Sunlight Environment

With a sunlight environment, you can stage a model under a realistic sky and light from the sun at a specific time of year and location on earth.

To create a sunlight environment, click New Project > Scenes > New Sunlight Environment or import sunlight data from SOLIDWORKS. In SOLIDWORKS, click SOLIDWORKS Visualize > Export Advanced.

You can:
  • Specify the north direction using the compass manipulator.

  • Specify an exact date, time, location, and time zone.
  • Use the Animation Wizard to animate the sunlight environment and study the design over the course of time.
