Shadow Catcher Property

You can turn any part object geometry into a shadow catcher object. Shadow catchers show the background through them and display shadows cast from lighting in the scene. For example, you can create a wall and specify it as a shadow catcher.

The shadow catcher object allows control over the shadow intensity, reflection and reflection roughness.

Shadow catcher is only available:

  • In SOLIDWORKS Visualize Professional or SOLIDWORKS Connected.
  • When you specify Rendering Selection as Accurate.
