DriveWorks has its own 3D file format, which is an export from SolidWorks.
Once exported DriveWorks 3D Workshop can be used to prepare the model for configuration on the web. DriveWorks 3D Workshop is free and included with DriveWorks Pro.
DriveWorks 3D Files have been created to work in most modern browsers and on most devices. In this walkthrough example, the user can see how easy it is to manipulate DriveWorks 3D files to be able to see various views and zoom in and out.
The example includes information text, explaining how the project is working. Using DriveWorks’ rules technology the user can choose whether or not this information is displayed. The demo illustrates that appearances can be changed without having to create thousands of exported models. It also demonstrates how DriveWorks can even create and view 3D models that have not been created before.
For this, SolidWorks is running in the background. If the file does not exist, DriveWorks Autopilot will create it and export the DriveWorks 3D file, before previewing it in the browser.
So head on over to the DriveWorks Live demo site now to see different ways to create and manipulate 3D on the web and on your device.
