SolidWorks to PhotoView issues

Discussion created by Kevin Quigley on Jul 22, 2008
I'm having real issues with moving from SolidWorks 2009 beta 2 to PhotoView - summary:

1. Component visibility is ignored by PhotoView
2. Textures and colours applied as assembly level appearances are ignored by PhotoView.
3. Texturing for textured materials (woods) cannot be controlled and the material have visible tiling. (on a note on the wood materials they don't look that realistic in any environment - a distinct plastic look about them)

Screenshots. Assembly file in SolidWOrks RealView. Same file opened in PhotoView. Same file with wood (walnut) applied and scaled 500%
