Solidwoks plugin using the network
« on: December 15, 2014, 09:53:53 pm »

I've got a question. We have a little problem, we've got two PC's with Solidworks 2014 and other two PC's with KeyShot Pro 5.1.
When we try to install the plugin, Solidworks ask us where is the KeyShot installed. But this one is installed on another computer.
Could you configure the plugin using the network? In the office we work on a server by local network.

The idea is that while some people are modelling, the computer may be rendering.

Hope your answer soon, thanks ;)

Try installing the demo on the SW machine:

This will get you through the plugin installation. Then save out BIPs from the SW machine (through the plugin) for the KS machine to use.
