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.
SOLIDWORKS Composer helps streamline how you create your product communications. Part of the SOLIDWORKS product development solution - covering design, simulation, technical communication, and data management—SOLIDWORKS Composer enables your entire staff, even those without engineering or CAD experience, to create illustrations, finished images, and interactive animations for use in a broad range of communication deliverables from shop floor work instructions to customer and supplier review presentations, product manuals, and installation guides. It works seamlessly with Microsoft®, Adobe®, and other popular publishing software, so you can easily include SOLIDWORKS Composer output.
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.
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 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 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.
New in SOLIDWORKS Composer 2021 is additional support for configurations to be loaded into the composer project upon import, along with removing any empty groups during the import process for easy cleanup. The overall load times have seen a performance improvement as well. In the past, invisible actors have been difficult to recall, now with Composer 2021, these actors will actively highlight. Users will also notice the cleaner, more modern user interface when working in SOLIDWORKS Composer 2021.
