Whatever technical communication deliverables you need to produce

Effectively communicate complex product details by leveraging existing 3D CAD data across your organization to create polished content and animations.

  • First Article Inspection (FAI)
  • Inspection Reports (AS9102, PPAP, etc.)
  • Ballooned Drawings
  • Manufacturing assembly instructions
  • Product manuals
  • Installation instructions
  • Maintenance and repair guides
  • Training systems
  • Customer and supplier review
  • Brochures
  • Product web pages
  • Interactive, configurable product demos
  • Sales bidding kits


Composer Advantages


By illustrating products in 3D and creating high quality 2D content, you provide customers with clear, easy-to-understand documentation that vastly improves their ability to consume and retain information.

With SOLIDWORKS Composer, you can create intelligent views, interactive animations, 2D line art, and high resolution raster images for use in a wide range of communication materials like product manuals, training modules, assembly instructions, and sales presentations. The dynamic content clearly communicates complex products and procedures visually and comprehensively, reducing the ambiguity of text-based material.

Get Started Quickly

Easy to learn and intuitive to use, SOLIDWORKS Composer software is an ideal complement to formats that you already use, like Microsoft® Office®, Adobe® PDF, and HTML software. Even if you are inexperienced with CAD applications, you can quickly start generating high quality illustrations and interactive 3D animations with SOLIDWORKS Composer to support your technical product communications.

Grow Your Competitive Advantage

Incorporating rich technical imagery and 3D interactive animations into marketing collateral, sales proposals, and support materials lets you show your product before manufacture, gives your customers a more meaningful experience, and sets your business apart.

Not only will your customers and partners better understand complex product information, but the material you provide will clearly differentiate your business and your products against the competition.

Leverage Existing Designs

SOLIDWORKS Composer software works natively with existing SOLIDWORKS design data, including visual attributes, file properties, and assembly hierarchies. It automatically creates a read-only copy whenever a CAD file is opened, protecting your design information from being inadvertently altered.

Associations with the original data are maintained. It’s easy to update SOLIDWORKS Composer graphical content, keeping it in sync if design changes occur. Your product communication material stays accurate and is ready with the final design.

Save Time, Reduce Costs, Work More Efficiently

Product documentation and communication workflows typically begin only after designs are finalized. Often, the process doesn’t even start until after the manufacturing phase, because the graphical content comes from digital pictures of the real products. But SOLIDWORKS Composer software lets you initiate technical communications earlier in the design process, with content coming from the 3D model. You can start creating your product communication deliverables concurrently with the design process.

You can automatically update all content if designs change, reducing rework and helping you bring products to market faster. With no CAD experience required, SOLIDWORKS Composer software is usable by everyone involved in Product Development. SOLIDWORKS Composer helps free engineers from the time-consuming task of creating visual assets for product documentation so they can focus on what they do best—designing great products.
