Included with SOLIDWORKS Visualize Professional, the integrated Render Queue instantly boosts productivity by allowing you to “stack” up render jobs to be completed at a later time. Use the Render Queue to stay productive during the day, and let the renders complete overnight. Discover how easy it is to send jobs to the integrated Render Queue. Explore the simple interface of the Render Queue. Understand the difference between sending render jobs to your local machine or to a dedicated Visualize Boost machine (network rendering). Available in Visualize Professional.

Learn how to create two types of interactive outputs, VR and Panoramic. Both of these render types create a set of images like an animation, but instead of stitching them into a movie, they are instead stitched together to create an interactive rendering accessible from an HTML link. Understand the important use cases for Visualize’s interactive outputs Learn how to set-up your scene for generating VR & Panoramic outputs. Tell a deeper story with your 3D data with interactive outputs. Available in Visualize Professional.
