The subject of visualization is an important component of product development. Photo-realistic renderings can illustrate the design idea and make it “real” at an early stage in the concept phase. The render modules integrated in the SolidWorks design soft-ware are based directly on the 3D CAD data, are parametrically linked and, by creating configurations, enable the efficient display of color and shape variants.
Separated from product development, ren-derings are often an interesting alternative to product photos – e.g. for brochures, in-structions for use or online catalogs. In the field of interior design, you put furniture in the context of a virtual space.
