Improve your technical communication with 3D product manufacturing information, automated creation of inspection documents and repurposing of design data for high quality graphics, illustrations and interactive 3D.

Communicate your designs to any audience.

The easy-to-use tools and intuitive product approach let you work directly from 3D CAD data to make high quality illustrations, photorealistic images, and even interactive animations without waiting for a physical prototype.

Even non-technical users can leverage existing product designs with SOLIDWORKS Composer and create associative 2D and 3D deliverables that automatically stay up-to-date with the latest design changes. You can start producing a range of technical communication graphical assets [such as 3D interactive animations, 2D line art images (SVG, EPS, CGM), and high-resolution raster images (BMP, JPG, PNG, and TIF files)] earlier in the design process, helping to lower costs and speed time-to-market.

Using SOLIDWORKS Composer, your illustrations and interactive videos will be clear, crisp, and user-friendly,

Get your products to market before the competition.

Concurrent design saves time

Create technical communications from the start of product development and update them automatically so that materials are finished and delivered simultaneously with your product, accelerating time-to market by considerable margins.

Share the workload

Everyone from manufacturing to customer services can produce their own artwork for technical communications, assembly instructions, service procedures, parts catalogues, training manuals and marketing materials.

Intelligent design information recall

SOLIDWORKS Composer can retain critical design information already built into CAD models (e.g. part numbers). Manufacturers no longer have the difficult job of manually re-entering this information – Saving time, money, and reducing errors.

Easily create artwork and interactive content directly from CAD data.

Technical illustrations

Produce exploded views, vector and raster graphics, shaded illustrations or silhouette, wireframe, and flat renderings directly using the CAD model.

Encourage discovery

SOLIDWORKS Composer makes it possible to promote your products with rich full-colour graphics and interactive 3D animations created directly from 3D CAD data. Give your customers the opportunity to experience your products virtually before they buy—a highly effective way to help close a sale.

Better content management.

Sync for success.

Manage updates for all SOLIDWORKS Composer content with SOLIDWORKS Composer Sync and SOLIDWORKS Composer Enterprise Sync.

Get it right

Ensure accurate, consistent product communication with SOLIDWORKS Composer Sync, including metadata, geometry, BOMs, and manufacturing information.

Inbuilt flexibility

Integrate with other software, such as product lifecycle management (PLM) systems, with SOLIDWORKS Composer Enterprise Sync command-line interface.

Customer success story: Claxton Engineering

Designed, engineered, and developed by Innova Systems customer, Claxton Engineering, this modular conductor recovery system offers a safe working load (SWL) lifting capacity of up to 300 metric tonnes, provided by hydraulic cylinders with a dedicated hydraulic power unit, and can recover pipe in 40ft lengths. This high lift capacity has also been designed to skid efficiently in both the ’X’ and ‘Y’ axes between each well slots under its own power.

WellRaizerTM comprises both a static and travelling elevator which grip the tubular sections via two powered slip packages. The unit also incorporates material handling cranes to remove reliance on the main crane for smaller operations.
