Better collaboration

Capture your preferences easily to minimize in-person explanation. It is the ideal tool when you work with new and temporary employees.

1: You capture your Company Style + those of your customers

2: Drew uses the correct Company Style for every 2D drawing

3: You benefit from the higher consistency of your drawings

Prevent overtime

Use your time more efficiently, especially when the deadline is getting closer

With one click, you start a drawing containing:

  • The right template + sheet format
  • 3D view + 2D views
  • Notes and blocks
  • Cut list for weldments
  • BOM for assemblies 
  • Every weldment body its own sheet with views
  • Every sheet metal body its own sheet with a flat pattern

And the greatest thing is: AutoFit makes every object fit on the sheet.

€990 per year (or €99 per month)

Most engineers don't work on drawings fulltime. Drew uses shared network licenses, so engineers can alternate using each license.

To the shop

Free monthly update

Every 1-2 months we add new functionality, improve the user interface and squash bugs that were found. This is what we are currently working on:
  • Smart review tools

    Verify your drawing with automatic tests before it is reviewed. This accelerates the development proces and decreases the number of iterations needed.

  • Weldments: dimensions, balloons and more

    For Drew 2.2 we will add even more powerful weldment tools. We want to add dimensions, item balloons and link all views to the correct table.

Recently added

In the past months we added the features mentioned below (and many more). Check the News page for all improvements per release.
  • Balloon checker

    Stop manually looking for balloons while doing reviews. Verify with one click that every item in your weldment/assembly drawing has a balloon.

  • 1 click for a sheet per body, subweldment, flat pattern

    Boost your speed for existing drawings as well. Drew now checks your drawing to make sure every body has a sheet and adds all missing ones.

Frequently asked questions

How does Drew integrate with SOLIDWORKS?

Drew is an add-in for SOLIDWORKS 2016 and newer. After installation, a new tab will appear on the right side of your screen.

Which features are active during a trial?

Our opinion is that you should be able to use all features, even during a trial. That is why 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?

Drew will ask you for a license code after installation. You can request a trial code directly from the software or purchase Drew to receive a code via email. When the license code is validated, you will be guided through a short wizard to set up your Blueprints (templates).

How are my preferences saved?

Drew will store your Blueprints in a local text file. Soon you can also store this file on a network drive.

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 views
  • Notes and blocks
  • A BOM for assemblies (added soon)
  • A cut list for weldments

After that you can add or delete views with another single click. Drew makes sure all objects fit on the sheet perfectly again. You can 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 and multiple 2D views. 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.

Drew 2.1 (September 2019) can also do this for existing drawings. So now it only takes one click to add missing body sheets after you have changed the model.
