If I use SW files for 3D models in Visualize and make some changes in the SW files
Is there a way to show the updates in Visualize
Hi Jake, the Part Grouping is an option that has to be chosen upon import and cannot be changed at a later time unfortunately. The setting is in Import Settings Dialog > Geometry > Part Grouping (see screenshot):
Hi Jake ,
this feature is called CAD Live Update and is built into Visualize Standard and Professional. you can utilize this by making sure the Monitor File option is checked when importing a part

thank you, Scott
So you have to check this option while importing files
otherwise, there is no way to check this option after importing
you may also enable the file monitoring at a later time or just manually trigger a re-import via Palette > Model > General > Original Source. See screenshot...
Note: You need to make sure to select a part grouping mode upon Import that supports re-importing geometry (e.g. Automatic).
The re-importing option is grey out since I did not check "automatic" when I import in the first place.
I checked mine and couldn't find where I can change from "appearance" to "automatic"
Thank you, JB
