This is really exciting! But what a bummer that the Linux version is not out yet.
(Many of us FreeCAD users are on Linux)
CADRays is basically ported on Linux, it just lack some polish
. So release of Linux version will definitely happen in near future.
So that's in real time like Luxion KeyShot and Bunkspeed Shot?
Yes, although as far as I remember, KeyShot performs simplified preview rendering in real time and starts from scratch for final rendering. CADRays always do final rendering progressively. Bunkspeed Shot seems to work only on NVIDIA cards since it based on IRay.
BTW: Since we need to install MS VS 2015 X64-version what about 32 bit users ?
We are not sure that there is a real demand on 32 bit version. It limits memory usage badly which is undesired for huge modern CAD models. If anyone really need it please post your request here and we will consider release of 32 bit version.
