Re: Visualize rendered content

Hi Rey,

A couple users have found some great websites to add 'grunge' or weak marks, imperfections, scratches, etc via texture maps to push the photorealism even more. It's mostly a Bump map with matching Specular and Alpha maps, to randomly reduce the reflections, making a metal part look worn in places. Stephan Tobias uses this exact workflow to produce his amazing results. He are a couple websites to search for these texture maps:

Re: Visualize rendered content

WHOA! Super gritty, Stephan. Love it. The ripple texture on the ground from the rain drops was genius. Did you create that yourself or find it online? Makes me feel like i'm actually out in the rain taking a photograph!

 

Also, for the glass with the fingerprints and water drops...are you using a Multi-Layer appearance to achieve this awesome result?

Are you going to post any content from SW world for those of us that couldn't make it there this year?

By: Barry Shapiro  Tue, 14 Feb 2017 19:32:30 GMT
Re: Visualize rendered content

Stephan, that image of the wheel in the rain.  Looks like there's actually rain drops on the lens of the camera.  That's a great touch!  Never seen that effect in a render before.  Awesome work

Re: Visualize rendered content

Many thanks Chris, I saw this effect as I try to make a picture of my car with my camera while raining. After this I create this effect in GIMP for the post processing.

Great image, Peter. The lighting here is very believable! The Depth of Field is a nice touch as well.

What did you use to create the low, bright light source? Was it a Spot light? Well done.

Re: Visualize rendered content

SUPER cool image, Jacek! That added fingerprint texture is amazing; makes it look like a photo. What texture map was used to achieve this overlay texture effect? Was it Specular or Bump?

By: Brian Hillner  Mon, 27 Mar 2017 14:54:51 GMT
Re: Visualize rendered content

Hi Richie,

 

Thanks for sharing your image.

 

Uncheck the 'Solid' checkbox for that Glass appearance. This is because the when 'Solid' is enabled, it uses the HDR (environment) to calculate the refractions within the glass. With 'Solid' unchecked, then it doesn't have to calculate the inner refractions, so the part will show through to the purple backplate.

Re: Visualize rendered content

Hello I'm now trying for thr first time visualize. Can anyone help me with the settings in order to get a very good result?

what about the target of the render? quality or time?

By: Mattia Casumaro  Fri, 31 Mar 2017 10:49:55 GMT
Re: Visualize rendered content

Hi Mattia,

what do you mean with very good result?   If you ask about output options, for most of my renders I use settings like this

On my laptop with Quadro K3100M, with that settings, render time is about 3 min.

 

If you use in your project some emissive materials or additional ligths, then I always recommend to increase render passes up to 1000.

Re: Visualize rendered content

Visualize definitely helps for product demonstration with customers. And this community is fantastic in helping with the learning curve... which isn't very steep. Great job to everyone at Solidworks Visualize for creating an intuitive product. Can't wait to see where you all take this in the next couple years. Is there a place for submitting suggestions for UI design and development?

Re: Visualize rendered content

This gallery is extremely useful!

Having an extensive background in various photographic techniques and now working with Visualize, I've come to notice a few things:

  • I now see renders everywhere! Billboards, magazines, brochures, and television. The fact that they are so obvious means, to me at least, that they often lack that one detail that ultimately gives them away: a misplaced shadow, being "too" clean, etc.
  • The "Uncanny Valley" exists as much with renders of objects as it does with animating VR humans. I notice this most with poor surface mapping. As a noob, my own renders suffered from being too smooth and clean, ultimately looking fake. Ironically, now that I've learned to perfect my surfaces, I've outgrown my graphics card by 2 orders of magnitude, almost overnight.
  • Our real vision of objects is now informed by the limitations of old camera technology. Renders of close-ups and macros of small parts and jewelry feature very shallow depth-of-field....but, why!? It's not how we see but how an old 35mm camera "sees". Why should modern, tech-intensive renders have shallow DOF? Imagine if modern CDs featured the clicks and scratches of old analog records!

