Design automation and knowledge capture
Every design follows rules, based on experience, company
standards, materials used, or manufacturing capabilities.
SOLIDWORKS lets you capture some of these rules by adding
geometric relationships, equations, configurations, and design
tables – or a combination of all of them. Many of these
techniques only work well if you know in advance what your
customer will ask for and all the possible permutations.
DriveWorks Solo uses a different approach. With simple and
straightforward rules and decision logic, you can easily capture
and reuse all of your design, manufacturing, and cost
estimation knowledge, and generate new variations of your
designs with proposal documents, over and over again.
Set up ONCE and RUN again and again
A DriveWorks Solo design automation project is easy to set up,
easy to manage, and easy to use. By following these four easy
steps, you can set up and then run a project as many times as
you like, fill out the form with your customer’s specifications,
and quickly generate multiple new versions of your designs
along with any manufacturing or sales documentation.
