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, dimensions, quantity, standard specifications, torque, surface finish, and so on. 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
- 2D and 3D Publishing
- Interactive 3D Communication
- Concurrent Product Communication Development
- Technical Illustration
Why choose SOLIDWORKS Composer?
Repurpose your 3D engineering models for creating graphical content to explain processes and procedures in technical communications, such as manufacturing assembly instructions, product manuals, installation instructions, service manuals, training guides, marketing brochures, and sales bidding kits.
Which SOLIDWORKS Composer package is right for you?
SOLIDWORKS Composer allows you to quickly create 2D and 3D graphical content to clearly explain and present your product or process. The tools let you work directly from 3D CAD data to create high-quality illustrations, photorealistic images, and interactive animations, and to import design data.
SOLIDWORKS Composer Player Professional
Interact with 3D content using SOLIDWORKS Composer Player Professional. It includes all the features of the SOLIDWORKS Composer Player but also enables you to interrogate a model, adjust the viewing angle, and rotate/pan/zoom in real time. You can also use custom APIs to customize the Player.
SOLIDWORKS Composer Sync
SOLIDWORKS Composer Sync creates a batch conversion process from 3D CAD and other 3D formats into SOLIDWORKS Composer format. Changes in product data or manufacturing information can be automatically updated to SOLIDWORKS Composer deliverables. You can save batch job settings to XML for future use.
SOLIDWORKS Composer Enterprise Sync
SOLIDWORKS Composer Enterprise Sync is the enterprise version of SOLIDWORKS Composer Sync with additional features to update information for maintaining accurate product technical communication. Changes in product or manufacturing information can also be updated for SOLIDWORKS Composer deliverables.
SOLIDWORKS Composer Check
With SOLIDWORKS Composer Check, you can identify costly design errors by examining clearances and planning production paths before the products hit the shop floor, giving you instant validation for assembly procedures after a design change.
