Automating Repetitive Design Tasks

Does it feel like you are doing the same thing over and over? Maybe it's time to consider some design automation.  Every seat of SolidWorks contains functionality explicitly written for this challenge. DriveworksXpress uses forms to automate the design of parts, assemblies, and drawings. Once you create your seed models you can start DriveworksXpress through the tools menu. Automation can be done simply and quickly.
 
Start DriveworksXpress
 
Create a new database.
 
Locate your seed parts that you will be automating.
 
Select the features you will be changing.
 
Capture Drawing (If necessary).
 
Create Form with the values from the model.
 
Run Automated Design.
 
Wishing you well in your design efforts,
