How to Get Realistic Output in Less Time - SOLIDWORKS Visualize

The fastest and easiest way to create Realistic Photo Content with time-saving features.

          To improve concepts that are viewed throughout the design, development and marketing phases. SOLIDWORKS visualize helps the user to select, validate, improve and sell the best and most robust design concept before committing expensive engineering, prototyping, and marketing re-source to the projects. It helps to reduce errors and ensures product get to the market faster, improving engineering design and sales review, helps to make more educated final decision which in turns drastically reduce cost and reduce the number of physical prototype that helps to achieve much more efficiently delivering the rendered content to marketing to promote new products via online or as a presentation content which allows added time saving for more design results in overall better final product.

  • Without SOLIDWORKS Visualize the resultant will be like manufacturing the user end product which consumes series of time in its process.
  • With SOLIDWORKS Visualize you can streamline this series of the process into a parallel process which reduces the time by forty percentage.
Hybrid Render Mode

SOLIDWORKS Visualize can make use of both GPU and CPU are simultaneously known as a hybrid mode in a single machine, which dramatically improves the performance of rendering time. Which allows a budget-friendly workstation to generate content in a faster manner.

Intuitive User Interface

Easy Mode Interface - An Simplified User Interface with five-button which allows non CAD users in less time to create the photo content.

Cad Live-Update

Now we can re-import models in our project, allows us to reduce the time taken for rework which makes the user change the parts that have already change in the 3D cad model

Artificial Intelligence Denoiser

With AI Denoiser we can improve the rendering time by ten times allows us to create the photorealistic content, interactive animation, and 360-degree spins, The output of 500 passes can be achieved by only using 50passes which is time effective.

Replace Wires With Equipotential In SOLIDWORKS Electrical

Replacing Wires with Equipotential
Existing wires can be replaced with wires of a different style selected from the Wire Style

Propagation to Equipotential

All wires connected directly to the selected wire or wires will be replaced with Proper
Equipotential properties.

The Wire Style manger (Figure 1) shows the wires with different style.

(Figure1. Wire style manager)

In the below Power circuit, the default Power wires (N L1 L2 L3) are replaced with the
custom power wire (Power_Phase 1) created in the Wire style manager.

(Figure2. Wires with Default Wire style manager)

Select the wires to be replaced and click “Propagation to Equipotential” under Replacement
range in Replace wire Style shown below (Figure 3)

(Figure3. Replacement range with Propagation to Equipotential)

The above-selected default Power wires (N L1 L2 L3) are replaced with new Power wire
(Power_Phase 1) with proper propagation to Equipotential (Figure 4)

This type of wire replacement will make your design faster and nullify the manual errors.

Do More than Just Visualize with Assembly Visualization

Ever since its introduction in SOLIDWORKS 2010, Assembly Visualization has been a excellent tool to display components in an assembly based on different criteria using colors.

Assembly Visualization can be used as an interactive BOM in which you can see file name, quantity, mass, material, volume, density etc.,

²Add colors to visualize the model property values.

²You can add new columns to show other properties of the model.

Lets just add a new column to link SW-Material


²You can sort the assembly visualization based on the properties in different columns.

²Another great option available inside Assembly Visualization is we can directly apply materials to parts.

²Use the Rollback bar to show only necessary components in Assembly Visualization
²Other Tree options

²Starting from SOLIDWORKS 2018, you can directly access Performance Analysis option inside Assembly Visualization.

And sort based on Graphics Triangle, Open time, rebuild time.

²Another great option is that you can save this style. Instead of adding/editing the new column, you can load this style for future display of Assembly Visualization

²You can also save this as Excel, Text or PDF and publish this a Bill of Materials as Top-level, Parts only or Indented.

  With Assembly Visualization you can evaluate you assembly performance and sort by component properties and more.
