Making drawings of multibody parts is 100% faster for us thanks to Drew. Now we only need to add dimensions and comments.
Martijn Hiddink - Team Leader Technical Design - HoSt
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.
Karel Bastiaan - sheet metal work prep lead
Drew automates the boring bits of making SOLIDWORKS drawings. We show you how we do that in a series of feature highlights (with videos).
On this page, we explain the benefits of Drew, how we minimize risk for our users and what it takes to get started.

Drew is an add-in for SOLIDWORKS 2018 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. You can share this file with your colleagues in a few clicks.
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.
