Create 2D drawings twice as fast

Drew is the only SOLIDWORKS add-in that helps you create drawings. For any model.

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

We use Drew to create our drawings. Many of our actions and settings are automated which makes it faster to create drawings. We have 19 users and we're excited about the developments and updates to Drew that make us work more effectively.

One-click magic

You don't need to see the same popup twenty times a day.
That is why we automated these actions down to just one click.
  • Create a new drawing with views and tables
  • Add a sheet with views, dimensions and block per (weldment) body
  • Add a sheet with 1:1 flat pattern per sheet metal body
  • Add or remove a projected view (and shift remaining views)
  • Add or remove a table (and shift views)
  • Add outer dimensions
  • Add a note or block at its preferred position
  • Change a sheet size (and fit views)
  • Verify that every body has a balloon
  • Verify that every assembly component has a drawing

Frequently asked questions

How does Drew integrate with SOLIDWORKS?

Drew is an add-in for SOLIDWORKS 2018 and newer. A new tab will appear on the right side of your screen after installation.

Which features are active during a trial?

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.

How do I set up Drew?

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.

How do you save my preferences?

Drew stores your Blueprints in a local text file. You can share this file with your colleagues in a few clicks.

Which items can Drew add to a new drawing?

With one click, you start a new drawing containing:

  • Drawing template
  • Sheet format
  • 3D view
  • 2D view(s)
  • Three outer dimensions
  • A flat pattern view
  • Notes and blocks
  • A BOM for assemblies
  • A cut list for weldments

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.

How does Drew handle weldments and sheet metal?

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.
