SOLIDWORKS PhotoView 360 2014 adds some new non photorealistic options for your output. The first thing that springs to mind for me is to communicate concept designs. Rather than dusting off the marker pens you  can create a quick concept image in SOLIDWORKS. To enable the option on the Render Tools tab, select Options.   Next tick Contour/Cartoon Rendering and use the drop down to pick the new Cartoon Style. This will appear on the preview renders unlike the old contour....

If you didn't manage to make it to SOLIDWORKS World this year or perhaps you were lucky enough to be there but you just didn't get chance to see everything going on be sure to take a look at the SOLIDWORKS World 2014 Proceedings page. With so much going on at the whilwind conference it seems inevitable that the odd breakout session may have to be missed or an exhibitor's name not caught but this is no longer the case as SOLIDWORKS have made every single breakout session from the conference ....

HOWZAT!!! Our nation will soon be in mourning when the Australian cricket team claw back those coveted ashes. How can our acclaimed 11 be blown away with such ease by the Aussie bowlers?

Whilst we don't want to spoil our up and coming 2014 launch events, there is one enhancement in particular that seems to be creating a bit of a buzz in the SOLIDWORKS Community.
