Automate Your Design Using SOLIDWORKS

SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD software gives designers and engineers powerful tools to speed up design variants and automate repetitive design tasks. The Design process can save time and development costs by accelerating the productivity. SOLIDWORKS automation and configuration tools simplify the reuse of existing design data to create new designs. Designers and engineers can configure design data and document quickly by creating new designs. By this way, the product development time is reduced to focus on innovating new products.

 SOLIDWORKS design reuse and automation tools include:
  • Design automation - Streamline the creation of similar parts
  • Parts and Assembly Configuration - Generate simple, complex, or similar versions of your design

Design Automation SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD tools automate repetitive design tasks, benefiting companies making custom products for bid/RFP, as well as high volume manufacturers.
SOLIDWORKS design automation tools include:
  • DriveWorksXpress - Automate and generate infinite variations of a model using rules-based project that runs again and again
  • Design Table - Simple automation using Excel inputs
  • SolidWorks Macros - Automate many tasks with only a few mouse clicks
  • Equations - Users build simple relations and capture design intents
  • Task Scheduler - Schedule and automatically drive off-peak batch processing
  • Microsoft VBA - Generate custom automation using standard industry tools
  • API - Automate Designs using Built In Application Programming Interface

Benefits of Design Automation
  • Elimination of Laborious manual method of calculation and drawing generation
  • Higher Customer Satisfaction
  • Error-free design and Drawing Development Processes
  • Re-use of knowledge
  • Increased Productivity
  • Elimination of bottlenecks in processes for higher efficiency
  • Lease Cost of Ownership
  • Proposal Generation for Least Cost and Time
  • Efficient Man Power Utilization
  • Increased availability of time for more productive development of designs and technologies
