SOLIDWORKS Visualize has taken renders of SOLIDWORKS designs above and beyond what PhotoView 360 was ever capable of. By tweaking the appearance settings like Tile Value, Roughness and Index of Refraction, it’s much easier to control exactly how materials will appear in the final render. Let’s take a look at an example.

In this blog, we show you how to create beautifully smooth animations in SOLIDWORKS Visualize, giving your designs the precise representation and attention to detail that they deserve. They can rotate as desired in a smooth animation that will showcase all angles of the design.

In my last blog article, I showed how we could adjust the appearances on our rescue spreader to make it look more life-like in our final render. Let’s continue to work on those renders and add some dimension and drama with our camera settings in SOLIDWORKS Visualize.

SOLIDWORKS Visualize is an exciting new way to show off your designs with photo-realistic renders. However, sometimes it can be daunting to get started with all of the import options that Visualize offers. Wouldn’t it be nice if there were an easier way to get that CAD data from SOLIDWORKS into Visualize?

SOLIDWORKS Visualize can show off your designs with photo-realistic renders, even when it comes to rendering transparent liquids. To demonstrate the beauty of such a realistic rendering of liquids, see how we created the perfect margarita glass step-by-step to celebrate Cinco de Mayo.
When working with 3D models in SOLIDWORKS Visualize, there are many ways to control and modify parts. Working with parts can consist of using symmetry, controlling vectors and even using a special feature to split models and parts. In this blog, I want to talk about a particularly useful feature I discovered while playing inside SOLIDWORKS Visualize Professional called "Extract Part".

Designers and engineers already love SOLIDWORKS Simulation for its ability to set up real-world environments. But what if they could take these comprehensive simulation results and blending them with photo renderings? Now, they can.
With new advancements in SOLIDWORKS 2017, users can get the best of both worlds and combine rendering and simulation results. Here’s how:
