I had a request for instructions on how to render a model using SolidWorks after posting this.

So I decided to make an instructional video, just in case anyone else wanted to know.

Many thanks for this, I will give it a try!

BTW, for anyone interested, I use Bryce/DAZ 3D for rendering, which is free, very powerful, intuitive and easy to use, produces virtually photographic-quality images and can also render animations, although it's quite slow.

For example, here are some images of Qubami created with Bryce/DAZ 3D, where it simulates quite well the translucent rounded blocks and domed metallic labels with different backgrounds and lighting conditions:

Extremely impressive kelvin, I just downloaded Bryce7 and I cannot wait to try it out. I will post here again if I have any success.

Great. I can send you (or anyone else) one of these Bryce files to play around with if you like.
