Rendering Images

To render output to a Visualize Boost cluster:

  1. In SOLIDWORKS Visualize Professional, open a model and click Tools > Render, or in the main toolbar, click Output Tools .
  2. In the Output Tools dialog box, under the Render Settings area, click PowerBoost .
    The Cluster name displays.
  3. Set the Render Mode. You can set a time limit or select Quality and enter a number of Passes. The default of 500 passes is adequate for most render jobs.
  4. To start rendering at a later time, select Send to Queue.

    The job is sent to the SOLIDWORKS Visualize Queue and does not complete until you click Start Queue in the Queue Client.

  5. Click Start Render.

    On the Output Viewer tab, in the render job palette, you can click Pause Job, Save Current Image, or Cancel Render to stop the rendering.

When using Visualize Boost for rendering, the Visualize Professional computer must stay online and connected to the network. The computer cannot be turned off or unplugged from the Internet until Visualize Boost has completed the job.
