Does anyone use Blender to Render Solidworks models?

Having trouble getting the Latest version of Blender and LuxBlend to install....just wondering if it is worth my time......

Any Suggestions?

You really only have a few options in that SW doesn't really kick out the file type(s) needed for blender. So you can check out this option for getting out an .obj file:

The "better" route, would be to use Modo as you have much better control in terms of getting files into and out of both programs.

posting for other questions too: im still puttin in hours with blender. got it yesterday and rendering about 50 models for a website. it is my first rendering software as i dont have swpro. i use .stl files and 3/40 havent came into blender properly. personally it has taken forever for me to pick up and i picked up sw on my own. one rendering will take 5 minutes given you dont f around with the terrible panels and navigation for half an hour.

however for a free program there is absoloutely nothing more you could ask for. its doing what i want
