SOLIDWORKS Composer is a SOLIDWORKS tool to create high-quality graphical assets from the 3D CAD designs for technical and marketing documentation.
It is used to make manufacturing assembly instructions, product manuals, installation instructions, service manuals, training guides, marketing brochures, and sales bidding kits. The available graphics vary from 2D content to interactive animations.
According to the package, SOLIDWORKS Composer allows users to interact with a model, use custom APIs to customize the player, launch CAD files batch conversion, support PMI data, and identify design errors.
CATIA is a multi-platform software kit for CAD/CAM/CAE, PLM and 3D, created by the French company Dassault Systèmes.
Commonly referred to as a 3D PLM software suite, CATIA supports all stages of product development, including conceptualization, design, engineering and manufacturing. CATIA facilitates collaborative engineering across disciplines around its 3DEXPERIENCE platform, including surfacing & shape design, electrical, fluid and electronic systems design, mechanical engineering and systems engineering. CATIA facilitates the design of electronic, electrical, and distributed systems such as fluid and HVAC systems, all the way to the production of documentation for manufacturing.
A CAD file is an output of a CAD software, containing key information about the designed object: its geometry and topology representation, 3D model hierarchy, metadata, and visual attributes depending on the format of the file.Read more