 

....anyway, that's just my $0.02 worth. Some really excellent work in this gallery, BTW.

Re: Visualize rendered content

Super interesting project you're working on, Marc! I want one of those face scans for myself

Look forward to seeing more Visualize content.

As others on this thread can attest to, I'm a sucker for Depth of Field on close-up shots. Try using that feature in the Cameras Tab to add even more photo-realism.

By: Brian Hillner  Wed, 03 May 2017 19:56:06 GMT
Re: Visualize rendered content

Hi Chris,

 

Thanks for the compliments and I'm glad you see the benefits of using Visualize.

For the UI requests/enhancements, I would do 2 things:

1) I started a new thread on the Visualize forum, where everyone can post their UI requests/enhancements. Please post your ideas here to get the party started in the right direction

2) Maybe submit an Enhancement Request (ER) through your SW Customer Portal link. That will get captured and prioritized with all other feature reqeusts.

 

Your custom lift is looking awesome...that diamond plate texture is quite convincing. Is that modeled into the geometry, or a bump map? The close-up image with the scratches is really nice. Is that a Multi-Layer appearance?

By: Brian Hillner  Wed, 03 May 2017 21:05:17 GMT
Re: Visualize rendered content

Nicely done, Andreas!! Very cool to see your crane spreader in an action shot...massive tires!

Your subtle textures and and chosen HDR pack the perfect 1-2 punch.

That yellow one is may fav! Looks like I could reach out and touch all those wires.

 

I'd love to see an animation of the close-up of those lights blinking, with a subtle camera pan of course

By: Brian Hillner  Wed, 03 May 2017 21:10:19 GMT
Re: Visualize rendered content

Well said, Rich!

I'm always finding myself looking at magazine and print ads completely different.

The other thing my crazy mind does, is it sees objects in the real world and tries to decipher how I would go about texture mapping them in Visualize. I can't seem to turn that one off

Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us!

Re: Visualize rendered content

Thank you Brian Hillner for posting the suggestion links. I will add my $0.02.

 

The Diamond plate is simply a bump map on a smooth metal surface. Visualize is beyond my original expectations. I am still experimenting with multi-layers. When I get some photo realistic renders done I will post them up. I have been also experimenting with adding customs car wraps for mock-ups. Here is a White Camo Mustang on a portable car lift teaser. Still working on making it look more realistic. When completed I will post finals. I also started pulling backplates from trending Instagram posts and adding the model over the top then add DOF to match and play with the camera settings.

 

 

Here are my settings on the bump map on previous post. To make it convincing I used a different material on every face and scaled to match sizes.

That's one of my all-time favorite workflows! Also a great way to learn Visualize super-fast and create life-like results...since the image your using as a backplate is awesome to begin with. Simple Google searches help as well.

 

Llike this one for great road car photography to place your car model over the one in the photo.

Or this one for warehouse interiors for heavy machinery or robots.

 

Thanks for the explanation for the diamond plate bump map texture. Very smart to put the little scratches on the same bump map to make it even easier in Visualize.

 

Can't wait to see your new creations!

Working on new product renders. Would love some feedback. Any suggestions on different techniques or lighting or coloring? The only post work done with image is adding lens flare, some subtle dirt to both cars, and brightened overall image.

Re: Visualize rendered content

Hi Matt [everyone, Chris = Matt so let's call him by his real name ]

 

Thanks for posting your newest creation for feedback. Looks awesome so far. While the lighting on the tops of the cars is dynamic, the sides could use some more value shift. I've always liked the HDR you used, but just in case try a few other HDRs. Like the 'warehouse,' 'classic photo studio' (might be too dark), or even the 'auto photo studio.' Rotate the HDR to see if you find anything you like. If not, then what you have would definitely work.

