Texture maps are great tools for adding extra realism to appearances. This lesson debunks the mystery of texture maps, shows how to precisely control them, and enables anyone to become a master of textures. Become comfortable with the four types of texture mapping available in Visualize: Color, Alpha, Specular, and Bump. Add texture maps and learn how to manipulate them using several texture mapping modes. Add free professional pre-textured appearances to your own Visualize projects by downloading them from the Visualize Cloud Library, integrated within the interface.

The Digger tool is a patented technology in SOLIDWORKS Composer that allows you to zoom into a part, create detail views and fade away actors in order to see internal components or mechanisms. Using the Digger tool allows users to easily create detail views of interior components of an assembly without having to manually hide actors in the assembly. Additionally, this tool helps give a better understanding of actors and assemblies with its ability to zoom into any specific portion of a part or assembly. In this lesson, you'll see how the Digger tool can be used to create multiple detail views of both the exterior and some interior areas of an assembly.

Since vector graphics scale without distorting the image, they are very useful when trying to insert images into other documents, such as a PDF or a Word doc. Vector images also allow for a clean professional look for marketing purposes. In this lesson, you'll see detail views added to this exploded view and create a vector image of both of them.

It is common practice to update parts and assemblies, but in a SOLIDWORKS Composer file, it is difficult to make substantial design changes since it is not a native SOLIDWORKS CAD software. However, it is simple to update SOLIDWORKS Composer actors and assemblies. All you have to do is select the components, and then choose “Update”. This relieves the headache of needing to update everything externally in SOLIDWORKS. In this lesson, individual actors as well as the whole assembly will be updated to show the updating capabilities of SOLIDWORKS Composer.
