Understanding the import process into SOLIDWORKS Visualize is essential to working efficiently, and can be controlled by both the import settings and the organization of the original CAD file. Learn the two most common import settings to setup the Visualize project for different workflows; one to make the model quick and easy to work with and the other to allow for live updates and more flexibility with the model grouping. Learn how to best prepare your CAD file for the desired Visualize experience. Understand how to efficiently import models into Visualize by selecting the appropriate Import Settings. Utilize CAD Live-Update for a seamless design process.

This module covers three technical summaries for using SOLIDWORKS MBD. For drafted parts: Create DimXpert Location dimensions between drafted surfaces by suppressing draft or using intersection geometry. For sheet metal: Use a separate configuration for the flat pattern of a sheet metal part. Use reference dimensions to dimension between sheet metal bend lines. For weldment structures: Use cut lists to display dimensions for structural members of weldment structures. Add 3D Notes to the weldment structure and apply weldment symbols.
