Applying Knurling Operation for Cylindrical Components

SolidWorks gives the user with good functionality on knurling operation for their specific applications. When applying these kind of features, we need not specify it really on the model but apply it for virtual purposes. For the CAD representation, this appearance can be applied on a part & assembly.
Applying Knurling to the model:
1. Download High Quality Images Like .jpeg, .png, .bmp, .tiff
2. Adding file location to the design library appearances tabs
3. Drag & Drop in the virtual graphics area by selecting the reference face
4. By pressing the Alt key, auto enabling of scale ratio is done

1. Decreasing the no. of features involved in doing the knurling
2. Better visualization with 3D graphics area on the components
3. Cutting down the rebuild time for realistic views
