solidworks visualize

Solidworks Visualize products (formerly known as Bunkspeed) provide a suite of standalone software tools that combine industry-leading rendering capabilities with design-oriented features and workflows that enable easy and fast creation of visual content for designers, engineers, marketing, and other content creators.

 

Import SOLIDWORKS, Autodesk Alias, Rhino, SketchUp and many other CAD formats to create compelling scenes and ultimately the most realistic content possible.

 

SOLIDWORKS Visualization products help organizations, including nontechnical users, leverage 3D CAD data to create photorealistic marketing content that is print and web ready in minutes. From static images to animations and immersive web content, SOLIDWORKS Visualization products deliver photographical content that clearly and emotionally depicts products in the real world.

By improving concepts that are viewed throughout the design, development, and marketing phases, SOLIDWORKS Visualization products help users and stakeholders select, validate, improve, and sell the best and most robust design concepts before committing expensive engineering, prototyping, and marketing resources to the project. Help reduce errors and ensure that products get to market faster:

 

Improve internal design, engineering, and sales reviews to help make more educated final decisions.

Drastically reduce the cost and number of physical prototypes, helping to arrive at final design decisions much more efficiently.

Deliver photorealistic imagery and content to marketing much earlier to help promote the newest products via web/print.

Added time savings allow for more design time, which results in an overall better final product.
