SolidWorks Rendering with PhotoView 360

with Gabriel Corbett

Video: Welcome

(MUSIC) Hi. I'm Gabriel Corbett, and welcome to SolidWorks Rendering with PhotoView 360. PhotoView 360 is a rendering and animation plugin, available to the professional and premium versions of SolidWorks. In this course, we'll look at creating photo realistic renderings that you can use to showcase your designs. I will start by going over the basics of a rendered scene and develop that scene into fully rendered images and animations. We'll be applying materials and textures to parts and assemblies, setting up scenes and backgrounds for our images and adding in lights to highlight key features and remove shadows.
