Learning Type:
Animations provide an extra visual representation of how an assembly can be put together, taken apart, and shows the order in which parts are added. Animations compliment exploded views incredibly well and help manufacturers and assemblers understand exactly how the components come together. Animations also serve as a great marketing tool, as they can show off the complexities of the design as well as how refined the final product is. In this lesson, an Animation will be created in SOLIDWORKS Composer by exploding additional components in this assembly.

Configurations enable you to compare several different design directions, all within a single Visualize project. This lesson examines how to easily create configurations of varying appearances, camera settings, scenes, or part visibility to establish several design directions to make choosing the final solution much easier. Create multiple configurations for varying design directions. Use the Base Configuration to make changes to all existing Configurations. Render all configurations with a single button click. Available in Visualize Professional.

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.
