Sometimes I make a screen capture when rendering isn't required. If you select 'print capture' in the options (Save as .jpg, and then options), you can get quite a nice image of your model. But in my case, the shadows and reflections are very bad quality, see attachment. In my opinion this is a setting in SolidWorks performance, but I can't find it.
Does anyone know how to increase the quality of shadows and reflections when viewing a model (as this view is eventually exported as a jpg)?
