SOLIDWORKS Composer
Overview 

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.

AMD Looks to SOLIDWORKS Composer to Showcase the Power of AMD FirePro Professional Graphics

Challenge:

Needed a compelling way to demonstrate the features of the AMD FirePro W7000 graphics card installed in a Dell Precision T7610 workstation.

Solution:

Brought existing AMD and Dell CAD models into SOLIDWORKS Composer to easily create an interactive and engaging demo that communicates the compelling design attributes of both products.

Results:

The demo is a versatile vehicle in use at trade shows, user group events, in Dell Solutions Centers and for regional sales needs. Even those without a technical understanding of computer hardware products understand the benefits displayed in the SOLIDWORKS Composer animation.

“Dell workstation product assemblies are massive and include many subassemblies and components, so information can get deep quickly. With its ability to seamlessly work with CATIA and SOLIDWORKS datasets, SOLIDWORKS Composer gives us the ability to easily put a workflow demonstration and animations together that are very intuitive without having to explain a lot of details. The result is an encapsulated demonstration that is easy for a marketing generalist to create and for anyone to use.”
— Antoine Reymond Senior Strategic Alliances Manager, AMD

SOLIDWORKS Composer Capabilities

SOLIDWORKS® Composer™ Technical Communication software simplifies the experience for your users by giving you the tools for faster, easier creation of graphical content that clearly and accurately presents your product—how it works, how to assemble it, how to use it, and how to service it.

You work from your 3D CAD data, automatically keeping content up-to-date with the latest design changes—and without waiting for a physical prototype. The intuitive SOLIDWORKS Composer software enables even non-technical users to develop stunning 2D and 3D content quickly and more cost effectively.

Technical Illustration

Simplify creation of 2D graphical content directly from your CAD data for producing high quality technical illustrations that automatically update with design changes.

2D and 3D Content Publishing

Easily create high quality 2D and 3D technical communication with the greatest level of product detail and clarity for an interactive end-user experience.

Concurrent Product Communication Development

Create technical communications from the start of product development and update them automatically so that materials are finished and delivered simultaneously with your product.
