Free monthly update

Every month we add new functionality, improve the user interface and squash bugs that we and our users found. This is what we are currently working on:
  • Tables

    Drew is already able to automatically add a cut list if the model is a weldment. Soon you can automatically add a BOM for every assembly

  • 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.

Recently added

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

    Drew recognizes sheet metal parts and even multi-body parts. With just one click you can add an empty page with a flat pattern at scale 1:1 for each body.

  • Blocks + notes

    Annotations enables you to add standard notes to a 2D drawing. Drew adds these to their position of preference, automatically or only when you want it.

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 Company Styles.

How are my preferences saved?

Drew will store your Company Styles 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 Company Styles.

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

For each sheet metal body, Drew adds a sheet (without background) and a 1:1 flat pattern.
