3DVIA Composer is Becoming SOLIDWORKS Composer

It's
official, 3DVIA Composer is being re-branded as SolidWorks Composer. “What does this mean to me and
why the need for such a change?“ is a very logical question.
Well for starters, moving forward, there will be one annual release, followed
by multiple service packages consistent with the SOLIDWORKS release schedule. This means that you will now be able to upgrade your CAD and technical
publication tool simultaneously. So, the next major release will be SolidWorks
Composer 2014 launched with SOLIDWORKS 2014 in the fall of 2013. 

A key
point to note: there is no change in functionality. However, SolidWorks
Composer will employ the SOLIDWORKS licensing activation to streamline and
automate the licensing process. You will be able to download SolidWorks
Composer from the Customer Portal and a media kit will be available later
in the year. Also,
SOLIDWORKS Composer can be installed and function on a machine without
SolidWorks.

  1. This makes a lot of sense to me!
    Just like the COSMOS name; which had some recognition I’ll admit, but ultimately SOLIDWORKS Simulation makes a lot more sense.
