RESEARCH AND

DEVELOPMENT

R&D is the core activity that drives Next Limit innovation and has allowed the company to develop such world-renowned products like XFlow™ (acquired by Dassault Systems in 2016), RealFlow™, and Maxwell Render™. Next Limit is constantly involved in all kinds of R&D projects, internally or in collaboration with other institutions, public and private, locally or across the world.
