“Improve your technical communication with 3D product manufacturing information, automated creation of inspection documents and re-purposing of design data for high quality graphics, illustrations and interactive 3D.”
What is SolidWorks Composer?
SolidWorks composer enables you to easily create 2D and 3D graphical content directly from your 3D CAD files for your product technical communication. The easy-to-use tools and intuitive product approach let you work directly from 3D CAD data to make high quality illustrations, photo realistic images, and even interactive animations without waiting for a physical prototype.
Even nontechnical users can leverage existing product designs with SolidWorks Composer and create associative 2D and 3D deliverables that automatically stay up-to-date with the latest design changes. You can start producing a range of technical communication graphical assets (such as 3D interactive animations, 2D line art images, and high-resolution raster images such as BMP, JPG, PNG, and TIF files) earlier in the design process, helping to lower costs and speed time-to-market.
Beyond graphical content, SolidWorks Composer can also retain critical design information already built into the CAD model, such as part numbers. Traditionally, manufacturers had to re-enter part numbers into their documentation—a manual, time-consuming job that adds cost, is prone to error, difficult to update, and inconsistent. SolidWorks Composer automates this process to save you time and minimize human errors.
Easily import design data to create bills of materials (BOMs), add dimensions, place surface finish labels, and easily create and update high quality graphical assets that are fully associated with your 3D design.
SolidWorks Composer solutions include:
- Technical Product Communication – SolidWorks Composer Technical Communication software encourages clarity by enabling designers, shop floor, sales, and marketing departments to easily create and deliver 2D and 3D graphical content from existing 3D CAD data. Even non-technical users can clearly present and explain products and processes by quickly repurposing CAD content for technical product communication —while updating it automatically as design changes occur.
- Interactive 3D Communication – 3D communication and interactive animations created with SolidWorks Composer foster instant understanding of your product’s unique advantages and technical specifications.
- 2D and 3D Publishing – Deliver clear compelling graphics to end users by simplifying the creation of 2D and 3D graphical content for technical illustrations in product communication.
- Concurrent Product Communication Development – Free technical and marketing departments from inefficient work flows by enabling them to: start creating product communications sooner, update them as the design evolves, and have them finished simultaneously with the product ship date.
