What is a Blueprint?

You are here:

A Blueprint (formerly called Company Style) captures the drawing style and preferences of a company.

Drew works best if you create:

  • One or two blueprints for your own company
  • One blueprint for each customer that supplied SOLIDWORKS templates or has specific preferences

Why we created Blueprints

We created blueprints because we were making the same choice over and over again while making drawings.

So by capturing these preferences, you have to click less and make fewer choices.

If the answer is going to be the same every time, Drew stores that answer and uses it for each drawing.

As a result, you can create better drawings, faster.

Blueprint settings

A blueprint stores the template that you use for all of your drawings, what type of 3D view you use, which 2D views your prefer, the drawing scales that you allow and more.

Drew settings Company Style details

A style also contains a list of Sheet Sizes. These contain the sheet formats that you are currently working with, plus a few other handy settings.
