Article by Vipanjot Kaur, CSWP updated May 5, 2021


When a 3D model is imported into SOLIDWORKS Visualize, the resolution that we see in a preview within the viewport is the resolution of the image that is rendered as an output.

This resolution can be changed as required, following the steps below:

  1. Import the 3D model into SOLIDWORKS Visualize
Resolution: 480X270

Resolution: 480X270

  1. Now Go to Tools drop-down Menu > Select Options OR click Ctrl+K on the keyboard to access the Options.
  2. This will launch the Options dialog box. On the 3D Viewport page scroll to the bottom.
