When innovations like augmented and virtual reality emerge, it’s only natural that we immediately start dreaming of the potential they can bring. We’ve listened to your dreams and are proud to introduce new functionality that will allow you take advantage of these technologies and provide cutting-edge tools to inspire innovation and make great design happen!—
Welcome to SOLIDWORKS Xtended Reality – a method to transform your CAD data and bring it to life, virtually – opening the future of design and engineering.
With this new add-in to SOLIDWORKS, you’ll be able to export the amazing content you’ve created in SOLIDWORKS to power rich AR, VR and Web experience for yourselves AND your customers to:
· Sell your designs more effectively
· Connect with global teams to drive better designs more efficiently
· Train and engage consumers virtually
We have implemented an optimized export option from SOLIDWORKS that retains valuable information like materials, configurations, display states, and meta data, ideal for AR, VR and Web applications. Simultaneously, we’ve been working with partners and innovators in this space to support this new format and build highly useful solutions to support the use-cases you’ve asked for.
