With the release of SolidWorks 2017, the installation of the SolidWorks Visualization product range has been streamlined into the SolidWorks Installation Manager, bypassing the need to manually download SolidWorks Visualize from the Customer Portal. All seats of SolidWorks Professional or above on active subscription are entitled to a complementary seat of SolidWorks Visualize, this article is intended to show you how to access it.

1. First we need the installation media, which can either be obtained from the SolidWorks disc or downloaded from the ‘Downloads and Updates’ section of the SolidWorks Customer Portal.

2.  Start the Installation Manager. You will be asked to enter Serial Numbers for the products that you wish to install. As of 2017, Visualize has its own independent serial number and is no longer activated using your SolidWorks serial number, so if you do not have/know your serial number then contact Cadtek Technical support on 01663 741405 or by email at ‘Support@Cadtek.com’ and we can provide it for you.

3. On the Product Selection Screen, ensure that SolidWorks Visualize has been ticked. If it is not ticked, it will not be installed and you will have to repeat the installation process. If ticked, click next and continue through to complete the install.

4. After the install is complete, you will be able to start and activate Visualize. Simply click the Visualize icon, select to activate SolidWorks Visualize and provide your email address where asked

And that’s it, you have successfully activated SolidWorks Visualize! Please feel free to get in touch and share your renders with us.
