New SOLIDWORKS Sell Tutorials

Posted by Oboe Wu Oct 31, 2018

Dear all,

New SOLIDWORKS Sell Tutorials are available now: SOLIDWORKS | Sell.

Have fun!


One of my favorite parts of SOLIDWORKS Sell is the scene settings tab in the backend editor. This is a whole section that is dedicated to adding small details to your template to make it look even more realistic. By adding a few scene settings, you will be able to revolutionize your templates with a couple shadows, colors, and reflections. In this next video we will discuss how to add these options to your templates as well as how to add previews to them as well.

SOLIDWORKS Sell uses UV coordinates to apply 2D textures and materials to 3D objects. UV coordinates uses is a separate coordinate system than the typical XYZ, and helps ensure that materials are not warped when they are applied to parts. In this video, you will learn about the different ways UV coordinates apply materials and how to alter them to fit your own needs in a few easy steps.

Another noteworthy aspect of SOLIDWORKS Sell is the ability to create previews. Previews help you see what your templates may look like on your website, and it's as easy as clicking and dragging boxes across your screen. After watching this tutorial, you will learn how to make a preview from scratch and customize it to your needs. You can even make a preview for your phone or tablet with configurations!

Materials are a very important part to making your product stand out. SOLIDWORKS Sell has a whole library of different materials, but if you can't find the one you are looking for, you can make your own! In this short video we will show you the basics of how to create exceptional materials to put onto your templates. What will you make?

After creating a template though the publisher, you can now put everything together with the backend editor. The backend editor is host to many different settings and options that will be split up into several videos. In this video we will go through the parts, groups, and assembly tabs, while also touching upon the importance of attachment points, group type, and linking parts together.

When learning something new, it is always good to start by learning the basics first. In this video series, you will be guided with step by step instructions on how to use SOLIDWORKS Sell, from creating a new template to seeing how it will look like on a website.  SOLIDWORKS Sell is a feature that provides an easy way for your customers to create customized products.


In this post you will find the first video of the series, and more specifically, you will learn about the publisher in SOLIDWORKS. Using a simple garden table, we're going to show how to start with your SOLIDWORKS assemblies and transform them into customizable templates for SOLIDWORKS Sell. Hope you enjoy!

To promote product ideas and options internally or externally, you can present customizable 3D products online.
