The 3D Preview Settings is available from the settings of each DriveWorks module.
With this option checked DriveWorks Autopilot will be used to generate any required 3D Preview files.
DriveWorks Autopilot is required to be run as an administrator when using the 3D Preview Box control. To do this:
Please ensure the DriveWorks 3D Export Add-In is set to load on Start Up in SOLIDWORKS on the machine Autopilot is generating 3D Previews.
When Autopilot generates models for the 3D preview it generates real time files (with RTA/RTP suffixes)
By default, these files are stored in a [GroupContent]\3DPreview\Temp folder.
Use the browse button to select an alternative location to store these SOLIDWORKS files.
Click the Add Exception button to prevent Windows from blocking communications attempts.
This will add an exception to the firewall for the port needed to receive 3D previews on the Autopilot machine.
