When introduced to DriveWorks, the context usually revolves around CAD automation. Classic demo examples include configuring folding doors, semi-truck trailers, scissor lifts, etc. Many of us see a huge benefit in being able to automate our CAD generation (along with other documents) so we do not have to configure roughly the same model for every single quote.

In DriveWorks, there are several ways to create a specification. When running a specification from DriveWorks Administrator, there is an additional option to run the specification in Test Mode. Test Mode allows you to run your file generation using Generate (On Demand) or Generate (Queued using Model Insight), making it a great way to troubleshoot a project. This article will help clarify the difference between On Demand and Queued using Model Insight to help you better understand when to choose each option.

DriveWorks Live Integration Theme is a theme used by DriveWorks Live that hosts the DriveWorks Live Web API.

In DriveWorks, users can group multiple projects into one top-level project. Certain projects lend themselves to grouping small child projects into one large project. For example, if I wanted a project for a layout of conveyor belts, I could have one project for one conveyor section, and then the layout project could contain multiple conveyor section projects and verify they all had the same width so that they would be compatible.

DriveWorks 21 is shaping up to be perhaps the best release yet. Introduced at DriveWorks World 2023, DriveWorks 21 is more intuitive, more cloud-ready, and more customizable than ever before. Some of the biggest changes provide DriveWorks Live users with more reliable, modern methods of web integration. These enhancements provide a seamless transition between the Administrator tool and the embedded website configurator.



Automation can help you save time and improve the efficiency of your design processes. In this introduction to automation, we cover three powerful automation tools included in SOLIDWORKS: Macros, Design Tables, and DriveWorksXpress.
