Creating an Engine Assembly Manual with the Help of SolidWorks Composer

Engine cylinder 1 assembly


    Check out this video showing the workflow of how to create a set of assembly instructions using SolidWorks Composer.  Part of an engine assembly from an SAE car will be used to show this procedure.  A collection of images showing each step is created which can then be used in the development of an assembly manual.  The benefit of creating a manual this way is that the actual assembly does not need to be made first because the virtual one can show all the steps.  Also, if the model is ever updated, these updates are easily transferred to the images that were already created.
