Join Justin Flett for an in-depth discussion in this video Composer terminology, part of Learning SOLIDWORKS Composer.
- [Instructor] Continuing on with the same file set,…we're now going to take a quick look…at some very commonly used Composer terminology.…Now, throughout this course and throughout using Composer,…I'll be commonly referring to actors.…Now, an actor is really anything we have control over.…And I have two separate types of actors here.…I have what we like to call geometry actors,…and that's really anything with some 3D geometry behind it,…such as my propeller here, or my motor, and so forth.…
So this geometry actor is essentially the same…as a component or a part in our CAD assemblies.…In addition to that, we also have what we call…collaborative actors.…And, collaborative actors, we also have full control over,…but they're things such as text, labels,…call outs, and so forth.…So, for example, my labels over here would be an example…of a collaborative actor.…Another term I'll commonly be using is my viewport.…
That, of course, is just my 3D workspace…that I'm seeing here in the middle of my screen.…And, I also have properties.…
