I rendered the assembly shown below, but as you can see the image does not look too well.Is that because of my laptop (low-ended graphic card/chip)?
Use SolidWorks Visualize...
But how? I'm quite new to Solidworks.I use 2016 Premium but don't see that either in Add-Ins nor as dedicated program.
Log in to your account and on the Self-Service screen, under downloads you will see Visualize.
In 2016 Visualize was a separate install, but in 2017 it gets installed with SolidWorks, You will need a separate license (free). Contact your VAR.
Thanks a lot.
For what it's worth Stanislav, I think it looks great ... I'm hoping you'll post another pic of what your final rendering looks like if you consider this one to be poor quality.
Your low end computer has nothing to do with your image output. It's only effect is the time it takes to render!
Changing rendering programs will not automatically give you better images
Practice and experimentation will!
There are numerous changes and settings in both PV360 & Visualize that will change the images.
Environments, lights, environment rotation, Cameras, materials, bump, refraction, reflections, decals and the list goes on
A good learning resource is Rob Rodriguez Guides - Axis Cad Solutions
I have a few posts on changing settings in PhotoView 360 PhotoView 360 Rendering | Michael Lord
there is dozens of light settings you can play with. essentially adding textures, (or changing the surface) along with adjusting the lighting can make it look way better.. it takes ALOT of effort though. I spend probably 2 weeks on and off just tinkering with a frosted plastic look about 4 or 5 years ago.. and it still wasnt perfect... (its on here somewhere in some rendering thread) I suggested back then there should be a shared library for material settings but idk if it ever happened and i havent messed with rendering much since.
using PV360 here,.. and as most are suggesting.. enviroment settings (hdr) or lighting rules with getting a good base render for your scene.. adding materials and setting your camera to get a good view.. and you should be off running..
..here's a example.. I downloaded this "Pedestal Rotary Gear Pump" from 3DContentCentral and added a environment with a HDR file and added materials and my camera... give it a try... good luck! (oh, btw, change the "depth of field" to ~437mm)
In addition to the other great suggestions given here also give this a try:
One heck of a great "Feature" where you weren't expecting it...
Hi everyone, thank you for all the answers! I have applied many suggestions mentioned here a finally got this result from Visualize:
It's indented for presentation purpose and I'm not easily satisfied. It is possible to import it into 3Ds Max for instance and render it with Maxwell?
