Enhancements to Importing Mesh Files as Graphics Bodies

When you import mesh files as graphics bodies, the SOLIDWORKS software now supports additional features.

  • You can apply texture and appearances to mesh files that you import into SOLIDWORKS as graphics bodies.
  • The imported graphics bodies are visible when you view them in HLR, HLV, and wireframe modes.
  • The SOLIDWORKS software can render the imported graphics bodies along with solid and surface bodies.
  • The imported graphics bodies can appear behind other geometry. Previously, they always appeared in the foreground even if the other geometry should have been displayed in front of the graphics bodies.
  • Imported .3MF files that contain meshes with textures and appearances display the texture and appearances on the imported graphics bodies.
