Selecting a Visualize Boost Cluster for Rendering

Before you can use a Boost cluster for rendering, you must add it to a Profiles list on your SOLIDWORKS Visualize Professional computer, and then select it.

To add and select a Boost cluster in the Profiles list:

  1. In SOLIDWORKS Visualize, click Tools > Options and select the Boost tab.
  2. Click Scan to search the network for Boost clusters.
  3. Click Add to add a new cluster to the list of cluster profiles. Only select NVIDIA VCA if you have installed an NVIDIA Quadro VCA on your network.
  4. In the Profiles list, highlight the cluster name. The Boost Settings area displays the status, cluster name, and the cluster discovery address.
  5. Optional: Adjust PowerBoost settings for real-time ray tracing.
  6. Click Connect.
