Aus Pits Discuss Project Development at DriveWorks World 2018
Aus Pits are an experienced precast manufacturing company, headquartered in Victoria, Australia.
They specialise in the supply of custom designed products to all facets of the construction industry, from small subdivisions to major road and infrastructure projects nationwide. These include: electrical and communication pits, trade waste, storm water drainage and covers.
At DriveWorks World 2018, we were joined by their Systems Developer, Daniel Prusac, who told us more about their project and future plans.
Developing the Project
“Aus Pits have recently started using DriveWorks and we’re currently in the development phase. We plan to completely automate our design process using DriveWorks and then integrate the software with our quoting package.”
Creating Rules and Logic
“The project that we’re developing enables us to extract data from an Excel spreadsheet and bring it in to DriveWorks in order to drive our SOLIDWORKS models.
In order to do this, we’re using a mix of DriveWorks features, including:
• Variables (Assembly List Item and Assembly Specifications List).
• Constants (Specification Tabs Visible).
• Specification PowerPack (Assembly Depth).
• Specification Macros (Run Specification Form and Select Specification).
• Specification Host Control.
We’re also using a mix of Constants and Variables to pass data between Parent and Child Specifications. This allows our Child Specifications to automate different sections of our SOLIDWORKS models.” explains Daniel.
