    Some opinions and questions about visualize.

    Max Balmenti

      Hello everyone. ( sorry for my bad english)


      I've tested in deeply Visualize ( 2017 version)  in a host friend architectural study, in past I've used Bunkspeed, and this is my opinion.


      1) The software is very good, ( thanks from iray gpu render engine based ) but for me, there are some features that must improves and some issues


      2) Why isn't possible duplicate a part of a model?


      3) Why, and that's happen very often, the file become a corrupt file after saved, and it's not open more? Often..too often it's happen, especially when erase a decal or duplicate a decal or in some other occasions, and this is vey a big problem because many hours of work was lost!


      4) MDL material, build with Substance designer, are compatibles with visualize?


      5) In some cases, it's not possiblle open a old files ( Visualize 2017 not open files generated with 2016 versions)


      6) Why in the material editor ( instance editor) there are only 4 channel ( Not specular or other channels )


      6) What is the cost about a licence, but for only visualize, not a entire Solidworks suite?


      Thanks in advance for answers.
