I have an assembly imported in Visualize using the automatic grouping. Let's say I have a few components using the same apperance. If I wan't to change that apperance I could, in Visualize 2017, copy the the desired apperance and then right click on the apperance I want to be changed and select "assign apperance. ..". It worked like a charm!

visualize textures? I noticed that I need to change all textures in SW before importing to visualize, because Visualze joins similar textures to one to increase performance. Importing with all separate parts the performance of a large assembly drops significantly in visualize - making it totally unusable (below 0,5 fps when rotating the whole assembly).

Radial brushed appearance. Anisotropic Is there a way to get this kind of appearance in Visualize and the highlights behave realistically in animation.

SOLIDWORKS Visualize 2018 SP0 is available now!LOADS of new features, improvements and of course pesky bugs squashed! You can't hear me, but I'm clapping right now for the Visualize R&D and QA teams for building the best Visualize yet.

I was just experimenting with the area lights present in Solidworks Visualize 2018, as a way to add highlights in reflections without having to change the HDRI environment. However, upon outputting an Accurate render, I noticed that the area lights are completely absent in the reflections. When I output the same file as a Fast render, they are present. But for my purposes I am going to need to use the Accurate render mode.

I've been looking all over the internet for several months now, looking for bar/pub interior HDR environments. I've looked in most, if not all of the free areas that have been posted up here and other places, but have yet to find a suitable file. Anyone have any good leads?

Under the "Solidworks Visualize Que" - "Rendering" what does the button "Save Now" indicate and actually do? There is nothing descriptive in the manual. The assumption is that it saves an image file of the rendering at that point in time, like saving a screen shot of the preview in Visualize.

Right now I am rendering our products out and hand drawing in hoses. Any suggestions how to draw "natural" hoses in Solidworks or Visualize? In SolidWorks you could use a sweep feature for the hose/cable runs.

Texture mapping multiple parts I've been using Visualize for a few months now and one thing is really bugging me. When I apply a appearance to multiple parts and go to edit the texture mapping it prompts "Select a single part to edit its texture mapping.

Good morning and hopefully those of you I saw at SOLIDWORKS World have recovered by now for those that were there or watched the live stream you may have seen the reveal of the De-noiser for visualize that uses AI to dramatically reduce the time it takes to rez up renders inside the Visualize preview window. Naturally I sprinted to the Nvidia booth after the general session and had a go with it and it is amazing (especially on dual GP100's).

Yes I know Quadro cards are the "officially supported" cards for SolidWorks and Visualize, and I have a P5000 in my #1 workstation. I want to upgrade another workstation and just thought I would ask for some opinions between the 1080 ti and P4000. The specs on the 1080 ti blow the P4000 out of the water on paper, and they can be gotten for about the same price.

I'm rendering an animation using Solidworks Visualize 2017 on my notebook (Windows) and would like to turn off the screen to save energy. Is there a way without affect the efficiency? I've already tried to turn off the screen but it automatically comes back 1 sec later.

I am currently having some trouble with various renderpasses in my rendering process. I have a model that has a large glass sphere in it with other objects behind it. These objects however do not fill the entire sphere, and I want the rest of the sphere to be transparant in the output (Alpha + PNG). Now, for the Beauty pass, this works perfectly fine.

I noticed that when rendering anything, the shadow stretches pretty far. I would love to be able to slide a toggle to limit the fall-off perimeter from the model. Is this possible or already a thing?

Our annual eventSOLIDWORKS World 2018is just around the corner! Make sure to login and build your own custom agenda using that link, and add to your calendar for reminders. I thought it would be smart to list all the Visualize-specific sessions and live demos, to make sure you don't miss out on anything. There's so much to see and experience!

Auto Paint Auto Paint is a feature in Visualize that doesn't seem to receive much attention but could be very useful for some users. It's something Ron and I are touching on during our SWW presentation.

Hi Everyone and a belated happy new year. I am stretching my new setup by making it do a decent sized render but am experiencing some really strange issues shown in the attached screen grab of my task manager. I chose the render as GPU (graphics card) only but the task manager shows only 1% of usage on the GPU and maxing out at 99, 95% on the CPU.