 

One other thing...maybe keep everything the same but render it out without the orthographic view? Curious to see what that would look like.

 

Thanks for sharing!

Bill,

I used the image from textures.com as a color map. Using this image you can easily create specular and bump maps, which are necessary to create realistic material. Use this site to do it.

Below you can find my settings used with this material. Play with tile, brigthness and bump strength

Hi Matt,

Your car lift looks great! Looks better with some perspective (rather than orthographic) for sure.

Are there 'physical flakes' in the Mustang paint?

The composition on the jump starter is well done. The texturing on the black plastic is very believable.

Re: Visualize rendered content

Nicely done! Very smooth camera movements. And you're using the Formation Tool (Visualize Pro only).

 

I see you also discovered you can animate/keyframe the HDR as well! This can add a cool lighting effect to your animations and camera flys. You can also apply this same workflow to emissive planes, moving them across your model for some really dynamic lighting to pair with camera fly.

 

Your jet engine animation i found on your YouTube channel is also impressive. The opacity animation feature is very powerful to help explain complex inner components.

By: Brian Hillner  Tue, 30 May 2017 13:36:58 GMT

Thanks Brian Hillner I used the physical flakes as well as a custom noise map I made in photoshop. The plastic models came out great. It is so easy setting these up and getting them rendered off for ad purposes.

Hi Jacek,

GREAT representations of furniture! I do renders of room environments with office furniture and am striving to get more and more realistic. Are the seams on your furniture built into your model geometry? If not can you elaborate on how you achieve them realistically? Would love feedback or tips from you if you have the time.I am in the early stages of learning this type of software and appreciate any insights you can provide.

Thanks,

Re: Visualize rendered content

That sofa looks fantastic! I assume it was modeled in SolidWorks? Are the seams generated in the model, or texture? How do you achieve the wrinkles and making the fabric appear soft, not rigid? Thanks!

By: Rey Alonso  Thu, 15 Jun 2017 20:35:48 GMT
Re: Visualize rendered content

Thank you Rey! As I mentioned, the model comes from cgtrader.com. I guess it has been modeled in 3ds Max. The only way to make fabric which looks soft not rigid is to use freefrom modeling. If you want to use SOLIDWORKS to do it please try Power Surfacing for SolidWorks® .

By: Jacek Koczmierowski  Fri, 16 Jun 2017 15:51:41 GMT
Re: Visualize rendered content

Hi Gina,

really appreciate your comment! Thank you

Seams are modeled into geometry - I just downloaded the model from cgtrader.com. You can find there a lot of cool stuff like this for free! Please bear in mind that in many of my renders I use models which havn't been modeled in SOLIDWORKS.

If you want to get realistic renders pay attention to the model. It is the foundation of successful renders, especially if we're talking about furniture. To achieve a realistic look please also use UV mapping for texture mapping. Use it only with models from software like Rhino, 3dsMax, Blender etc. Unfortunately any software like SOLIDWORKS, Inverntor or Creo can't produce geometry where UV mapping is usable.

If you want to understand how to achieve photorealism watch this video Photorealism Explained - YouTube

 

Thanks once again!

Thank you so much for the tips Jacek. I thought the realism has to come from models first as it is the foundation of all renders. I have been working with our engineers for more realistic models and I appreciate your insight in helping me achieve a greater degree of realism. I strive to do it within the rendering program and not in the post-processing in Photoshop although some is necessary. Thank you for your input. I look forward to seeing more from you.

Milling machine finish. The texture is produced in Photoshop and applied in different orientations depending on the surface. Adjusting the Bump Strength changes the finish from one produced in high school shop class to something made on a CNC mill in a professional machine shop.

Creating the texture was surprisingly difficult despite being simple in principle: the left side of the texture must precisely match the right side, lest the texture end up looking like "tile".

Re: Visualize rendered content

Well done, Jacek. Your textures and the lighting is spot-on. Would look great in a magazine ad!

