When significant structural deformations, high stresses or complex contacts exist in applications, limitations of the static linear study are likely going to be reached. In such situations nonlinear computational algorithms need to be utilized. In this course, you will learn about the basic types of nonlinearities, and how to approach their solutions.

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.

Tell a deeper story with your CAD data and discover how easy it is to create camera animations within SOLIDWORKS Visualize. This lesson focuses on how to create and manipulate keyframes using our unique Animation Ribbon, a 3D representation for how your camera moves throughout your scene. Create a simple camera flyby with Auto-Keyframing enabled. Adjust the speed of the animation and location of keyframes by directly manipulating the Animation Ribbon. Utilize two viewports to get as much control as possible over the final animation path. Available in Visualize Professional.

The easiest way to describe your model or design is with a 360 degree spin, describing much more than a single still image. This lesson will show you how to easily create 360 degree spins with the click of a single button, and highlights advanced features like Motion Blur to further blur the line of ‘real or rendered.’ Add a Realtime Turntable to your project and then render Turntables with a single click. Introduce one-click camera rotations for 360 degree spins around your model. Learn how to use Rotation Animations for rotating parts like wheels, propellers, gears, etc. Discover the many benefits of in-camera Motion Blur to add that extra sense of realism to your images and animations. Available in Visualize Professional.

More than just still images, SOLIDWORKS Visualize has the capability to output videos of animations. Master the settings of the Animation Timeline to create animations for parts, models, cameras, appearances and more. Explore the Animation Timeline and its options. Understand how to add and manipulate keyframes in a couple different ways. Learn the Output Tools options to create videos from your Visualize animations. Available in Visualize Professional.
