many thanks for the useful feedback, which you have sent to us via email and the user forums.
We look forward continuing the co-operation with you during the year 2006.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

The improvements of the Service Pack 1 are already included into the versions for other platforms (Linux, Irix, Mac OSX). Realsoft's development efforts will now be focused on making V5 for these platforms available as soon as possible.
Thank you for your support during the year 2004. The new Realsoft 3D version 5 was just released successfully, and a new Service Pack release and the Linux Version 5 are almost ready for shipping.
