You can look at a photo-realistic rendering of your digital prototype by exporting your model and selected results to a file and importing it into Autodesk Showcase.
Autodesk Moldflow products are used to predict how well a certain mold design will fill, and where defects such as sink marks or weld lines might occur. To visualize how the part might actually look in real life and assess whether these defects are really of concern, the part model and selected results can be exported as an ASCII FBX file (*.fbx), which can be imported into Autodesk Showcase.

This feature is available for Dual Domain and 3D models.
To view your results in Autodesk Showcase, open Showcase, click ( and navigate to the folder in which you saved your exported file. Select the file, then click Open and the model will appear in the window. Select appropriate materials and lighting to generate a photo-realistic rendering and see whether these defects are significant.
Digital prototypes of your model can be exported to Autodesk Showcase for photo-realistic rendering.

Select the entities you would like to export. You can select part surface only, or you can include sink marks and/or warpage. Assign a scale factor and units, then browse to the location in which you would like to save the file and assign a unique name.
