SolidWorks Composer Overview
Repurpose existing 3D design data to create high quality graphical assets for product deliverables, including technical illustrations, animations, and interactive 3D content.
With its easy-to-use product approach, SolidWorks Composer streamlines the creation of 2D and 3D graphical contents for product communication and technical illustrations.
SolidWorks Composer allows non-technical users to create associative 2D and 3D product communication deliverables directly from your 3D CAD data. By leveraging existing product designs, SolidWorks Composer enables deliverables to be initiated earlier and then kept up to date automatically, helping to lower costs and speed time to market.
3D interactive animations, 2D line art images (SVG, EPS, CGM), as well as high-resolution raster images (BMP, JPG, PNG, and TIF files), can be created easily earlier in the design process.
By leveraging the power of 3D, manufacturers can produce technical product communications that help customers and partners understand and retain information more effectively.
Save Time, Reduce Costs,
Work More Efficiently
Product documentation and communication workflows typically begin only after designs are finalized. But SolidWorks Composer software lets you initiate technical communications earlier in the design process. You can automatically update all content if designs change, reducing rework and helping you bring products to market faster. Usable by non-technical staff–no CAD experience required--SolidWorks Composer software helps free engineers from the time consuming task of creating product documentation so they can focus on more high-value deliverables.
Communicate More Clearly
By illustrating products in 3D, you provide customers with clear, easily understandable documentation that vastly improves their ability to consume and retain information. With SolidWorks Composer software, you can create intelligent views, animations, 2D line art, and high resolution raster images for use in a wide range of materials like training modules, assembly instructions, and sales presentations. This dynamic content clearly communicates complex products and procedures visually and comprehensively, reducing the ambiguity of text-based material.
Leverage Existing Designs
SolidWorks Composer software works natively with existing SolidWorks design data, including visual attributes, file properties, and assembly hierarchies. It automatically creates a read-only copy whenever a CAD file is opened, protecting your design information from being inadvertently altered. Associations with the original data are maintained. It's easy to update SolidWorks Composer documentation, keeping it in synch if design changes occur. Your documentation stays accurate and is ready with the final design.
Grow Your Competitive Advantage
Incorporating rich technical imagery and animations into sales proposals and support materials lets you show your product before manufacture, gives your customers a more meaningful experience, and sets your business apart. Not only will your customers and partners better understand complex product information, but the material you provide will clearly differentiate your business and your products against the competition.
Get Started Quickly
Easy to learn and intuitive to use, SolidWorks Composer software is an ideal complement to content-delivery tools that you already use like Microsoft® Office®, Adobe® PDF, and HTML software. Even if you are inexperienced with CAD applications, you can quickly start generating high quality illustrations and interactive 3D animations with SolidWorks Composer programs to support your technical product communications.
