This is the tool which allows you to create graphical content for all of your Technical and Marketing Documentation directly from your 3D CAD data and when the design changes, the graphical content updates accordingly. This link to the original CAD means that the technical documentation (used for anything from assembly instructions to user manuals to marketing) can be started at a much earlier stage in the development cycle and will always be accurate to the latest design.

Also, the latest version of 3DVIA Composer has a brand new interface with a CommandManager and a context shortcut toolbar (similar to the S key in SOLIDWORKS). To have a look at the latest version, give us a call on 01926 623160.
