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.

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.
