For those of you who may or may not have seen the SOLIDWORKS Blog post on the updates in Visualize 2017 sp02, I thought I'd make a little video to highlight more specifically what these changes in sp02 are all about. See the link below. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=znyxLFW3En0 Hope you enjoy. Go get yourself sp02 now and start rendering...even faster!

I had a project due rather quickly. And needed to update a part in a product photo. Using Region Render I was able to just render out the part and location needed fast. Wanted to share in case anyone didn't know about this feature yet.

Wow! This fella made loads and loads of his HDR's free, using CC0 licensing. Which means you can basically use them for any purpose. https://hdrihaven.com/ Do the right thing, and donate a bit to his Patreon page so he can keep churning out content that everyone can use. HDRI Haven is creating free, high quality HDRIs for everyone |

In the SW Visualize tutorial, it's suggested not including the decal while importing the 3D model into the Visualize. My question is: how to get the decal back on the 3D model as there is no option to apply decal in Visualize ? SolidworksSolidworks Visualize

Hi Guys, I was searching the forum for IOR and didn't find anything like this, so I thought I'd share it with you all. It's a site with a list of hundreds of materials and their IOR values. Hopefully it's helpful for a few of you. Or, if anyone knows of better lists or sites, please pass them along.

I recently wanted to make sure I was squeezing every ounce of available rendering power out of my system. If you have multiple GPU's you can view their resource percentage in the NVIDIA Control panel and CPU usage in performance. I assume most of you knew this already but wanted to share in case you didn't. SolidworksSolidworks Visualize

Hi Visualize community, Each year I create a Visualize desktop calendar image that can be downloaded and used on your own machines. This year's edition comes to us courtesy of customer AX Tech, created in Visualize by power-user Jacek Koczmierowski. Sized for 4K screens this year! Enjoy!

Hi, it would be nice if it was possible to re-import from another visualize file, instead of from the model. Assuming you import a model from visualize file you also import all appearances made from there so it would be nice to be able to re-import appearances from there. Or maybe make an option to re-import geometry and re-import appearances. SolidworksSolidworks Visualize

I miss: 1. gravity snap, snap to object plane. 2. Align and center camera to object axis so Y axis of the object is right in the middle (important because of perspective view) anything else? SolidworksSolidworks Visualize

Hi, I've seen this picture below and it got me thinking... are volumetric textures a thing in the future, especially something like wood textures. So basically the texture would show appearance the way body is shaped so different faces would match perfectly on the edges. SolidworksSolidworks Visualize

I've seen this video and they mention solidworks... SIGGRAPH 2018 - NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang - Reinventing Computer Graphics - YouTube What are they doing here and what program are they using? Anything related to future products? It seems as if it was updating directly from solidworks SolidworksSolidworks Visualize

Lots of discussion about builds and GPUs lately. Figured I'd start a dedicated thread for folks to talk about and show what they're running Visualize on. SolidworksSolidworks Visualize

Because of the multi-year bug in Visualize, I have started following the recommended "solution" and started turning off "monitor file for changes" when I import Solidworks models. Now, I'm getting the error in the post title. Any suggestions? I'm running Visualize 2019 SP3.

Now we are in Vis2020. Two full versions and 10 Service-Packs later and the queue is still not working correctly---Wow......! Now we can edit MDL Materials and have PBR-Material.That´s really good and an alternative to the antiquated material system. But how to change the mapping type of MDL?

Hello, I am looking for some input on how to make an appearance for a layered material. The material that I am working with is called G-10. I'm just not exactly sure how to approach this problem as I've only done materials which have the same color throughout. Attached is a picture of the type of material that I am working with.

Is this a message to check if my graphics card is compliant? Or has it actually detected my graphics card isn’t compliant? My graphics card was approved until it was recently culled from the approved list
