HTML. animated maintenance instructions. PNG. sales and marketing tools. JPG. 3DVIA Composer is an ideal complement to content- creation tools end-users are already familiar with. and PDF. interactive product visualizations. Product information stored in ENOVIA systems can be directly accessed using the power of ENOVIA 3DLive. 3DVIA Composer quickly and easily automates creation of technical illustrations. A complete system for maximum productivity 3DVIA Composer is a flexible and easy to use desktop content creation system that streamlines the creation of 3D product documentation. With its easy-to-use desktop content-creation system. 3DVIA Composer can be easily integrated with any enterprise information system. interactive 3D animations. Intelligent views permit complex product procedures to be effectively communicated using minimal text. 3DVIA Composer ties desktop and enterprise systems together for both content consum- ers and content creators. 4 . such as Microsoft® Office® applica- tions. and TIF files. can be created easily. 3DVIA Composer users can intuitively navigate and filter the exact 3D product configuration stored in ENOVIA. Immediate productivity with long term value 3DVIA Composer allows non-technical users to create associative 2D and 3D product deliverables directly from digital product data. as well as high-resolution raster images including BMP. Producing 2D line art as SVG and CGM files is a snap with 3DVIA Composer’s built-in technical illu- stration capabilities. and marketing communica- tions. 3DVIA Composer does not require CAD knowledge or training. technical illustrations. Being easy to learn and use. training applications. Views can be annotated and labeled according to user specifications. 3DVIA Composer permits the creation of styles which can be applied to any content to ensure visual consistency.

content creators can manage access control when playing content with 3DVIA Composer Player and can also use patented "Secure3D" technology to prevent copying or theft of the intellectual property.3DVIA Composer allows users to control and manage access to their intellectual proper- ty. 3DVIA Composer Player is a free utility that allows you to distribute 3DVIA Compos- er content to end-users. With "Right Manager" settings. Figure 3: 3DVIA Composer Player Figure 4: 3DVIA Composer Player ActiveX Figure 5: 3DVIA Composer Player Plug-in for Adobe Reader 5 . Interactive content can also be directly published to 3DVIA.com where the users can experience the content on-line. 3DVIA Composer Player offers the ability to provide your customers and partners with an interactive 3D product experience.

XML-based associativ- ity between 3DVIA Composer and any number of enterprise systems. a "Publishing Deployment" can be offered through the 3DVIA Composer Player Pro Publishing agreement and order form. and display -. or manufacturing information can be updated on the desktop in 3DVIA Composer deliverables. 3DVIA Composer Player Pro is the only authorized method for “enterprise deployment” of advanced ActiveX applications within a controlled environment where computers ac- cessing the application are sharing the same network. removing the need for the end users to have a 3DVIA Compos- er Player Pro license. 3DVIA Enterprise Sync offers all of the capabilities of 3DVIA Sync plus the ability to control the processes through a command-line interface. This enables the development of 3D interactive custom applications. interact. or the In- ternet. 3DVIA Composer Player Pro Publishing provides a publishing solution for situations where a 3DVIA Composer Player Pro “Enterprise Deployment” is not possible. The Publishing Deployment mechanism provides the licensee with a special programmatic handshake with the em- bedded ActiveX controls. creating lifelike experiences anywhere the 3DVIA Composer Player can be used.3DVIA Composer Player Pro provides a very powerful applications programming inter- face (API) to the 3DVIA Composer Player. such as when an application is distributed via portable/removable media.

3DVIA Check and 3DVIA Path Planning make product deliverables more useful and instructive by validating procedures that can be performed in the real world. allowing users to quickly qualify service and assembly procedures. 3DVIA Composer Check offers dynamic and static clash detection. reducing training needs while avoiding costly damage to sensitive parts. 3DVIA Path Planning delivers the ability to automatically create complex assembly and disassembly paths for parts to avoid colli- sions with the main assembly.

Figure 11: Ambient Occlusion 8 . providing users with a significant advantage when content must be localized for delivery across the globe.  Lifelike Experience o Ambient Occlusion: Ambient occlusion adds another level of realism to your 3D renderings by taking into account the attenuation of light due to occlusion.3DVIA Composer DOMAINS & V6R2011x ENHANCEMENTS 3DVIA Composer V6R2011x offers a robust collection of enhancements in several key areas:  Global Collaborative Innovation Figure 10: Unicode o Unicode: Developing and deploying 3DVIA Composer content to global au- diences has become easier with the addition of Unicode character encoding in V6R2011x. Using this method gives your renderings a softer and more natural appearance. Unicode allows for more consistent representation and handling of in- ternational writing systems.

Figure 13: Depth of Field 9 . improving the interpolation of light and adding additional realism to your 3DVIA Composer renderings. per-pixel lighting lets you dif- fuse the reflection of light on your model surfaces.o Per-Pixel lighting: Also known as Phong shading. Figure 12: Per-Pixel Lighting o Depth of Field: The new depth of field functionality allows you to blur portions of the screen away from the camera focal point. With this you can better draw focus to specific geometry actors. while deemphasizing elements of the background.

allowing you to even more clearly communicate your design details. This gives your images a whole new level of visual appeal. so you can more smoothly blend images with the background. Using alpha channels lets you to control the transparency of a raster image.B 10 . Figure 17: Layered Rendering .A Figure 16: Layered Rendering . it’s a snap. This enables line styles to be defined by layer for clear definition of hid- den assembly components in technical illustrations. o Alpha Channels: The addition of alpha channels in 3DVIA Composer V6R2011x helps improve your raster images to be better than ever. Traditionally this process has been a manual and time consuming process. Figure 14: Alpha Channel Inactive Figure 15: Alpha Channel Active  Lower cost of ownership o Layered Rendering: The new layered rendering feature in the technical illustration workshop allows layers to be custom defined and prioritized in vector graphic output. Now with 3DVIA Composer V6R2011x.

bill of Material hotspots can now be gener- ated for either CGM or SVG output formats. Per Actor generates silhouettes for actor perimeters. and link properties that help more clearly define custom sets of actors in vector output. o Custom Hotspots: Hotspots are groups of actors. Figure 18: Custom Hotspots o Silhouettes: The new Silhouette method options let you choose from three differ- ent silhouette styles. And the Model method generates silhouettes for perimeters around contiguous actors. Now in 3DVIA Composer V6R2011x you can define custom hotspots and include them in vector output – to help create an even richer in- teractive experience. Additionally. Crest generates silhouettes for actor perimeters and signifi- cant actor edges.

Y. Not only does this make your applications more visually appealing. Figure 22: Customizable Compass 12 . a new customizable compass has been added. and Z axis.o Customizable Compass: To make it even easier to navigate around 3DVIA Com- poser applications. Now you can choose to configure the compass just like a collaborative actor. Previously the compass would only display the position of actors in relation to their X. but it also helps to better visualize the orientation of the geometry being displayed.
