The latest version of Driveworks Pro enables companies that design and engineer to order to offer their customers and distributors a fast online experience.

The company claims that, with Driveworks Pro, there is a straightforward upgrade path from Driveworksxpress (included in every seat of Solidworks) to the online module of Driveworks Pro, allowing users to design and configure products via the web.

Features of the latest release include: speed and performance integration with Solidworks; the ability to integrate with other company systems; and specification flow web experience.

All four of the software modules available with Driveworks Pro have been updated.

The modules are Driveworks Administrator, Driveworks User, Driveworks Autopilot and Driveworks Live.

The combination of these modules allows companies to extend design automation to other members of the engineering team and to other departments.

Driveworks Administrator sets up the project, capturing parameters that can change, designing the forms (user interface) and building the rules.

Once set up, others can fill out the forms to specify custom products.

Users can be other engineers, non-technical staff, colleagues on the network or external users, who can specify new variations by filling out the forms via the web.

The forms can be integrated within a company’s existing website.

Specifications can be processed by Driveworks Autopilot, taking care of the creation of 3D parts, assemblies, 2D drawings and any documents (DWG, DXF, PDF, Word, Excel or XML) required automatically.

Results such as quotes and e-drawings can be emailed based on rules and even passed to other company systems such as Enterprise PDM.

A website has been created to coincide with the new release.

It allows users to log on and experience Driveworks Live – the online product configurator.

Users that enter their details into Driveworks Live receive an email with a quote, a general arrangement drawing and other manufacturing documentation.
