We're considering a Composer license and using it to generate content for our tech service group, website, etc. The price has come down quite a bit, and we're in a position where we feel it'd be worthwhile to take advantage of the existing CAD data. However, our VAR has had difficulty providing any references of other companies of similar size (100 employees, a small engineering staff) that use it successfully. Search around the web and it's very difficult to find customer testimonials or other

Can anyone please tell me how to take center section plane in composer? Like in SolidWorks we can create custom mid plane and use it for mid section plane. Jive Software Version: 2018.13.0.0_jx, revision: 20190118155848.7eaeabc.release_2018.13.0-jx

Is there a way to change composer player background frequently via API, such as 30 times per minute. Thanks for any reply. Jive Software Version: 2018.13.0.0_jx, revision: 20190118155848.7eaeabc.release_2018.13.0-jx

I'm trying to insert a callout in Composer after using the Digger tool to create an image. The leader is hidden behind the image however. Is there a way to move it in front of the image?

In technical Illustration Mode (or any other mode with outlines),I get phantom lines depending on my zoom level. In the model, this is a sheet metal panel, only 1mm thick, and the lines you are seeing are from the welded ribs or attached parts behind it. In short, solid bodies are flush with the back wall of the visible panel.

Has any had the problem with saving animation files in composer (.smgSce) and attempted to reload it and nothing loads? If so any solution? Also i found there is a bug when scrubbing a newly loaded animation.

I want to simulate the movement of the crankshaft, the rod, the plunger. But I did not find the binding relationship to make them move. Tags:none(add)solidworks composer

I'm running into issues with CAD Files that are being updated by our Engineers. When I open a project, Composer notifies me that the CAD File has been modified and to either reload it or open the project and update using the Update Geometry function. The only way to know which file it is (I have multiple assemblies in my project), I have to choose "Yes" to reload.

Magnetic line behavior When googling about it, I came across a video on YouTube that shows the creation of a magnetic line. In the video, the user shows that you are able to draw the magnetic line sketch right through some callouts, and those callouts will automatically snap on to the magnetic line.

Hi, I'm trying to produce assembly instructions for my FRC robotics team and heard that composer is the way to go, but when I try and load my assembly, I can only see two of the parts. Changing visibility to show all does nothing. I have absolutely no idea how to use this tool so if this is something painfully obvious, I'm sorry, but I would appreciate any help you can provide. Thanks!

BUT with Version 2019, the Composer offers the last value, that was used, automatically as the default value. Jive Software Version: 2018.10.0.1_jx, revision: 20181102150941.22e8dc7.release_2018.10.0-jx

Replicate ground perforation I have activated the GROUND option in Composer so it would replicate the floor. But when I transform the rods location via Translate tool, and lower them to the floor, the ground automatically moves too, so it maintains its location relative to the actors that I moved.

Re: When i open some parts in composer im getting black lines There's a couple of things that you can do to reduce/eliminate these aretfacts. The first thing is to change the Geometry Compression setting to Low (see below).

I have to save a lot of *.smg files as *.3ds and if i i could do it with a single mouse click per file that would be nice or even with a batch that would be great For some reason however - if i try to save as *.3ds via api i always get the return value "false" which indicates it failed. Maybe i´m doing something wrong - or It´s a limitation to avoid using it as a batch tool and to buy composer sync.

There is a dummy assembly in the tree which seems to be the actual Solidworks BOM. If I delete this dummy assembly the BOM disappears and I cant generate the actual BOM This is the normal behavior of SOLIDWORKS / Composer.

Is there a way to make an animation directly from my existing views. I know that I can drag a view, one at a time, into the timeline, but how could I "drag" them all at once, say with a preset time of 2 seconds between each view? I've got training in a few weeks and can ask then, but I see that hitting the play button in Composer Player gives the end user a simple animation of all views. I'd like to have that available to the end user as an avi file, and instead of having to copy each view at a

Some of our parts use "Document Name" under the Config Properties->Bill of Materials Options, but some use User Specified Name. Either way we need to pull whatever value will show up in a BOM to show up in Composer. I believe I just need to get User Specified Name into a Custom Property and pull that property, but I don't know how to get that information into a Custom Property.

We are experiencing an odd problem: Our IT guy plugged in his very old 3Dconnexion SpaceNavigator and it worked straight away in our new installation of Solidworks Composer 2018. We, the users, have purchased the 3Dconnexion SpaceMouse Compact and these do not seem to work with Composer 2018. The 3D mouse works correctly on the same Win 10 - PC with the trainer software. Therefore, it is not an issue with missing connection or missing newest driver.

Animation Library Issue If i use the animation library to load an actor and then move on and do the same to another actor, for some reason it changes the location of the first actor. any suggestions on how to fix this?

I have an animation where the camera view goes from a side view with camera perspective off, then pans around to an isometric view with camera perspective on. It seems to keep perspective off until it has reached the final camera position, then turn perspective on. The actor is about 20ft long so this causes quite a noticeable "jump". Even when I simply turn perspective on/off the view changes significantly, zooming in an obnoxious amount to the actors.

No, this is not possible. But you can use multiple detail views (Workshop High Resolution Image (pixel-based), Workshop Technical Illustration (vector-based))

I am having trouble being able to save my SolidWorks file as a Composer file without having missing parts. I have an assembled elevator model, so it has a lot of components in it. When I open the file in Composer it is missing a lot of parts from the assembly. Is it because there are too many parts?
