Rendering with SOLIDWORKS: What is SOLIDWORKS Visualize?

Monday September 4, 2023 at 8:00am

In the dynamic world of engineering and design, effective communication of concepts and ideas is paramount.

Whether it's presenting intricate product designs to colleagues, engaging potential clients with compelling visuals, or impressing your boss with stunning renders, the right visualisation tools can make all the difference.

This is where SOLIDWORKS Visualize steps in – a powerful rendering and visualisation software that empowers designers, engineers, and content creators to transform their CAD models into photorealistic masterpieces.

Understanding the Challenge

Designing a product is just the first step in a complex journey. Communicating your design intent to others is equally crucial.

Traditional methods, like sharing screenshots of CAD models or relying on technical drawings, often fall short in conveying the true essence of a design.

This gap between the intricacy of CAD models and their representation led to the birth of SOLIDWORKS Visualize.

Introducing SOLIDWORKS Visualize

SOLIDWORKS Visualize is a 3D visualisation tool that bridges the gap between technical designs and compelling visuals.

It offers an array of features and functionalities that empower designers, engineers, marketers, and other content creators to craft immersive experiences that bring designs to life.

By leveraging SOLIDWORKS Visualize, you can create photorealistic images, animations, interactive content, and even immersive virtual reality experiences from your CAD models.

Three Tiers of Excellence

SOLIDWORKS Visualize comes in three different product variants: Visualize Standard, Visualize Professional, and Visualize Connected. Each variant caters to specific needs, allowing you to choose the one that aligns with your project requirements.


Ideal for designers and engineers, SOLIDWORKS Visualize Standard enables the creation of static images that accurately represent your designs.

It can be purchased as a standalone product or bundled with an active SOLIDWORKS Professional or Premium subscriptions.


Taking a step further, SOLIDWORKS Visualize Professional is perfect for those seeking to create professional content for publication.

It expands on the capabilities of Visualize Standard, allowing the creation of animations, walkthroughs, interactive content, and even virtual reality experiences.


SOLIDWORKS Visualize Connected is available in 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS Professional and Premium packages, and offers all the functionalities of SOLIDWORKS Visualize Professional while also integrating seamlessly with the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.

This integration harnesses cloud data management and extends access to additional tools available on the platform.

The Versatility of Users

The beauty of SOLIDWORKS Visualize lies in its versatility.

It's not limited to a specific user group; rather, anyone within an organization who needs to create compelling visual content can benefit from it.

Engineers can use it to enhance design reviews, marketing teams can produce captivating product launch materials, and sales teams can showcase products to clients.

Technical authors can even leverage it to create assembly instructions that are both engaging and informative.

Unshackling from Traditional Workflows

SOLIDWORKS Visualize can function independently from SOLIDWORKS.

You don't need access to SOLIDWORKS to use Visualize, making it accessible to a wider user base within your organization. This means that anyone, regardless of their role or expertise, can contribute to the creation of impactful visual content.

Why not check out our SOLIDWORKS Visualize Training courses or get a Training Passport to upskill yourself and your design team?

The Seamless Workflow

SOLIDWORKS Visualize streamlines the design visualization workflow. When changes occur in your CAD data, you can easily re-import the latest model version into Visualize, automatically updating camera views, animations, and any other content you've created.

This flexibility ensures that your visuals stay aligned with your evolving design, no matter how frequent the changes.

Why Choose SOLIDWORKS Visualize?

In a world where design innovation is celebrated and clear communication is vital, SOLIDWORKS Visualize emerges as the clear frontrunner in rendering and visualization software.

With its ability to seamlessly transform complex CAD models into realistic and captivating visuals, it becomes an indispensable tool for professionals across various industries.
