Well, we’ve finally got SolidWorks 2011. They’ve made some tremendous improvements with rendering through the new PhotoView 360 (in contrast to PhotoWorks from 2007). Lately, we look for every excuse to render something.
Here’s the new Apple iPod nano modeled to exact dimensions (as provided by Apple) and rendered in PhotoView 360. It took under 60 minutes to model, choose material and decals, adjust the scene and render the final.
The quality and time savings in comparison to several years ago is incredible.
