Client Configuration

So your master configuration is set up.  The slaves are connected.  What now?  Well, before you can send a job to the network, you need to make sure that your computer can “talk” to the master via the queue-master connection. This queue-master connection must be set up within KeyShot Network Queue on the client’s side. From now on, we’ll refer to KeyShot 6 AND the computer on which it runs as the client. Also, we will use the KeyShot 6 version as reference. Nevertheless, the instructions in this manual apply to all KeyShot versions.

Client Configuration Instructions

1. Download and Install KeyShot Network Rendering.  Follow the prompts and click Finish.


2. The configuration wizard appears. Select Queue only and click Finish (PC) or Done (Mac).


3.  The KeyShot Network Queue application will launch and will connect to your master automatically.  Otherwise go to File,  Connection Settings and make sure that Auto detect master is enabled.


You may also disable Auto detect master and specify a Master hostname and the correct Queue port number.


4. Click Apply. KeyShot Network Queue will connect to your master.

You can now render over the network.

Technical Tip:  If KeyShot Network Queue cannot connect to your master, then you may contact Luxion Customer Support at for further assistance.
