Clearly explain and present your product or process using 2D and 3D graphical content that you can quickly create with SOLIDWORKS Composer software. The easy-to-use tools and intuitive product approach let you work directly from 3D CAD data to make high quality illustrations, photorealistic 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 (SVG, EPS, CGM), and high-resolution raster images (BMP, JPG, PNG, and TIF files)] earlier in the design process, helping to lower costs and speed time-to-market.
By leveraging the power of 3D, manufacturers can use SOLIDWORKS Composer to produce technical communication that helps customers and partners understand and retain product information more effectively.
Beyond graphical content, SOLIDWORKS Composer can also retain critical design information already built into the CAD model, such as part numbers. Traditionally, manufacturers have had to re-enter it into their documentation—a manual, time-consuming job that adds cost, is prone to error, difficult to update, and inconsistent. Why re-enter data that is already available?
Now with SOLIDWORKS Composer, you can easily import design data to create bills of materials (BOMs), add dimensions, place surface finish labels, and so on.
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
SOLIDWORKS Composer Technical Communication software enables technical, sales, and marketing departments to easily incorporate 3D graphics and interactive animation into technical product communication to show your products and processes more clearly and effectively. Even non-technical users can repurpose CAD content, quickly and cost effectively creating interactive 3D communications.
SOLIDWORKS Composer Technical Communication software helps deliver clear compelling graphics to end users by simplifying the creation of 2D graphical content for technical illustrations in product communication. Even non-technical users can repurpose CAD content to produce high quality images and eliminate the need for engineering to generate screen shots, exploded views, and other technical illustrations.
2D and 3D Publishing
SOLIDWORKS Composer Technical Communication software enables a highly interactive end-user experience, allowing technical and marketing departments to easily create high quality 2D and 3D technical communication with the greatest level of product detail and clarity. With the intuitive, powerful 2D publishing, 3D publishing, and viewer tools of SOLIDWORKS Composer, even non-technical users can generate clear, effective communications quickly.
Concurrent Product Communication Development
SOLIDWORKS Composer Technical Communication software frees technical and marketing organizations 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. All too often, product documentation starts at the end of the development process, because technical publishers need to wait for a final CAD screen shot for the actual product for digital photography.
