What is SOLIDWORKS Visualize?
For those who aren’t yet familiar with SOLIDWORKS Visualize, it’s a CAD software that allows you to create and share photorealistic 3D visuals. When you purchase a SOLIDWORKS CAD Professional or Premium license, SOLIDWORKS includes a complimentary seat of Visualize Standard 2017 to active subscriptions. To activate this feature, an additional serial number is required.
How do I find and activate my serial number?
Once you have upgraded to SOLIDWORKS 2017, the steps for finding and activating your Visualize Standard serial number is easy. Just follow these steps:
