Using Realview-Only patterns with non-compatible graphics card.

Hi all,


Unfortunately the graphics card on my PC is not one of the 'official' Solidworks cards and as such I do not have access to Realview and by extension certain patterns.


I have a model on which I need to put hundreds of thousands of teeny tiny holes so I had hoped to use the cosmetic hole pattern however this unfortunately is a Realview Only pattern. I am still able to apply the pattern but obviously there's no visual change when I do this. If I go to render this now, will my hole pattern become visible?


Does anybody have any kind of work around on this? Using Linear Patterning is out of the question because of the sheer volume of holes I need to put on my model.


Thanks very much!
