What are the 3 Main Benefits to Using SOLIDWORKS Composer?

Friday May 10, 2024 at 8:00am

3 Reasons to Use SOLIDWORKS Composer

  1. Save Time & Reduce Costs
  2. Create Interactive Documentation for Modern Consumers
  3. User-Friendly Interface for all Users

Businesses across the world harness the power of SOLIDWORKS Composer to assist with the design and manufacture of products, through the effective creation of technical documentation and assembly manuals.

So let's explore the three key benefits of SOLIDWORKS Composer and why businesses across industries are still adopting SOLIDWORKS.


One of the primary reasons businesses choose SOLIDWORKS Composer is due to its ability to streamline the documentation creation process, while significantly reducing costs and time investments.

Traditional methods often require a finished product or working prototype, both of which can be expensive and time-consuming to produce. However, with SOLIDWORKS Composer, we can bypass these requirements.

Instead of relying on physical prototypes, all that's needed is CAD data. This data can be used to begin creating documentation even in the early stages of product development.

Since Composer works concurrently with your CAD data, any updates or changes made to the CAD files automatically reflect in the documentation, ensuring that the information remains accurate and up-to-date throughout the product lifecycle.

Additionally, by eliminating the need for physical prototypes, businesses can avoid the costs associated with studio photography, as well as the time spent trying to capture the perfect shot!

This cost and time efficiency make SOLIDWORKS Composer an attractive option for large and small businesses alike who are looking to optimise their design documentation processes.

The evolving landscape of technical communication demands more innovative and interactive methods of delivering information to consumers.

SOLIDWORKS Composer meets this demand by enabling the creation of interactive documentation that goes beyond traditional printed materials.

In today's digital age, consumers expect information to be readily accessible and engaging.

With SOLIDWORKS Composer, businesses can create that engaging & interactive documentation digitally, allowing users to interact with 3D models and explore complex instructions through step-by-step procedures.

This interactivity extends to features such as interactive parts lists and assembly hierarchies to empower consumers to navigate product structures and access relevant information with ease.

By leveraging the interactive documentation capability of SOLIDWORKS Composer, you can enhance the user experience, provide timely and relevant information, and cater to the preferences of modern consumers who value interactivity and accessibility.


SOLIDWORKS Composer is easy to use, and its user-friendly interface is specifically designed to cater to non-CAD users.

Accessible to any individual with a basic understanding of creating imagery, SOLIDWORKS Composer also doesn’t require a SOLIDWORKS license or years of CAD training to use.

This accessibility allows a wider range of personnel across teams within businesses to collaborate and contribute to the documentation process without the need for extensive CAD knowledge.

The software offers familiar tools and functionalities, akin to those found in applications like Microsoft PowerPoint, making it intuitive and easy to use for creating graphics, inserting 3D models, and generating bills of materials.

By empowering non-CAD users to create high-quality technical documentation, SOLIDWORKS Composer enables organisations to leverage the expertise of various team members, optimise resource allocation, and expedite the documentation creation process.

In our experience, UK businesses utilise SOLIDWORKS Composer mostly because of its ability to create interactive documentation for modern consumers, user-friendly interface tailored to non-CAD users, and simply because it saves time and helps to reduce costs efficiently.

By leveraging these key advantages, your business can enhance its documentation processes, improve user experiences, and ultimately, drive value across the product lifecycle to deliver high quality products even more rapidly.
