Documentation Software - SolidWorks 3DVIA Composer

Supplier: Solidtec Solutions

Repurpose 3D to simplify and streamline technical communication.


SolidWorks 3DVIA Composer documentation software is easy-to-use documentation software that anyone associated with product development can use to quickly create content for technical communication such as printed documents and interactive animations from existing 3D models—whether for assembly instructions, marketing collateral, technical illustrations, or training materials.

Recognise 3D as an important virtual asset and put it to work for your organisation. With the SolidWorks 3DVIA Composer™ documentation software, individuals in manufacturing, technical publications, marketing, and training are able to repurpose 3D data to create accurate graphics and interactive content early in the design process.

The traditional way
Traditionally, engineers spend valuable hours capturing screen shots and creating configurations and exploded views of their designs for both internal departments and external agencies. Every design change means a lot of rework and frustration. This imperfect system often leads to workflow bottlenecks on the engineering side and costly delays in getting products to market.

The 3DVIA Composer way
With SolidWorks 3DVIA Composerdocumentation software, your company’s designs and documentation can be produced on parallel tracks. SolidWorks 3DVIA Composer documentation softwre enables individuals with little or no CAD background to directly access design files and pull the graphics needed—whether it’s a high-quality image for a brochure or a series of exploded views showing step-by-step assembly instructions.

With a few simple clicks, SolidWorks 3DVIA Composer documentation software allows you to create raster images or scalable vector illustrations with options to control outer line thickness, component colors, shading, balloons, interactive parts lists, and symbols. Generating animations for sales presentations and websites is equally simple.

3DVIA Composer allows you to easily and efficiently create:

  • Assembly/disassembly instructions
  • Technical illustrations
  • Interactive animations
  • Product manuals
  • Printed catalogs

Win more business
Eliminate the waiting time for physical prototypes to create presentation materials.

  • Demonstrate products more effectively with interactive storyboards
  • Highlight key differentiators with detail views and transparent components
  • Impress prospects with quick turnaround of updated designs with interactive animations

Get products to market faster than ever before
Companies succeed when communication across departments is clear and concise. Communicating with 3D results in fewer errors and can ensure that a product and all its accompanying deliverables get to market faster.

  • Create assembly instructions and manuals concurrent with design
  • Consume and deliver interactive 3D material with free player
