A decal is a 2D image applied to a model. You can use decals to apply warning or instruction labels to models. You can also use decals to create model details that you can effectively represent with an image instead of with the model geometry, such as a car grill or a picture frame.
You can view and apply decals in SolidWorks. You can view decals in eDrawings and PhotoView 360.
