DriveWorks is a leading Design Automation tool for SOLIDWORKS users. As a SOLIDWORKS Gold Partner Solution, DriveWorks is tightly integrated with SOLIDWORKS, allowing users to easily automate the mechanical design of products and the creation of derivative models and drawings from within SOLIDWORKS.

It runs within SOLIDWORKS to allow of more complex interactive user interfaces, wider control over SOLIDWORKS models and drawings, support for tabular data lookups, and the ability to generate output documents from provided templates.
The flagship product, DriveWorks Pro expands capabilities to the enterprise, supporting a permission-based team environment additional output document options, links to external data sources and workflow-style processes. DriveWorks Pro projects can be shared across the organization, by SOLIDWORKS and non-SOLIDWORKS users simultaneously. It adds further control over user interfaces and adds support for SOLIDWORKS macro and DriveWorks API programming extensions.
DriveWorks Pro can generate Word, Excel and XML output documents and automatically email notifications with attachments. It can also access external data sources like ERP or PLM systems to retrieve, validate or push information.
