Software and Tools

Industry Standard Software

Using the best up to date software and a flexible workflow is important in visualisation work in order to respond to potential changes in design and when being up to speed is imperative. Using industry standard software is also important in order to work with a variety of digital data and to export in a range of acceptable digital formats. We work with current CAD and 3D file formats and have particular expertise in the use of the following software:

AutoCAD and relevant elements of the current Autodesk AEC collection / Autodesk 3D Studio Max / Adobe Photoshop / Adobe InDesign / Adobe Premiere / Real-time viewing software / Various up to date mapping, modelling, real-time viewing and publishing software, based on client requirements.

Application Tools

New Visual Solutions has developed a unique set of application tools. 'Key 3D' Application Software for 3D Studio Max 3D was sold to over 50 multi-disciplinary planning and design practices over a period of 6 years from 2002 to 2008 as part of the Key Systems Group of Companies. Our company, Key 3D Ltd was later renamed to New Visual Solutions and has been providing specialised visualisation services ever since. Although the application software is no longer available to purchase today, we upgrade and use these tools in-house on a daily basis.
