SOLIDWORKS Composer Examples
The Full Interactive Experience
Settling for a single publication is not good enough. The reason you got Composer is so you can repurpose all those 3D models you spent so much time developing, it’s now time to get the most out of your Composer content. By linking all your raster, vector, video, PDF and interactive documentation together the full interactive experience is born, enabling your customers and your entire organization to collaboratively access all your technical and visual communications.
Installation & Maintenance
If you’re shipping a product that requires any sort of assembly, your customer probably expects some kind of printed manual or instructions. Utilizing SOLIDWORKS Composer’s high speed image output simplifies creating and updating all of your assembly and operation manuals.

Best of all, there’s no need to install anything: Composer interactive publications are self-executable.

Industry compliant templates come with SOLIDWORKS Inspection in Excel format and these can be adjusted to any layout you need with the template editor that comes with the software.
