3DVIA Composer V6R2012 Rendering Enhancements, Visual Effects and HTML Publishing Options

For this blog post, I'd like to take a deeper dive into 3DVIA Composer V6R2012 and show you how to use some of the great new rendering enhancements, visual effects and HTML publishing options mentioned in my previous post.  In particular, I cover the depth of field focal point, the ability to display shadows in all lighting modes, configurable ambient occlusion, the glow lighting effect, Digger Zone rendering enhancements, built-in navigation controls and the new web publishing templates.

As you watch the video, keep in mind that everything I'm doing in 3DVIA Composer is real-time – meaning it's so easy, even a plastics guy can do it!  And if you've been following my blog entries, hopefully you're starting to realize that 3DVIA Composer is the tool for leveraging your 3D CAD data across the enterprise to produce best-in-class assembly instructions, product manuals, parts catalogs, marketing collateral and more.

And if you're a 3DVIA Composer user with some cool models and you'd like to promote your products and company, then you should check out my last blog about promoting your company and products because we can also work with native 3DVIA Composer files.

Thanks for reading…now clear your mind, focus and get that project done!

And I have been extremely fortunate to have developed business acumen that comes from being intimately involved in growing a small engineering software company ~7X in revenues while tripling headcount, successfully executing an IPO and multiple acquisitions, coaching product teams and developing the go-to-market strategy for numerous successful product launches.
