    DriveWorks-Design-Automation-is-a-Game-Changer-for-Steiner-Technologies-1Steiner Technologies produces a family of automatic back boring tools called the Autofacer. They have been using DriveWorks design automation software since 2010. In a recent blog post, Steiner Technologies explained how DriveWorks has significantly improved their processes to make them faster, better and more cost-efficient.

    Read the full blog post below by Matthew Hoyt from Steiner Technologies to learn how implementing design automation has been a ‘game changer’ for them and the many benefits they’ve seen beyond internal operations.

      Time to Test Drive DriveWorks Design Automation and Sales Configurator Software

      by Christa Prokos on May 5, 2017

      Time-to-Test-Drive-DriveWorks-Design-Automation-and-Sales-Configurator-Software-1Do you have repetitive design tasks that could be automated? Could the products you design be defined by rules? If you answered yes to these questions, it is time to add design automation and sales configurator software to your toolbox—specifically DriveWorks because you can use it in tandem with SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD design software.

      There are two DriveWorks software packages to choose from, DriveWorks Solo and DriveWorks Pro, which can also be used beyond the engineering department by marketing and sales teams. DriveWorks Solo and Pro provide the ability to automatically generate 2D and 3D drawings of your SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD models as well as manufacturing and sales data. Imagine the time and cost this can save your company and the productivity it can add to your day.

        4 Key Ways SOLIDWORKS Stands Out

        by Sean O'Neill on February 15, 2017

        When SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD was first released back in 1995, it was already leveraging some of the core functionality and modeling principles we know today. At that time, it quickly came to prominence as a parametric solid modeler. You could sketch, add rules-based constraints to these sketches, and then extrude them into 3D features. Here’s proof.

        4-crucial-elements-that-make-SOLIDWORKS-different1But what has SOLIDWORKS become, and what has SOLIDWORKS been, in the days that have come to pass? For years – many years, in fact – SOLIDWORKS has given users the ability to make manufacturing drawings and assembled part systems in ways that sync seamlessly with their included parts and one another. Furthermore, as the design and manufacturing world has advanced, SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD has advanced with it. In many cases, it’s proven to be a catalyst of this spheric advancement.

        For those new to (or relatively inexperienced with) SOLIDWORKS, here are four key ways SOLIDWORKS stands out as a CAD platform.
