SolidWorks is one of the most popular 3D modeling programs around, and while you can import the part and assembly files directly into KeyShot, you can also use the KeyShot SolidWorks plugin to import your model, creating visuals faster with Luxion’s LiveLinking technology to send any model changes back over to KeyShot. In this short video, you’ll learn how to enhance your workflow between KeyShot and Solidworks with all that the KeyShot Solidworks plugin has to offer.
