Start ten new drawings with one click

If you have to create dozens of simple drawings, Drew automates 80% of that.

See how it works

Drew can create batches of drawings in two ways:

  1. For all models in a folder 
  2. For all components in an assembly 

In both cases, we only create new drawings for models that have no drawing yet. We create up to ten drawings at a time.

Which items are added to each new drawing?

Our blueprints contain dozens of your drawing preferences. When Drew starts a new drawing for you, it can add:

  • Your drawing template
  • The default Sheet Size / sheet format in that blueprint
  • A sheet name
  • A 3D view
  • One or more 2D views (rotated for straight weldments)
  • A scaled flat pattern view for sheet metal parts
  • Outer dimensions (+ angle dimensions for weldments, thickness dimension for sheet metal)
  • A bill of materials (for assemblies)
  • A cut list (for weldments)

Besides the template and sheet format, all items are optional.

The Drew taskpane

We have a task pane for all editing options + a toolbar for all batch tools.

When Drew has started (up to) ten drawings, you can make quick changes like adding a view, adding important dimensions, or adding a cross-section. Saving only takes a single click because Drew saves the drawing next to the part or assembly and with the same name.

If you are making a drawing for a multibody part, you can create a sheet for each body with one click. Or a 1:1 flat pattern for each sheet metal body.

Automatic dimensions

Drew can add outer dimensions to drawing views so you don’t have to

When you create body sheets, Drew attempts to add dimensions, like the length and width of rectangular contours, diameters of circular contours and thickness of sheet metal. For non-straight weldment ends, Drew will add two angle dimensions.

About automatic dimensions

Weldment drawings in a few clicks

Creating a sheet for every unique body is boring work. We’ll do it for you

Drew can add a sheet per body and add views and dimensions. For straight weldments, we even rotate the body so it lays flat on the sheet. Sheet metal bodies get a flat pattern plus a thickness dimension, all according to your preferences.
