I have noticed that when rendering images in SW Viz 2017 with a white background, the renders keep resolving with a light grey background instead. Anyone having a similar issue? I thought maybe it was the ground shadow, but i turned it off and ended up with the same result.

As you've hopefully heard by now, we're about to release new integrated technology to make your Visualize renders finish 10x faster! It's called the AI Denoiser, which uses machine learning and artificial intelligence to anticipate and magically eliminate noise in your scene. What does this mean? You can expect the same photo-quality results10x faster!

Maybe I'm working in too many different 3D applications, but I could have sworn I used to be able to hold down the mouse wheel and rotate around the center of the environment. It rotates around the camera selected and I'd prefer to rotate around the center of the environment. Using SolidWorks CAD as the navigation mode in Options.

I loaded several jobs in the Queue this last week and expected them to be completed. Upon checking this morning apparently they all failed. Is there a place I can view why they failed?

In Fast preview I can see like a ball (spherical) in the view (see photo), and I think it might be from the scene environment, but it appear in every scene when I change it from library.. (it actually kind a disappear from some angles of view, but still appear in other.. ) ,visualize rendering

I just got an Nvidia Quadro P4000. I have all settings to default under 3d settings on the Nvidia control panel. Are there things I should change to get the best performance I can get? I am rendering on hybrid, and my CPU seems to be running at 95-100% and the 3D GPU seems to run between 5-11% I don't know if it's supposed to utilize the GPU more, or if I should even be looking at the task manager for that?

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.

Am I the only person here that wishes the units could be changed in Vis to whatever I want (inches, feet, mm, cm etc)? The ability to enter units in a form I want would also be helpful. Like you can in SW.

I wanted to start a thread dedicated to those of us that make renderings, and then make the actual product we rendered. I'll start with an anniversary present I made for my 10 year wedding anniversary last year. I tried modeling some different things and rendered them to get an idea if it would look like that in the end. With the renderings I was able to get some suggestions for tweaks and ideas for the project.

Late yesterday I started to render a 42 second animation in Visualize 2018 Professional. I am using Fast render (with 200 passes?) and 30 fps. I use Visualize Queue. The animation movement was imported from SW2018.

Animation Question I had a pretty simple animation project show up at the office and I thought it would be a good chance to use Visualize. Right off the bat however I'm running into an issue and thought I'd ask here about it.

I am new to Visualize 2017 (from photoview 360) and I am trying to render a decal that gets baked onto a borosilicate glass cylinder. It seems that visualize only uses planar mapping, whereas in SolidWorks I can use cylindrical mapping. This causes my decal to show through the other surfaces of the glassware. I can limit the decal depth to limit it, it still shows through the other side.

Either I'm doing something wrong, or the function assign appearance is not working. I have some models that engineers created and they assigned some appearances inside SolidWorks. I want to replace their appearances with some I created. I control-c (copy) click on my appearance, then right click on appearance that I want to assign my appearance to.

this was a topic from the SOLIDWORKS World Presentation that myself andAlen Topicpresented this year and it received a fair amount of interest so I turned it into a blog with a quick video. It allows for the use of motion studies to easily apply things like Gravity to our assemblies and also be able to import the result into Visualize, INCLUDING Visualize standard.
