Before SOLIDWORKS 2016 it was only possible to add a watermark to a drawing. But SOLIDWORKS 2016 introduced new functionality that makes it possible to add a watermark to your Part and Assembly documents. You have the option to display the watermark on top of the model or behind it, with the ability to adjust the transparency.
