Which SOLIDWORKS Composer package is right for you?
Why choose SOLIDWORKS Composer?
Easily repurpose existing 3D models to rapidly create and update high-quality graphical assets that are fully associated with your 3D design.
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 Features
SOLIDWORKS Composer supports a wide range of 3D CAD formats, including SOLIDWORKS, Pro/ENGINEER/Creo®, and Autodesk® Inventor, as well as neutral file formats such as STEP, IGES, and others.
Update content with the latest design changes (geometry, Bill of Materials (BOM) tree, metadata,and others.)
Work directly from 3D CAD data and create 2D and 3D graphical content in multiple formats, such as raster images (JPG, BMP, TIF, PNG); vector images (SVG, EPS, SVGZ, CGM); videos (AVI); and 3D interactive animations (3D PDF, HTML, SMG); executable package, (ActiveX control). Add annotations (auto balloons, BOM table, arrows, and detail views). Change appearances (hide/show, transparency, and colors).
Create step by step step-by-step procedures showing incremental components.
Create interactive storyboards by adding links to relevant views. Animate appearances and custom properties. Create keyframe animation by drag-and-drop views on timeline. Create interactive animations with markers and filter timeline keys for finer control.
Create a manufacturing BOM independent of an engineering BOM. Customize parts lists and properties for each view.
Automate batch mode import of 3D files and publishing content. Automate document creation within existing workflow systems. Automate document translation by using custom XML programming.
