Relux

ReluxDesktop – Now available

02/02/2017

That’s what Relux’s new version is all about. Download the program free of charge right now and take a look inside it. But, be careful, you could quickly become addicted to it and put your good old ReluxSuite to one side. Because who doesn't want to be able to work faster? We’ve run an experiment with users to test the efficiency of the new version. Participants were given the task of planning identical projects first with the old version, ReluxSuite, and then with the new ReluxDesktop. Users worked an average of 14% faster with the new version!

The initial version of a new program kernel has facilitated dynamic planning for indoor and outdoor installations and is being continuously expanded. At the same time, the processing durations of the raytracer are several times shorter. Put simply: the more processors your computer has, the faster you’ll work.

In the first phase, the program is being delivered in the five basic languages of DE/EN/IT/FR/ES. The other 19 languages are to follow in February. An Online help in the form of Support, a knowledge base and a community forum is available in English at relux.com.

You will find further information at relux.com and on the social media channels. This e-mail also includes an initial video (see below), beginning with ReluxDesktop.
