What is Unity?
Unity is a game engine, however, Unity is used for much more than just games. Used in almost all industries that have a need for real-time 3D, such as architecture, automotive, engineering and education.
See how Marxent created “a browser-based, interior-design tool that lets customers and sales associates mix-and-match furniture, colors, wall treatments, and dimensions in a rich 3D environment”.
Rendered output is industry standard and works perfectly with Unity, already optimized for real-time rendering and performance.
