New to Visualize 2021 is the ability to utilize SOLIDWORKS model configurations. Previously, configurations could be added in Visualize only. Visualize configurations were much like Display States in SOLIDWORKS; only the appearances of the models could change. In Visualize 2021 users can now access their SOLIDWORKS configurations to show geometric changes in a single Visualize project.
Before SOLIDWORKS configurations can be selected in a Visualize project, you will have to add the Display Data Mark to the configurations in SOLIDWORKS.
Once you have added the Display Data Mark to your SOLIDWORKS configurations, export the model to Visualize from the Visualize toolbar, or import within Visualize by going to File -> Open, then browse for your model.
