‘Easy Mode’ wizard to create renderings with SOLIDWORKS Visualize

If you’ve opened SOLIDWORKS Visualize before, you may have been lost in the many tabs and toolbars which are present in the default view. The great news is that by simply hitting the ‘space bar’, you can quickly learn how to use Visualize, and what each of the toolbars does.

 

Activating SOLIDWORKS Visualize Easy Mode
Pressing the ‘space bar’ activates SOLIDWORKS Visualize Easy Mode which cleans up the toolbars and places a simple step by step guide at the bottom of the window. This five-step guide makes it really easy to generate a high-quality rendering in a matter of minutes!

PMI in 3D for Manufacturing Communication Solution

SOLIDWORKS MBD(Model Based Definition) lets you create models without the need for drawings giving you an integrated manufacturing solution for the SOLIDWORKS software.

SOLIDWORKS MBD helps companies define, organize, and publish 3D product and manufacturing information (PMI), including 3D model data in industry standard file formats.

  • SOLIDWORKS MBD offers 3D PMI definition capabilities using DimXpert and reference dimensions.
  • You can use SOLIDWORKS technologies such as annotation views, dynamic viewing of annotation planes and 3D views to organize 3D PMI in a structured, easy-to-locate fashion.
  • Besides the native SOLIDWORKS file formats, SOLIDWORKS MBD creates output files such as 3D PDF and eDrawings.

 

 

SOLIDWORKS MBD guides the manufacturing process directly in 3D:

  • By avoiding the unnecessary and costly revision of 2D drawings, SOLIDWORKS MBD streamlines production, cuts cycle time, and improves communication with the supply chain.
  • By using intuitive 3D interaction and rich metadata properties that reduce manufacturing errors.
  • By providing help to meet industry standards such as MIL-STD-31000 Rev A and ASME 14.41, which gives a competitive advantage in winning contracts.

 

The SOLIDWORKS MBD add-in:

  • Operates within the SOLIDWORKS environment with its own Command Manager.
  • Supports all native SOLIDWORKS 3D part and assembly data, such as configurations, constraints, and PMI.

Customized 3D output in PDF:

  • When you publish a 3D PDF, you get the option to choose a template & select which views to output.
  • You can customize a template by including features such as a background, text blocks, and images by selecting 3D PDF Template Editor in Solidworks Command Manager.
