Export drawings to PDF and DXF in one click

Never forget to add the revision ever again. Use variables like custom properties and today's date to build the path.
Export SOLIDWORKS drawings to PDF and DXF in one click | Drew Feature

See how it works

If you create dozens or hundreds of drawings per week, you need a fast and reliable way to export them. 

With Drew, you store your preferences for each file extension, then export a drawing with one click. 

You can use variables to build up the path and the filename so you never have to add the date or revision ever again.

Build a path using custom properties

Store your export procedures in our blueprints. Use these variables to build the export path:

  • Custom properties like the revision
  • The current directory path
  • The current filename of the model or drawing
  • The date and time - formatted to your taste
  • The sheet name
  • The configuration name

Of course, you can also hardcode (parts of) the export folder.

We're building one-click magic

Our goal it to double your drawing speed. So we're constantly looking for drawing-related tasks that we can automate. Our ultimate goal is being able to achieve a task in one click. 

We're helping engineers create multibody drawings with just a few clicks so they can focus their effort on the hard jobs.

We're helping fabricators and their work prep department with automatic imports and a button to start ten drawings at a time.

Advanced drawing templates

Stop trying to remember the drawing style for each customer

Our goal is to create one-click magic. By storing your preferences in blueprints, instead of showing you popup after popup, we can automate the boring bits of making drawings. When you add a view, Drew shifts the other views to make room. It’s awesome.

About blueprints

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.
