    Question for the Alibre Team ...

    Will 'Keyshot 9 for CAD' be available for those on current Alibre maintenance? and if so, do the Alibre team know, what new features/improvements Alibre users can expect to get access to?

    Keyshot is sending a "Final Chance" email for today for free upgrade from 8 to 9. They are asking for a serial code. Can I get that from Alibre or is it in the Keyshot program windows?

    Your Keyshot for Alibre Design is activated from your Alibre Design activation - there is no Keyshot serial code. The information from Keyshot applies to separate newly purchased Keyshot 8 licences, not bundled products, nor pre-existing licences.

    Based on previous experience, it seems likely that in due course Keyshot for Alibre Design for those with current maintenance of Alibre Expert at the time, will be updated. I would expect that to be some time after the official launch of Keyshot 9 (date not yet known) and may coincide with an Alibre product release.

    so its working.
    I have a question, will we ever get KeyVR? has anyone had any experience with it? Oculus Rift S and quest are priced pretty good and are pretty popular, I have been using Rift S for a bit

    If you want a higher version of Keyshot - purchase an upgrade. Some users here have upgraded to get unlimited resolution for example...

    wow the new GPU render option is almost 2-3x+ (quadro rtx 4000) faster then my new AMD 3900X (all cores 4.14Ghz)

    Also while cpu is 100% load gpu does it with under 35%? at least according to windows task manager

    Sure, as soon as you buy it. At the price Luxion is charging for it "per year' I don't think it's going to be an Add On to Alibre any time soon or ever.

    ya I saw that :(
    I guess SimLab is the cheaper alternative for our models to be in VR

    @Max , any news on the availability of Keyshot for Alibre Design v9 ??

    KS 9 is available now. Folks on maint. get all the latest KS upgrades when KS makes them available. Occasionally there may be a lag between when they release and when an exe shows up on our site. For example, their first version of KS9 broke all CAD integrations, such as ours. But it works now.

    Question - when you open KS8 do you not see an Upgrade notification? What if you "check for updates" in their UI?

    No, only advertising for v9 on the splash screen.
    No, it says no new updates available:(

    No, as @idslk says ...

    I've actually loaded KS9 and it does work for me with AD 2019.0.8 ( I got installer from the Keyshot web site ).

    I believe that 'updates for KS are 'within major version' updates. To go to next version you have to install it separately - with KS you can install 2 different versions on the same machine.

    Is that only if you have the full version of KeyShot or does that apply to KeyShot for Alibre too? If the latter, do you have a link to the specific installer.

    EDIT : Just downloaded the v9 installer and it all just works! Love the new fuzz textures and my new RTX3000 GPU is really quick!

    Sorry Simon if I wasn't clear - it was KS for Alibre that I use. I had wanted to check out what happened with KS9 in case users tried it and ran into issues. I had a hunch it would probably work as I'd previously updated from KS7 to KS8 ahead of Alibre publishing the installer.

    FYI - I have Alibre Design Expert and upgraded from KS8 Pro to KS9 Pro when it was released and have had no issues with it. I am currently testing KS9.1 Beta and it has not shown any problems either transferring models from AD to KS.

    I see an update to KS 8.2.80 when opening KS.

    Same if I check for updates.

    As DavidJ noted, "check for updates" only checks for updates on the currently installed version. To go to the next version think of it as an "upgrade". At least that is how is has worked for me.

    DavidJ: where is the download link for KS9 for Alibre? Alibre's support page only offers KS8 upload_2020-1-29_7-24-6.png upload_2020-1-29_7-24-6.png
