3DVIA Composer V6R2010

A rendering with callouts, created in 3DVIA Composer V6R2010.

Part of Dassault Systemes’ 3DVIA portfolio, 3DVIA Composer lets you reuse your CAD files to produce animations, technical illustrations, presentations, and interactive instructional manuals. In this exercise, the two-week trial software performs handsomely on an IGES file from 3D ContentCentral, only to fall flat when confronted with a SolidWorks file (of the same two-part assembly, downloaded from the same site).

Update: Garth from 3DVIA Composer team explained that the trial version I downloaded for this video was compiled without a SolidWorks translator because including it would make the download too big. If you happen to use the commercial version of 3DVIA Composer, please let me know how well it handles imported SolidWorks files.

For a review of 3DVIA Composer by Josh Mings (better known as SolidSmack), published January 1, 2009, please read the article here.
