By utilizing some techniques like the Visualize add-in for SOLIDWORKS, you can get a fast and great looking render in no time. In the video below, we will show you how to get a SOLIDWORKS model of a Lightsaber into Visualize while taking advantage of some camera features, and even the new area lights capabilities in SOLIDWORKS Visualize Professional 2018.

Benefits of SOLIDWORKS Visualize

SOLIDWORKS® Visualize (formerly known as Bunkspeed) is a product which provides a suite of standalone software tools that combine industry-leading rendering capabilities with design-oriented features and workflows that enable easy and fast creation of visual content for designers, engineers, marketing, and other content creators. SOLIDWORKS Visualize Standard is included with SOLIDWORKS Professional and Premium bundles.

Who can benefit from SOLIDWORKS Visualize?

SOLIDWORKS Visualize has been created for anyone who needs to create professional photo-quality, images, animations, and other 3D content in the fastest and easiest way possible. SOLIDWORKS Visualize is hardware-agnostic, which means designers, engineers, and content creators who use SOLIDWORKS or other CAD creation tools (such as Rhino®, Autodesk® Alias®, 3ds Max®) for product, architectural, yacht, mechanical, and other designs can produce an enhanced 3D decision making experience in a fast, easy, and fun way.
