Create interactive product documentation, animation, technical illustrations and more by reusing digital product definition data including 3D design data and bills-of-material information, CATIA Composer revolutionizes the product documentation process for enterprises of all sizes.
With its easy-to-use, desktop content-creation system, CATIA Composer effectively automates processes that are crucial for success in the marketplace.
Before CATIA Composer, the deliverable production process was a costly, error-prone process which had to be repeated, usually from the start, for any product change.
Now, by using CATIA Composer, enterprises can quickly and easily automate their deliverable production processes while reducing costs and improving quality. CATIA Composer allows production of product documentation to be concurrent with the design of the product.
CATIA Composer can be used by non-technical users and does not require CAD knowledge or training. Intelligent views permit complex product procedures to be effectively communicated using a minimum of text. Views can be annotated and labeled in any way and format the user wishes. In addition, CATIA Composer permits the creation of styles which can be applied to any content to ensure visual consistency.
Input data can come from any 3D CAD system and can be maintained in the file system or in any PLM system. Outputs from CATIA Composer are industry-standard file formats, including PDF, HTML, AVI and graphics formats like SVG and CGM.
Animations, including kinematics and reverse-kinematics, as well as high-resolution image outputs such as SVG and CGM files, can be created easily. Producing 2D line art is quick and easy with CATIA Composer’s built-in technical illustration capabilities. CATIA Composer even permits users to document the product while it may still be incomplete and then later update all deliverables without the need to re-work those deliverables.
CATIA Composer requires no programming skills or other specialized capabilities to produce any of its output deliverables.
With 3DVIA Safe, content creators can manage access control when playing content with CATIA Composer Player and also use patented technology to prevent copying or theft of the intellectual property contained in CATIA Composer-created deliverables.
3DVIA Sync and 3DVIA Sync Integration
With 3DVIA Sync, changes in metadata, geometry, BOMs or manufacturing information can be updated on the desktop in CATIA Composer deliverables, guaranteeing accurate and consistent information. 3DVIA Sync Integration adds the ability to automatically regenerate deliverables created by CATIA Composer when the underlying product data changes.
3DVIA Check and 3DVIA Path Planning
3DVIA Check offers dynamic and static clash detection, allowing users to quickly qualify service and assembly procedures.
3DVIA Path Planning delivers the ability to automatically create assembly and disassembly paths for parts and subassemblies to avoid collisions with the rest of the assembly. 3DVIA Path Planning allows content creators to plan and guarantee the ability to access components within the assembly to service or repair them.
