Autodesk buys Numenus raytracing technology

Friday, August 26th, 2011 | Posted by Jim Thacker

Autodesk has acquired “certain technology-related assets” from Numenus, developer of specialist NURBS rendering software RenderGin.

The real-time raytracing company’s founders have also moved to Autodesk.

Only operational since 2009, Numenus hasn’t yet had a chance to make much impact on the market. (RenderGin itself made it to a version 1.0 release, but you can still download it for free from the company’s site.)

However, given that the Autodesk news release mentions its “commitment to provide a comprehensive Digital Prototyping solution to manufacturers of all sizes”, we’d imagine it sees the Numenus technology fitting more with its Inventor product family than 3ds Max et al – or possibly, even with Autodesk 123D.
