    Downloading Appearances for SolidWorks Visualize

    Michael Moffatt

      I am increasing the amount of work I do within SolidWorks Visualize but one thing I find lacking in the software is the quantity of stock appearances, even when tapping into the cloud library. What I would like to know is:

       

      1. Is it possible to import your own custom appearances without having to set them up in Visualize and if so,
      2. Does anyone know of a good website to download appearances from?

       

      Other than displacement mapping which I'm aware is broken in Visualize at the moment, this seems to be the main sticking point for a couple of users that I am trying to convince to switch over from 3DS Max / Maya and I somewhat agree. We could definitely benefit from a few more default appearances and textures.
