3dVia Composer Tutorials

April 26th, 2009

3dviacomposer_logo3DVIA Composer is part of the Dassault Systemes SolidWorks Corporation Product lineup. 3DVIA Composer is used to create documentation, manuals, instructions etc. for 3d models. 3DVIA saves you from having to take an endless number of screenshots of your completed model for use in an Assembly/Repair manual etc. 3dVia allows you to take snapshots and link these to a final document. If the 3d model/assembly changes in SolidWorks, the images and manual can update automatically.

Anyways, there is a nice tutorial website  (copy of website) setup. Here is a screenshot of it.

 If you want any more assistance or help on 3dVia Composer head over to the SolidWorks Forum (http://forum.solidworks.com). The SolidWorks Forum is an excellent place to learn more about a particular area. After the SolidWorks Knowledge Base (http://customerportal.solidworks.com), its my second port of call for information.
