What is SOLIDWORKS Visualize software?
SOLIDWORKS Visualize provides a suite of standalone software tools that combine industry-leading rendering capabilities with visual design-oriented features and workflows, allowing easy and fast creation of visual content that communicates a design’s vision, passion, and emotion.
Who can benefit from SOLIDWORKS Visualize?
SOLIDWORKS Visualize has been created for anyone who needs to create professional photo-quality, images, animations, and other 3D content in the fastest and easiest way possible. SOLIDWORKS Visualize is hardware-agnostic, which means designers, engineers, and content creators who use SOLIDWORKS or other CAD creation tools (such as Rhino®, Autodesk® Alias®, 3ds Max®) for product, architectural, yacht, mechanical, and other designs can produce an enhanced 3D decision making experience in a fast, easy, and fun way
No CAD knowledge required
With its simple, intuitive user interface, SOLIDWORKS Visualize requires virtually no learning curve and lets users produce content quickly. Detailed training materials, in-depth help files, online tutorials, and user forums provide more detailed instructions to help ensure that even non-technical staff can start creating amazing content instantly.

SOLIDWORKS Visualize Features
Create photo-realistic images for any industry
Create lifelike photo-quality images
You no longer need to compromise your marketing and presentation materials by relying on screen grabs, or budget for costly photographs of prototypes, to show your latest product.
With SOLIDWORKS Visualize, you can quickly and easily create:
- Lifelike photo-quality images
- A mood board of different colours and finishes
- High-resolution images ready for print and the web
- Technical illustrations of key features
Visualize Professional Features
With SOLIDWORKS Visualize Professional you can tell a deeper 3D story about your product using your CAD data. Professional enables users to easily generate photo-quality stills and interactive animations to effectively communicate the most complex design details.
Enjoy all the features of SOLIDWORKS Visualize Standard plus these additional features and more:
- Demonstrate products more effectively with full animation of parts, models, appearances, cameras, and environments
- Import your SOLIDWORKS Motion Studies for truly photographic animations
- Quickly show off the final design with one-click 360-degree spins
- Create interactive web content such as Interior Panoramas and Exterior VRs
- Present and compare varying design solutions side-by-side with multiple viewports and included Configurator tool
- Unleash your creative side with customizable Camera Filters
SOLIDWORKS Visualize Boost
Add-on product to SOLIDWORKS Visualize Professional that instantly increases render speeds and content productivity.
Similar to a printer queue in your office, SOLIDWORKS Visualize Boost allows SOLIDWORKS Visualize Professional users to send jobs to other machine, freeing up your machine to keep using Visualize or other demanding applications.
SOLIDWORKS Visualize Boost is a separate installation and should be installed on a separate computer(s) for the best experience. SOLIDWORKS Visualize Boost is easy to set up as a single node, or as a cluster so that you can scale your productivity efficiently.
Produce more SOLIDWORKS Visualize Professional content faster!
- Stack up multiple jobs in your Render Queue and offload
your local machine.
- Install SOLIDWORKS Visualize Boost on the machine(s) you want in your render farm, from the one included node or scale to a larger cluster.
- Leverage both CPUs and GPUs across your network
- Send SOLIDWORKS Visualize render jobs directly to those machines; then sit back and watch the render jobs fly off your Render Queue!
SOLIDWORKS Visualize Packages
Two packages to choose from
SOLIDWORKS Visualize Standard
SOLIDWORKS Visualize Standard is the fastest and easiest way to produce photo-quality images for taking “photos” of 3D data, cutting costs, and accelerating time-to-market with compelling imagery.
SOLIDWORKS Visualize Professional
SOLIDWORKS Visualize Professional lets you tell a deeper story with your CAD data by generating photo-quality imagery, interactive animations, 360-degree spins, immersive Virtual Reality (VR), and much more. Communicate the most complex design details with ease and beat your competition to market.

SOLIDWORKS Visualize Benefits
Easy to use software which will adapt to your business process
Produce Interactive VR & Panoramic outputs
The VR output renders a user-specified number of images from around the model and stitches them together so the model can be viewed from all angles, creating a truly interactive experience tumbling around the model.
Work with Configurations
Within a single Visualize project file, rapidly generate multiple design variations, product variants, material options, environments, camera angles and more, then click one button to automatically render out all Configurations at once. Very powerful tool for projects with multiple part/material options.
Custom camera Post-Processing (camera filters)
Unleash your creativity and add additional effects to your Visualize content with customizable camera filters and the new Bloom Filter, perfect for glowing LEDs, lights and sun highlights.
SOLIDWORKS Visualize PowerBoost opens up new doors to interactive real-time raytracing for the best visualization experience. SOLIDWORKS Visualize PowerBoost works hand-in-hand with your SOLIDWORKS Visual Boost cluster or NVIDIA Quadro® VCA(s).
