From images to animations, interactive web content, and immersive VR, SOLIDWORKS® Visualize allows you to use your 3D CAD data to create photo-quality content. With SOLIDWORKS Visualize Standard, you’ll quickly and easily produce photo-quality images for taking “photos” of 3D data, cutting costs, and accelerating time-to-market with compelling imagery. A SOLIDWORKS Visualize Standard seat is included with each seat of SOLIDWORKS Professional and Premium on active Subscription. If you need to go deeper with your CAD data, SOLIDWORKS Visualize Professional allows you to also generate photo-quality imagery, but also produce interactive animation, 360-degree spins, VR, and more. SOLIDWORKS Visualize enables you to bring your products to life, easily communicate the most complex design details, and beat your competition to market. But in order to achieve these goals, you first need a computer workstation purpose-built for SOLIDWORKS Visualize.
SOLIDWORKS Visualize has a variety of rendering modes, but for evaluating true, ray-traced real world lighting, materials, and finishes, it’s necessary to use the “accurate” rendering mode. This mode takes advantage of GPU-accelerated rendering and performance can be boosted with multiple GPUs – ideal for real-time design review or accelerated frame rendering. Since licensing is tied to the machine and not the number of GPUs, it makes sense to boost Visualize in a GPU-dense system.
Some users may wish to run SOLIDWORKS Visualize on the same machine they use for CAD design. While we recommend offloading rendering whenever possible, BOXX offers a few models perfectly suited for this workflow. Since SOLIDWORKS is lightly threaded, our overclocked workstations are the fastest in the industry for these tasks. Adding Visualize into the mix means you’ll also want at least one dedicated GPU for rendering and one for your CAD display. Our multi-GPU overclocked workstations are perfect for this scenario.
