R.J. Lewis Design and DriveWorks

What is DriveWorks?

Are your Designs the same but different?
Let us help you automate your Design Process using DriveWorks Technology.

DriveWorks is a proven Design automation software for SolidWorks.
It is used by engineers, sales teams, distributors and customers throughout the world to design and configure-to-order new and variant designs.
DriveWorks allows you to quickly and easily generate new variations of your SolidWorks parts, assemblies and drawings.

DriveWorksXpress is included in SolidWorks.
DriveWorks Solo and DriveWorks Pro can be purchased from local SolidWorks/DriveWorks Resellers.

Here at R.J. Lewis Design, we have many years of SolidWorks modelling experience. We also have valuable DriveWorks experience and so we can help you get started fast by making sure that your SolidWorks models are ready for automation and ready to be automated in DriveWorks whether it be Xpress, Solo or Pro.

Here you can see an example of a typical DriveWorks project

Louvre Model automation by DriveWorks

What makes a model good for automation?

Chair model

In the example of the Chair above, a series of planes were linked to a defined sketch, sketches were then created on those planes.
In all cases the sketches were fully defined, enabling the whole model to be easily modified to the customers’ requirements without the model crashing.

Crashed Frame example

In the example of the frame above, the planes were linked to an undefined sketch, the model crashed when the overall size was increased.

This highlights the importance of careful planning of how the model is to be built, this is an area where our SolidWorks experience is invaluable.
