Altair Inspire Studio

All-in-one Industrial Design Solution

What is Altair Inspire Studio?

Altair Inspire Studio is the new solution for innovative designers, architects, and digital artists to create, evaluate and visualize designs faster than ever before. With unrivaled flexibility and precision, its unique construction history feature along with multiple modeling techniques empowers users throughout the creative process.

By building on the functions of Altair Evolve, Inspire Studio introduces a sleek, efficient user experience. Each tool and workflow are now optimized for an efficient design experience from initial sketches to exploring styling with polygonal, freeform, and PolyNURBS parametric modeling.

Produce stunning product presentations in real-time with the in-built high-quality, physically-based global illumination renderer using biased photorealistic, unbiased and GPU modes.

Running on both Mac OS X and Windows as a standalone product or under Altair’s flexible token-based licensing model, Inspire Studio frees designers’ creativity from the constraints of traditional CAID tools, while assuring export of robust digital models for product development.

Why Inspire Studio?

Change What's Possible

Inspire Studio enhances creativity by letting designers drive their design. Via an intuitive user interface, with its powerful construction history tool, quickly create, explore multiple iterations, and make changes without any rework.

Enhance Flexibility

Mix and match modeling techniques within the same environment. Combine fast, free-form polygonal modeling with the control and precision of surface and solid modeling to effortlessly create and explore even the most challenging designs.

Recalibrate Reality

Offering an intuitive setup, large choice of environments and materials, Inspire Studio’s rendering engine creates stunning images and complex animations, in real time with physically accurate lighting.

Key Features

Construction History

Automatically backtrack to an earlier stage of your design, reusing or modifying objects from past stages in real-time.


Create and edit constraint-based technical sketches by easily applying geometric relationships between components.

Surfaces & Curves

Utilize Non-uniform Rational B-Splines (NURBS) curves and surfaces to accurately represent even the most complex shapes with flexibility and precision.


Combine the ease and simplicity of polygonal modeling with the precision and flexibility of NURBS to quickly create free-form surface and solid geometry that is smooth and continuous.

Rendering & Animations

Create high-quality rendered images and animations with physically-based global illumination engine in biased photorealistic, unbiased, and Presto interactive modes.

Tool Belts

One-click access to all modeling and rendering tools brings any functionality directly to you. Customize Tool Belts to meet your needs.
