3DVIA Composer V6R2013x:
This podcast covers the new features released in the most recent build of 3DVIA Composer. Topics covered:
- Overview of the What's New
- Browser Support (HTML Publish)
- Usability/Efficiency enhancements
- 3D Tool Library
- Installation and Supported OS
Unlike SolidWorks, 3DVIA Composer tends to ship their major updates on a 6 month release cycle instead of the industry standard yearly release. Typically the releases are very focused and workflow-centric, addressing how to make creating content efficient.
2013x has brought wider support for the HTML publishing, offering support across a wider range of browsers. In addition to a number of enhancements to existing functionality, they have expanded the 3D tool library for outlining various assembly or procedural processes.
For those of us who import data into composer from CAD, the new import profiles will automate the "death by import checkbox" menu. It is another solid release and I am sure existing users will be happy to see some of their workflows refined. ~Lou
