3D engineering animation and visualisation

Engineering and technical animation direct from your 3D CAD assemblies with render farm support.

3D engineering visualisations

Digital solutions for the aerospace, automotive, electrical, environmental, oil and gas, mining, industrial and manufacturing industries. Ideal to promote, inform or educate.

Native 3D CAD import

We can import product assemblies and parts from all major 3D CAD programs with no tweaking or data fix-up required.

  • SolidWorks
  • Autodesk Inventor
  • ProE/Creo, Solid Edge
  • UG NX
  • Catia
  • AutoCAD
  • Revit
  • Navisworks
  • Rhino

Rendering in the cloud

For larger projects or when working to tight timeframes, we push our renders to the cloud. Using the massive rendering power provided by a 3000+ CPU render farm, our render servers calculate still images and 3D animations at breathtaking speed.

3D scan data

If you don’t have 3D CAD data, we can scan and build 3D models using our in-house scanner. Our 3D scanner uses HD colour cameras and a highly-sensitive infrared projector allowing a closer scan range and higher resolution than previous generation devices. We stitch together multiple shots into a single mesh and import into our animation software.

Engineering excellence

With an engineering background derived from a degree in aeronautical engineering at Imperial College and over 11 years of motorsport experience at the highest level, our founder, Simon Jennings, positions Kinesomania as an expert in the technical and engineering animation arena.

Experience includes aerodynamic design across multiple formulae including Indycar, Le Mans Sports Prototype and Formula 1 (including 5 years as Head of Aerodynamics).

A completely transparent process, fixed pricing and unlimited revisions at every stage.

  • Script Writing

    We will work with you to produce a script detailing running order, scene focus and outlining important on scene visuals, such as part naming / numbering, call outs and dimensioning.

  • Look and Feel

    Following your guidance, brand guidelines and any supplied artwork, we’ll create a still frame mock up defining the proposed look-and-feel. We’ll ask for your feedback and make unlimited revisions as required.

  • Voice Talent

    We provide professional voiceovers in multiple languages and with a variety of English accents, including British, American and Australian. We’ll provide demo reels for you to select your voice talent and then we’ll arrange the booking, recording, proofing, editing and mastering.

  • Low Res Animatic

    We’ll roll out a complete, low resolution animatic of the proposed animation. We’ll ask for your feedback and sign off, making unlimited revisions where required, before we move on to the final, high quality render.

  • Final Render

    Once the look and feel and animatic are signed off, we'll update textures throughout and refine the animation. We'll output a high quality render and post it for your review and feedback, revising as appropriate before exporting a final version.

Simple online approval

We’ll provide a simple online platform for you to review and comment on progress at every stage. We’ll revise at each step in line with your recommendations and send back for final approval. We provide unlimited revisions at every stage.

Project milestones

Each milestone must be signed off before we can proceed to the next stage.

  • Script sign off
  • Look-and-feel and animatic sign off
  • Animation sign off

Fixed cost guarantee

We provide unlimited changes right up to the point of sign off at each milestone. Unless there are post sign off alterations, we offer a fixed price guarantee where you’ll never pay a penny more than the agreed fee.

Why choose us?

You rightly expect your video to be creative, well conceived, inspiring and of the highest quality. You also rightly expect to be taken care of in a superior way at every step of the journey.

So if quality and service are a given, how do you choose an animation production partner?

Part and assembly import from your 3D CAD system

cad-system

ProE/Creo
We can import the top-level .asm assembly file. Alternatively we can import from a top-level Neutral .neu.asm assembly file, or a STEP AP214 file.

cad-system

SolidWorks
We can import the native Solidworks top-level .sldasm file or a “BREP Manifold Solids IGES” file which has been exported from SolidWorks.

cad-system

Autodesk Inventor
We can import the top-level .iam assembly file, or better yet, import from a DWF-3D file.

cad-system

Solid Edge
We can import the top-level .asm assembly file or a STEP AP214 file. If using STEP, the “AP214” option must be chosen on the Solid Edge STEP exporter options panel.

cad-system

UG NX
UG NX conversions are always best done with a STEP AP214 file or alternatively a JT file.

cad-system

Catia
We can import a BREP Solids IGES file.

cad-system

AutoCAD, Revit, Navisworks
For AutoCAD, Revit and Navisworks, we import from a DWF-3D file. DWF-3D is one of the very best file formats for data translation.

cad-system

Rhino
We import from a native .3dm file.
