Products Manage and Communicate SOLIDWORKS Composer


Easily repurpose existing 3D design data to rapidly create and update high quality graphical assets that are fully associated with your 3D design.

SOLIDWORKS Composer allows non-CAD users to create associative 2D and 3D product documentation directly from 3D CAD data. SOLIDWORKS Composer empowers users in documentation, sales, marketing, customer service, training, support and manufacturing with 3D data and tools. Before SOLIDWORKS Composer, all changes to product data required time-consuming manual revisions of documentation.

By using SOLIDWORKS Composer, your entire organization can automate and integrate the documentation process. This not only reduces costs, but also improves the quality and consistency of all documentation that you create throughout the life cycle of each product.

With SOLIDWORKS Composer importing data directly from your designs and updates documents and animations automatically, you can start your documentation earlier in the process.


With SOLIDWORKS Composer technology, manufacturing organizations can leverage existing 3D CAD data to streamline development of technical communication content and create more compelling documentation with higher impact. You can start your product communication deliverables sooner, update them faster, and complete them with the product design, giving you lower costs and improved time to market.
