Export from Solidworks

Step 1: Apply materials

Add Solidworks material to differentiate different parts.

Weviz uses the different materials applied by Solidworks to your model to identify the different parts. On each part, you will be able to drag’n’drop a Weviz material.

To apply a material or check each part:

  • Right click on your part
  • Select material> Choose the relevant material.

Step 2: Export quality

Do not triangulate too much!

Unlike in rapid prototyping, low tesselation provides the best results in VR.

To set the tesselation level :

  • Go to> OptionsDocument> Properties> Image Quality.
  • Set the shaded @ draft quality Slider to a Low Value.
  • Check « Optimize edge length… »  & « Apply to all referenced part documents« 
  • Set the Wireframe Slider to a Low Value.
  • Then click on Ok.


Export only what you need!

Remove all useless objects from your export. If you want to validate the exterior shape of a design, it would be useless to import all the machinery hidden inside !

To export your 3D project:

  • Go to > File >Save as.
  • Select .3DXML*
  • Click on Save.
