Home Screen

In Visualize's home screen, you can easily find projects that you opened recently, and perform other tasks.

You can view thumbnails of recently opened SOLIDWORKS Visualize (*.SVPJ) and Bunkspeed (*.BIF) projects, open the projects with a click, “pin” projects so they always appear on the home screen ahead of unpinned projects, and show the folder in which each project file is stored in Windows Explorer.

In a separate tab, you can view thumbnails of recently opened SOLIDWORKS assemblies and parts (*.SLDASM, *.SDPRT) , open them by clicking on a thumbnail, and show the folder in which each file is stored in Windows Explorer.

You can find and download sample projects stored in the Visualize cloud library.

Links on the home screen make it easy to read useful tips, watch tutorials, and find links to perform actions like viewing online help and accessing community forums, where you can share and discuss renderings.
