WireFusion 5 is the world’s most powerful professional realtime 3D visualization solution. Using Demicron® proprietary technology, WireFusion offers the ultimate in professional tools required for quick and easy creation of interactive concept designs, digital prototypes, architectural visualizations, e-commerce and e-learning solutions.
Use your favorite 3D authoring tool, such as Autodesk VIZ, 3ds Max, Maya, AliasStudio, Cinema 4D, modo, SketchUp, LightWave 3D or any other 3D tool capable of exporting to X3D or VRML, to bring your 3D models and 3D worlds to life.
Import your 3D content into WireFusion, on Mac or Windows, and have it published to the web. It’s as easy as 1-2-3.
With the visual interface you can easily add advanced functionality and interactivity to your presentations, even without any prior programming or scripting skills. Simply put, WireFusion is for everyone, so start sharing your ideas!

New feature: When publishing as an Applet, you can now choose to let the presentaion warn when other WireFusion presentations are already running.
New feature: Push Text/Text Pushed ports added to TextArea, TextField, ComboBox and PasswordField.
New feature: Push Value/Value Pushed ports added to SpinBox.
New feature: Push Selection State/Selection State Pushed ports added to CheckBox, RadioButton, ToggleButton, ImageCheckBox and ImageRadioButton.
Bug fix: In ImageButton, ImageCheckBox and ImageRadioButton, modifying a label appearance could affect the label appearance belonging to another state, even if chosen not to do so.
Bug fix: In 3D Scene, the WireFusion Popup appeared when releasing the right mouse button outside the 3D area.
Bug fix: In 3D Scene, wireframe rendering on objects with polygons containing more than 3 vertices did not always render all edges.
Bug fix: In 3D Scene, the last mouse navigation movement when releasing the mouse button was not processed.
Bug fix: In 3D Scene, when activating a Navigation Renderer the rendering would sometimes not be switched back to normal rendering.
Bug fix: In the 3D Scene dialog, improvements have been made on the resizing of the window and the tab panels.
Bug fix: In 3D Scene, the camera animation when setting a camera using the API method X3DScene.setViewpoint(...) did not work.
Bug fix: In 3D Scene, when using World mode and animating the floor under the Avatar (eg. an elevator), the Avatar was not affected.
Previous updates are also included with this update:
Bug fix: When publishing as Applet, the Screenshot Background option did not work.
Bug fix: When closing the preview window, WireFusion would occasionally crash (the previous fix for this did not completely fix this problem)
Bug fix: In the 3D Scene dialog, loading VRML files containing extended ascii characters as node name caused an exception.
Bug fix: In the 3D Scene dialog, performing a Replace and pressing \'Cancel\', followed by a project save and a Wirefusion restart, could cause the 3D Scene Wob Dialog to freeze while opening.
New feature: In the 3D Scene dialog, the user interface is now no longer locked while the 3D preview is updating.
Bug fix: In the 3D Scene dialog, the merging of Objects in files containing USE on Color, Coordinate, Normal and TextureCoordinate nodes is now supported.
New feature: In the 3D Scene dialog, when loading a X3D/VRML file containing Objects with only one polygon or line, the option to merge them is added. This is useful for files exported from Sketchup.
Bug fix: In the 3D Scene dialog, the OpenGL preview was not updated after doing a replace.
Bug fix: In the 3D Scene dialog, running Simplygon did not work on non-textured objects or on X3D/VRML files containing IndexedLineSet or PointSet.
Bug fix: In the 3D Scene dialog, after running Simplygon the polygon count text in the Object list was not immediately updated.
Bug fix: In the 3D Scene dialog, when enabling streaming in the Loading tab and editing the Object streaming list the dialog could freeze.
Bug fix: In the 3D Scene dialog, the compression sliders in the Loading tab were reset to their default each time the dialog was opened.
Bug fix: Tooltips were not displayed at the correct coordinates when located in opaque Scenes.
New feature: The 500 wires limit of objects has been removed. Any number of wires can now be used.
New feature: Running more than one WireFusion instance at the same time could lead to project curruption when saving project files. Now it is not possible to launch WireFusion if WireFusion is already running.
New feature: OpenGL Applets now revert to software rendering on Linux (if auto download Java option selected), due to bug inte Java preventing OpenGL applets from running correctly on Linux platform.
New feature: Heap space monitor removed, since monitoring heap space in some cases caused WireFusion instabilities.
