Unity acquires 3D data company Pixyz

Engine maker Unity has snapped up 3D data software firm Pixyz.

The deal was announced on the firm's website, though no figure has been placed on the deal as of year. Unity says that this acquisition will allow developers to import 3D data into its engine faster, as well as optimising models for real-time development.

The two companies have worked together before, partnering up back in 2018.

"For years, teams across industries have used Unity to enhance how they bring products from vision to reality," Unity GM and VP Julien Faure wrote.

"From automotive to construction and beyond, the world is embracing the use of real-time 3D to accelerate design collaboration, develop immersive training environments, create interactive marketing experiences, and more.

"The manufacturing of cars, appliances, buildings, and many industrial products requires the use of massively complex data, and the process of preparing or importing this design and engineering data for real-time development can be incredibly challenging."

Unity saw a 41 per cent increase in revenue for the first quarter of 2021.
