New for 2012: 3DVIA Composer Highlights

SolidWorks isn't the only thing that's been enhanced for 2012–3DVIA Composer has lots of great new features as well. New visual effects showcase product features in print, animation, and online, and new Web templates quickly create high-quality, interactive web pages at the touch of a button.

Other highlights include the ability to

  • Adjust depth-of-field to focus on specific components
  • Use glow effects to highlight areas of interest
  • Add shadows to 2D panels for a three-dimensional appearance
  • Create more lifelike visuals using precision control of part-to-part shadows and ambient occlusion
