Creating 3D Textures in SOLIDWORKS 2019

Wouldn’t it be nice to give your model a sense of depth by adding 3D textures, maybe a surface with seemingly random bumps to make the part look more organic, or applying a random pattern full of different shapes and elevations that would seem impossible to model. Now your can with the new 3D Texture…
