Making drawings of multibody parts is 100% faster for us thanks to Drew. Now we only need to add dimensions and comments.

1: Capture your drawing styles once in blueprints.
2: Create and edit drawings in seconds using these blueprints.
3: Benefit from the higher consistency of your drawings.
With one click, you start a drawing containing:
And the greatest thing is: AutoFit makes every object fit on the sheet.
So start with two licenses, or ten. We'll gladly help you get started.
Monthly plans available. Yearly plans receive a 16% discount (= 2 free months).
All plans include updates.
Create a sheet per configuration, rename all sheets/views or create a drawing for each assembly component.
Verify your drawing with automatic tests before it is reviewed. This accelerates the development proces and decreases the number of iterations needed.
Drew 2.6 focuses on sheet metal. Delete center marks, hide bend lines, hide bend notes. Plus smart flip (most bends up) and long edge vertical/horizontal.
Add outer dimensions automatically for new drawings or (weldment) body sheets. Or select a view and add two outer dimensions.
Drew is an add-in for SOLIDWORKS 2016 and newer. A new tab will appear on the right side of your screen after installation.
You can use all features during a trial. We only limit the trial time and nothing else. After purchase of one or multiple licenses, you will receive a single license code that is identical for all users.
You can request a trial directly from the software or purchase Drew to receive a code via email. After that, we will guide you through a short wizard to set up your Blueprints / templates.
Drew stores your Blueprints in a local text file. Soon you can also store this file on a network drive.
With one click, you start a new drawing containing:
After that you can add or delete views with another single click. Drew then fits all items on the sheet perfectly again. We store all of your preferences in the Blueprints.
Drew adds a sheet per unique body with a 3D view, multiple 2D views outer dimensions, a balloon and a note or block. All views are then scaled, fitted nicely on the sheet and rotated when necessary. This also works for each subweldment.
For each sheet metal body, Drew adds a sheet (without background) and a 1:1 flat pattern. You can also add a scaled flat pattern to a normal sheet, even including outer dimensions and a bounding box.
This even works for existing drawings. It only takes one click to add missing body sheets after you have changed the model.
