Active3D is the 3D technology embeded in AutoTRAX to give you superb, photo-realistic, super fast 3D using the lasted OpenGLTM GPU technology.
Why put up with poor quality, unrealistic 3D views of your PCB. Instead, view your PCB in real-time with…
- Automatic generation of 3D for parametric parts. No need to import 3D models.
- real-time shadows.
- reflective metallic surfaces.
- Texture mapping.
- True 3D text.
- super fast speed.
- and above all, super fast, high quality imaging showing your PCB to you and the world.
Now you can view your PCB complete with shadows, reflective surfaces, 3D copper and even see the solder.

Most Widely Adopted Graphics Standard
OpenGL is the premier environment for developing portable, interactive 2D and 3D graphics applications. Since its introduction in 1992, OpenGL has become the industry's most widely used and supported 2D and 3D graphics application programming interface (API), bringing thousands of applications to a wide variety of computer platforms. OpenGL fosters innovation and speeds application development by incorporating a broad set of rendering, texture mapping, special effects, and other powerful visualization functions. AutoTRAX leverages the power of OpenGL across all popular desktop and workstation platforms, ensuring wide application deployment.
High Visual Quality and Performance
Any visual computing application requiring maximum performance-from 3D animation to CAD to visual simulation-can exploit high-quality, high-performance OpenGL capabilities. These capabilities allows AutoTRAX to produce and display incredibly compelling 2D and 3D graphics.
An independent consortium, the OpenGL Architecture Review Board, guides the OpenGL specification. With broad industry support, OpenGL is the only truly open, vendor-neutral, multiplatform graphics standard.
OpenGL implementations have been available for more than seven years on a wide variety of platforms. Additions to the specification are well controlled, and proposed updates are announced in time for developers to adopt changes. Backward compatibility requirements ensure that existing applications do not become obsolete.
Reliable and portable
AutoTRAX produce consistent visual display results on any OpenGL API-compliant hardware, regardless of operating system or windowing system.
Because of its thorough and forward-looking design, OpenGL allows new hardware innovations to be accessible through the API via the OpenGL extension mechanism. In this way, innovations appear in the API in a timely fashion, letting application developers and hardware vendors incorporate new features into their normal product release cycles.
OpenGL API-based applications can run on systems ranging from consumer electronics to PCs, workstations, and supercomputers. As a result, AutoTRAX can scale to any class of machine that you use.
