DriveWorksXpress is basic Design Automation for Individuals using SOLIDWORKS.

Included with SOLIDWORKS StandardSOLIDWORKS Professional and SOLIDWORKS Premium bundles, DriveWorksXpress allows you to capture and re-use the engineering rules needed to specify, design, manufacture and Engineer-to-Order your products.

With DriveWorksXpress you can automate repetitive tasks and automatically generate design and manufacturing outputs required to create new and variant products. You will save time and be able to specify the products whilst maintaining your engineering controls.

DriveWorksXpress Features & Benefits

Automate your designs

Today customers are demanding products that meet their specific needs. As a result we see more and more product options and variants. Automating repetitive design tasks allows companies to generate more product options and variants while using less of their valuable resources.

Knowledge Capture

The expertise and logic used to generate product designs exists in many disparate locations such as in someone’s notebook or in the memory of a few key individuals. DriveWorksXpress allows a company to capture this critical information and use it to automatically create future product variants.

Capturing and reusing design information reduces the risk that information will be lost, prevents mistakes, and allows information to be reused by others

Automatic creation of parts, assemblies, and drawings

DriveWorksXpress enables the automatic creation of parts, assemblies, and drawings based on predefined design rules. Once the rules are defined designs can be created again and again and again by filling out a simple form telling the software what product options are desired.

Automatically generating parts, assemblies, and drawings by reusing design information allows a company to leverage initial design overhead.
