Why does SOLIDWORKS insist on so many popups? You're going to pick the same template and sheet size 90% of the time. So we automate as many of those popups as we can with Drew.
We store your preferences in blueprints and you can create a blueprint for each customer or each project that has its own way of working. Then you start a new drawing from a blueprint in one click.
Blueprints contain dozens of your drawing preferences. When Drew starts a new drawing for you, it can add:
Besides the template and sheet format, all items are optional.
After Drew starts up a new drawing, you can make quick changes. Adding or removing a view or table takes only one click. Drew then updates the sheet scale (when necessary) and shifts all views to make the drawing fit onto the sheet.
We have automated dozens of actions down to one click. Change the sheet size, add outer dimensions, export a drawing, find all missing balloons, the list goes on.
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.
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.
