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.
Autodesk Inventor is a CAD application for 3D mechanical design, simulation, visualization and documentation. It is built on ShapeManager, geometric modeling kernel by Autodesk.
Inventor enables 2D and 3D data integration in a single environment, virtually representing the final product. It allows users to check the form, fit, and functions of the product before it is built. The application provides strong parametric, direct edit and freeform modeling tools as well as multi-CAD translation abilities.
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
