SOLIDWORKS Visualize 2022 Highlights

SOLIDWORKS® Visualize  is included with SOLIDWORKS Professional and SOLIDWORKS Premium, or can be purchased as a completely separate application.

  • Match Camera Perspective to Backplate: With the Match Camera tool, you can manipulate a camera by aligning vanishing lines to a backplate image. This allows more precise positioning of a model in front of a backplate.
  • Shadow Catcher Property: You can turn any part object geometry into a shadow catcher object. Shadow catchers show the background through them and display shadows cast from lighting in the scene. For example, you can create a wall and specify it as a shadow catcher.
  • Scenes Tab: Floor Effects parameters on the Scenes tab have been renamed for consistency with the shadow catcher functionality.
  • Animations: Animations are improved in areas such as motion studies, organization, keyframes, and cameras.
  • Render Output Viewer: You can use the SOLIDWORKS Render Output Viewer to manage render jobs and their respective output on a per project basis. You can recall (or re-execute) any previous rendering done in a project, directly from the render Output Viewer.
  • Patterns: The Pattern tool is an evolution of the traditional Formation functionality.
  • Corner Radius: The Corner Radius functionality is enhanced to smooth edges in parts.
  • Cosmetic Threads: For more realistic-looking models, SOLIDWORKS Visualize automatically applies a normal map to models imported with cosmetic threads.
