SOLIDWORKS® Visualize is “The Camera” that enables users of SOLIDWORKS and other CAD data programs to create, communicate, and collaborate with high-quality visual, emotional content to drive innovation, design decisions, and business solutions.
What is SOLIDWORKS Visualize?
SOLIDWORKS Visualize (formerly known as Bunkspeed) provides a suite of standalone software tools that combine industry-leading rendering capabilities with visual design-oriented features and workflows that enable easy and fast creation of visual content that communicates a design’s vision, passion, and emotion.
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.
SOLIDWORKS VISUALIZE BRINGS YOUR PRODUCTS TO LIFE
Now you can create convincing, lifelike movies and images to use for product comparisons, print and web content, design reviews, or even interactive experiences. You can show your product in multiple visual configurations with different scenes, lighting, and artistic filters. SOLIDWORKS Visualize accurately simulates real-world lighting and advanced materials, while scaling rendering performance to meet the highest demands. Easily add movement, create 360-degree spins, or animate cameras, materials, models, or even the sun. Changes are displayed in real time for maximum flexibility and speed. Because SOLIDWORKS Visualize is connected directly with SOLIDWORKS, you can automatically update your models using the “Live CAD Update” feature for a truly seamless workflow that provides the flexibility you need to work dynamically.
