What is SolidWorks?
SolidWorks is a 3D computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided engineering (CAE) software that is used for creating and designing models of parts, assemblies, and drawings. It is widely used in the manufacturing, mechanical engineering, and product design industries to create virtual prototypes of products before they are physically built.
CAD models created with SolidWorks can be viewed in virtual reality (VR). This allows users to interact with and manipulate the virtual models in a more immersive and realistic way, making it easier to identify and resolve any potential design issues before the physical product is built.
How to view SolidWorks models in VR?
There are various software and applications available that allow users to import and view CAD models in VR environments. This can be done by using a VR headset, such as the Oculus Rift or HTC Vive, and specialized software that is designed to support VR viewing of CAD models. The most user-friendly VR software to view CAD models, including models created with SolidWorks, is XR-EASY.
