SOLIDWORKS Automation Features

Powerful SOLIDWORKS automation

Advanced Drawing Automation

Save time and boost product quality by automatically creating accurate manufacturing drawings.

  • Control sheets, views, annotation text, annotation positions, layers, break lines and custom properties
  • Generation reports provide a complete audit trail of drawing values
  • Save drawings out in additional file formats, such as PDF, JPEG, DWF and DWG


DriveWorks creates new copies of your master SOLIDWORKS files and all changes are made to these files, saved into new locations based on your rules.

  • Your master files are never modified or overwritten
