The Direct Benefits of SOLIDWORKS Visualize Professional

Ever wonder what the additional features are in SOLIDWORKS Visualize Professional? Do you need to queue up render jobs to be more productive during work hours, or want to animate an exploded view to show the inner workings of your innovative engineering or design solution? How about creating multiple colorways or design variations in seconds, then render them out all at once, or delivering interactive web content to your customers to impress them so much they hand over their wallets? Well, you’ve landed at the right blog post.

This month’s Visualize blog post is all about SOLIDWORKS Visualize Professional. The more advanced features in Visualize Professional enable you to quickly and easily create photo-quality imagery, animations, exploded views, camera flys, 360 spins, interactive web experiences and other 3D content in a snap.

Watch the how-to video below to see the direct benefits from Visualize Professional.



Would your organization and customers benefit from photo-quality animations of your products instead of just still images? SOLIDWORKS Visualize Professional allows you to tell a deeper story with your CAD data, resulting in a deeper connection with your target audience…be it your design/engineering manager, potential customer or industry trade show. While there’s more upgraded features than I can list in a blog post, here’s my top five favorite features in Visualize Professional:

(1)    Interactive outputs of Virtual Reality (VR) & Panoramic

(2)    Configurations

(3)    Full Animation Suite

(4)    Custom Camera Filters

(5)    Render Queue

(6)    ***New for 2017, Visualize Boost (distributed Network rendering)
