The MODO for SOLIDWORKS kit is for design and engineering visualization professionals wanting to import SOLIDWORKS parts, bodies and assemblies into MODO. In MODO, you can select import the data by appearance, part, body or face and create new layers in MODO to apply materials to specific parts of your design. The kit also provides user interface and navigation controls similar to SOLIDWORKS and PhotoView 360.
As you load SOLIDWORKS parts, bodies and assemblies into MODO, their original appearances and decals are retained. The kit provides options for efficiently importing your data, providing access to MODO data structures that conserve memory and leverage instanced geometry across the scene. Inside MODO, you are presented with a familiar SOLIDWORKS-style layout and navigation controls, along with drag and drop support for changing materials and selecting lighting environments.
