The Digger is Your Friend!

In SolidWorks Composer, the Digger is a great tool to use for highlighting various components in your assemblies. Just like a detail view, the Digger can be used to zoom in on components in relation to your entire assembly. However, the digger also has some additional features like the x-ray and onion skin that can add some extra horsepower to your deliverables. Moreover, the digger offers various customization controls to ensure that you are able to create image outputs and animations exactly to your specifications to convey the right message. Particularly when creating manufacturing assembly instructions or user manuals, the digger can provide additional detail and information for your audience to use which can improve customer satisfaction and also reduce documentation quality related issues. Check out the videos below to see how you can start taking full advantage of the Digger in your Composer documents.
