Animations provide an extra visual representation of how an assembly can be put together, taken apart, and shows the order in which parts are added. Animations compliment exploded views incredibly well and help manufacturers and assemblers understand exactly how the components come together. Animations also serve as a great marketing tool, as they can show off the complexities of the design as well as how refined the final product is. In this lesson, an Animation will be created in SOLIDWORKS Composer by exploding additional components in this assembly.

Happy #Eclipse2017 month! Everyone in the continental United States will see at least a partial solar eclipse on August 21, so even if you’re not traveling to experience “totality,” you’ve got something to look forward to. Here at GSC, all employees have been issued a pair of quality “eclipse glasses” so they can safely look at the Sun during the partial eclipse. However, a colleague wanted to use binoculars to get a closer look and asked me if that was possible.

In today’s blog, we’ll be going further in depth to prepare your model for asset generation by diving into Viewport Properties in SOLIDWORKS Composer. With Viewport Properties, we’ll go through how certain Lighting properties affect your actors. In addition, we’ll see what some of the Property Pane Controls do, which will help when trying to either Copy an Appearance to another actor, or Setting a Neutral Property! Before diving into Viewport Properties, there’s one Document Property we want to

One of our favorite things about SOLIDWORKS Composer is the way you can take your images to a whole new level, with the ability to create content that you can navigate quickly and easily. So how can we do that? The first thing to do is to create some image views. This highlights another great feature of using SOLIDWORKS Composer.

It is common practice to update parts and assemblies, but in a SOLIDWORKS Composer file, it is difficult to make substantial design changes since it is not a native SOLIDWORKS CAD software. However, it is simple to update SOLIDWORKS Composer actors and assemblies. All you have to do is select the components, and then choose “Update”. This relieves the headache of needing to update everything externally in SOLIDWORKS. In this lesson, individual actors as well as the whole assembly will be updated to show the updating capabilities of SOLIDWORKS Composer.

Exploded views can be created in SOLIDWORKS Composer and are incredibly helpful when trying to show all the components used in an assembly, or for showing how to assemble, disassemble, or repair the assembly. Exploded views can also be used for other purposes such as showing off a design by a marketing team. In this lesson, an exploded view and detailing the individual components will be shown by adding labels to each part in the assembly.

Since vector graphics scale without distorting the image, they are very useful when trying to insert images into other documents, such as a PDF or a Word doc. Vector images also allow for a clean professional look for marketing purposes. In this lesson, you'll see detail views added to this exploded view and create a vector image of both of them.

The Digger tool is a patented technology in SOLIDWORKS Composer that allows you to zoom into a part, create detail views and fade away actors in order to see internal components or mechanisms. Using the Digger tool allows users to easily create detail views of interior components of an assembly without having to manually hide actors in the assembly. Additionally, this tool helps give a better understanding of actors and assemblies with its ability to zoom into any specific portion of a part or assembly. In this lesson, you'll see how the Digger tool can be used to create multiple detail views of both the exterior and some interior areas of an assembly.
