Software makes the difference
Glasses-free 3D display systems require specialized software to display 3D content. Depending on the type of content – pre-rendered videos or real-time 3D application – and 3D format, different programs are required.

3D without workarounds - directly from CAD and simulation software
With ZLINK you not only make your CAD software capable of 3D without glasses, you also extend it to a sleek presentation tool. While you control the complex surface of your application and design the project on your 2D display, your customer or colleague moves independently through the glasses-free 3D presentation on a connected ZVIEW display. And this with maximum comfort via gamepad or SpaceMouse, without any disturbing GUI elements. In addition, ZLINK enables a true-to-scale and in the Z-axis undistorted 3D display, which reproduces the geometry of the 3D data realistically.

Unity Reflect Viewer for ZVIEW
Unity Reflect is a real-time bim product from Unity Technologies that connects to Autodesk Revit, Navisworks, SketchUp and Rhino
“Unity”, Unity logos and other Unity trademarks are trademarks or registered trademarks of Unity Technologies or its affiliates in the United States and other countries. All other names or trademarks are trademarks of their respective owners.
Create real-time 3D experiences for ZVIEW, VR & AR and more from your BIM data. Unity Reflect helps you win more projects, perform immersive testing, and teach design and construction – all with Unity’s ZVIEW-compatible BIM coordination software. Unity Reflect is connected live to your design tool. Any changes you make in Revit, Navisworks, SketchUp or Rhino are automatically updated in the ReflectZ viewer. Multiple developers and engineers working on different parts of a model can merge their data sets into one Unity Reflect project. The ReflectZ Viewer is also capable of displaying your model at different scales on a ZVIEW display. Scale perception is only possible on stereoscopic systems like ZVIEW. So you can display your data either 1:1 in life size or as a “table model” in 1:100 scale. Just as with ZLINK, the display is geometrically correct and undistorted at any scale, making it possible to experience the impact of architecture long before it is built.
ZBOX/ZVIEW 3D Camera Plugin for Unity
Interactive applications from A-Z for all needs. Unity CREATOR brings your projects and models to life with breathtaking glasses-free 3D experiences on ZVIEW and ZBOX. Benefit from the power of the unity real time engine and display your existing 3D data as it is: spatially! Use OBJ or FBX for the import to unity. Alternatively the plugin Pixyz is recommended for the import of all common CAD formats. With just a few clicks you can process complex models in unity and bundle them for interactive display on ZVIEW or ZBOX.
For the display of finished Unity CREATOR applications you only need a Unity DISPLAY license.
ZBOX/ZVIEW 3D Model Viewer
Our unity based ModelViewer is a service through which we offer you an affordable and easy to use solution for viewing your 3D models: You receive our free viewer with your logo and background. Afterwards you send us your 3D data sets, which we will prepare for you at low cost for use in the viewer.

Overview Stereo Rendering Plugins and Link Software
3D programs from various fields can create stereoscopic images compatible with ZVIEW by using appropriate plug-in render engines or stand-alone rendering software. In addition, some programs can already render natively, i.e. without extension, in stereo or can even display the viewport stereoscopically. Some programs are also capable of interactive display in real time, others are able to present your 3D data stereoscopically using our software ZLINK or ReflectZ presented above.
