Every company starts small.
Some companies choose to stay small.
We want to support those companies.
To do that, we created a more affordable license for Drew: the Solo license.
Drew is our drawing automation add-in for SOLIDWORKS.
SOLIDWORKS hasn’t really improved the drawing tools over the last few years, so we decided to improve them ourselves.
We help you capture your company preferences in software, then let you create drawings with those preferences.
That allows you to start and edit 2D drawings twice as fast.
We have just released another update for Drew: version 2.8
Until now, we only supported floating network licenses.
We did that because most engineers do not spend 100% of their time making drawings. This way, multiple engineers can share a Drew license.
But we heard of multiple small companies (often with a single engineer) and freelancers who would like to use Drew.
So we have added the Solo license in this update.
For €590 a year (or €59 a month), you can now purchase a Drew Solo license.
You then get access to all features within Drew, without limitations. You will also receive all updates.
The main difference is that a Solo license is locked to a single computer, whereas a Business license is floating and can be shared among colleagues.
The second difference is the way we provide support. Of course, we provide support for Solo, but only via email. For Business licenses, we also provide support via phone and chat.

Our goal is to continuously improve Drew.
But we need to make sure that we are working on the correct things. And we need to find bugs quickly.
So we need your feedback.
In this update, we added a feedback form to Drew.
To get started, just tap the speech bubble icon at the top of the task pane:
Now, this simple form pops up.
You just fill in the type of feedback, a title and some details.
You’ll also see some statistics that we will send along with your request.
Your name and email are optional.
Then you just hit Send and your request will be sent directly to our database and our inbox.
We encourage you to send us feedback.
So if you think you found a bug, a typo or some other strange behavior, please let us know.
In this update, we also fixed the following bugs:
We have a lot more planned for the next few updates for Drew.
We’re also working on a way to share your settings in a single click 🙂
