Havok Integrates Trian3DBuilder into Havok Simulation Framework, Further strengthening already impressive end to end simulation toolkit

Trian3DBuilder Integration into Havok Simulation Enables Massively Streamlined Workflow when Generating 3D Terrain from Source Data

December 1, 2014 - San Francisco - Havok®, a leader in real-time simulation development and 3D visualization technology, has announced an innovative collaboration with TrianGraphics GmbH to integrate Trian3DBuilder into the Havok Simulation Framework™. Through this integration, simulation creators will benefit from access to one of the most intuitive high speed terrain generation solutions on the market. Adding Trian3DBuilder into the Havok Simulation Framework further strengthens Havok’s position as a thought leader and provider of open ended, modular software development solutions to the training and simulation industries. Havok technology, including the new integration with Trian3DBuilder software, will be available for demonstration at booth #1900 at I/ITSEC 2014, taking place in Orlando, Florida from December 1-5. TrianGraphics will be presenting Trian3DBuilder alongside their full suite of products at booth #871.

"Havok is a passionate believer in pioneering the adoption of open, modular end-to-end training solutions. Our partnership with the talented team at TrianGraphics hugely strengthens our simulation toolkit and gives users the opportunity to dramatically improve terrain generation workflow for large environments and from source data. This will result in increased quality, realism and enhanced workflow for our customer’s simulations” Says, Cory Kumm, Worldwide Director of Military & Simulation “With Trian3DBuilder we are further enhancing our existing support for OpenFlight and MetaFlight with direct support for source data and open standards, reflecting Havok’s commitment to support the training and simulation industry through our continued investment and our open and modular technologies”.

"With Trian3DBuilder TrianGraphics meets the most sophisticated requirements for modern terrain generation tools on the market", says Stephan Kussmaul, Managing Director, TrianGraphics.
