    SOLIDWORKS Visualize has a great selection of material appearances right out of the box. It allows users to improve upon the standard SOLIDWORKS appearances and make their renderings look amazing. More choices are never a bad thing, and in 2019, SOLIDWORKS added support for NVIDIA MDL materials to SOLIDWORKS Visualize.

I recently took advantage of these tools to complete a project that has been at the back of my mind for some time. It was a great opportunity to show how to use the SOLIDWORKS integrated platform from design all the way through the manufacturing and post-manufacturing process.
