    SOLIDWORKS Rendering Challenge: Visualizing Art

    August 13, 2018

    The third leg of the SOLIDWORKS Visualize Contest asked its contestants to create a 360° high-resolution rendering of an interior space. I had already seen a number of Visualize renderings highlighting furniture and architectural spaces, but I wanted to try something a little different– art!

    SOLIDWORKS Visualize Takes Gold in Rendering

    March 16, 2018

    The 2018 Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang have come to an end. I'm not an Olympic Athlete, but I wanted to participate by more than just watching the games from my couch. With the many SOLIDWORKS products I have installed on my machine, I figured there was bound to be something I could create. With SOLIDWORKS 2018, each seat of Professional and Premium comes with a free seat of SOLIDWORKS Visualize Standard, so I decided it was time to explore!

    Top 11 Features in SOLIDWORKS 2018: Stereoscopic VR Rendering in Visualize

    February 14, 2018

    SOLIDWORKS Visualize is famous for its ability to give designers a photo-realistic view at their design animation before ever being finalized and manufactured. And while it is already hugely beneficial to the design community, SOLIDWORKS 2018 out-did itself with the latest update to Stereoscopic Virtual Reality (VR) Rendering.

    Paying Tribute: Rendering a Veterans Memorial in Visualize

    November 10, 2017

    To honor those who have served our United States Armed Forces this Veteran’s Day, I’ve modeled the Anthem Veterans Memorial, located in Arizona, which has a unique feature that is perfect to demonstrate the scene lighting and animation capabilities of SOLIDWORKS Visualize Professional. To do this yourself, read our tutorial and watch the full demonstration in our video!

    Using Configurations in SOLIDWORKS Visualize Professional

    July 31, 2017

    One of my favorite design features inside SOLIDWORKS is configurations. I love the ability to edit and revise properties without affecting the original model. What some people may not know is that you can utilize configurations with SOLIDWORKS Visualize Professional as well.

    Adjusting Appearance Settings in SOLIDWORKS Visualize

    June 14, 2017

    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.
