Export from SolidWorks to VRML2 format if you want to keep object colors that were applied in SolidWorks.
If you need more complex coloring (image textures mapped to your object), you will probably have to add it
using some other program such as Blender. Colors should be visible in the static preview on Shapeways if
the upload worked correctly.