Welcome to the Visualize Community, Alex

The side view in Venice Beach is my fav. The subtle Bloom Filter (as seen over the front wheel) is perfect! I really do like that HDR.

I can see you used the 'Physical Flakes' option in the Metallic Paint...nice touch!

Cool retro VW design;are you going to physically build it??

Keep the renders comin'

Re: Visualize rendered content

Whoa Rich, that's one heck of a milling texture! You definitely succeeded with making it seamless and appear super real.

I'm glad you found the Bump Strength slider helpful to achieve the desired effect.

The second image with the DoF is awesome!

All these little textures help push the image from 'just another render' to 'holy crap, that's a photo'

Re: Visualize rendered content

These are few projects I completed in SolidWorks Visualize on my personal time. My rendering skills are not quite where I want them to be, but I am slowly progressing. Please your feedback and recommendations will be appreciated.  iPhone 6 CAD Rendered In SolidWorks Visualization.jpgRed BMX Bicycle.jpgNail Polish.jpgWine 3.jpgSharpie 3.jpgBranch Connection.jpgGate Valve_Camera_VR 3.jpgConfiguration_OFFSET BEARING.jpgThredolet 2.jpg

Re: Visualize rendered content

I love Photoview and it is very powerful... but finally after taking a look at the pictures of Visualize in this forum I also had  to start with it and I'm just impressed :-)

 

Here is my first picture from first day in Visualize...

Re: Visualize rendered content

Hi Azeez,

 

Thanks for uploading your Visualize content here! Your YouTube videos are super helpful, and I recommend watching them for anyone new to Visualize. Most of them show also how to build the model in SW CAD first!

 

You have a good eye for composition already, so nothing to improve there. And looks like you are getting into custom texture mapping as well already. You also are already using Decals and creating your own graphics, which is very helpful to understnad when trying to create very life-like images.

 

I would tackle creating animations in Visualize Pro next. This could be part.model animations, 360 spins, transparency animations, exploded views, camera animations, etc.

 

Thanks and look forward to seeing much more of your work!

 

Brian

Re: Visualize rendered content

Hi Baris,

That's probably my favorite 'hidden' feature in Visualize Pro. Thanks for sharing

 

It's only available as an option when you have more than one model selected in your Model Tree. You can easily click on your model, in this case the 1969 Camaro, and then Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V several times to duplicate the model on top of itself. Then you will see the Formation Tool options in the Models Tab.

 

Start by clicking the dropdown to select the formation type. Then you can adjust the orientation and spacing.

 

A great Visualize Pro feature to show off multiple color variations of the same product!

Re: Visualize rendered content

Hi Kevin,

 

Welcome to the Visualize Community!

The chosen HDR and also subtle Depth of Field really help push this towards mistaking it for an actual photo!

Look forward to more examples from you.

 

What's the most compelling is that you were able to create that caliber of image from only using Visualize for 1 day. Very impressive and great inspiration for anyone interested in trying Visualize!

 

Brian

Re: Visualize rendered content

Wow, this is awesome. I work in a machine shop and I have been looking to render machined surfaces. Is the bitmap file black and white? Did you just create a bunch of circles with varying thicknesses?

By: Jeremy Grigsby  Wed, 19 Jul 2017 10:25:37 GMT
Re: Visualize rendered content

Jeremy, the bitmap is done in greyscale using Photoshop to bend rendered fibers (in filters), and repeating the pattern:

 

Milling Marks 04.jpg

The trick is really getting the head to match the tail so that when the entire tile is repeated, end to end, the match is seamless. At some point I'll try to create a normal map of this texture so that bump strength can be correctly realized.

Re: Visualize rendered content

Thanks so much for the bitmap. I had no idea how much detail was there

Re: Visualize rendered content

Thanks for sharing with the Visualize Community, Rich!

It's this sort of camaraderie that makes our Visualize Community like nothing else out there.

 

Thanks!
