SOLIDWORKS Composer Quick Start Guide #7: High Resolution Images

Hello and welcome to the seventh post in a new SOLIDWORKS Composer tutorial series called the SOLIDWORKS Composer Quick Start Guide! This guide is intended to orient new users in SOLIDWORKS Composer and walk them though the basic features of the software. In this post, we’re going to walk through the High Resolution Image Workshop and how it can be used to create great-looking photos of your assemblies.

Once you’re in the High Resolution Image Workshop, creating a detailed image of your assembly is simple. Creating an image is just a click away, but you have a significant degree of flexibility in choosing how your image ends up looking. You can modify the resolution of the created image, the desired file size, printer DPI, and more. Anti-aliasing and alpha channel effects are available as well. The exact anti-aliasing techniques used can be adjusted in the workshop as needed. This workshop isn’t just for the creation of JPGs; it is also capable of creating detailed views that remain in the viewport, much like the “Create 2D Image” tool used by the digger. An advanced use case of the High Resolution Image workshop is to create high quality animations by getting multiple high quality images based on desired quality needs.

That’s all for another episode of the SOLIDWORKS Composer Quick Start Guide.
