From 2nd August 2012 - DriveWorks is launching a series of weekly webinars on specialist topics, demonstrating how to get the most from DriveWorks Software.
The webinars are designed to provide added value to all DriveWorks Customers with an active subscription support contract and of course our DriveWorks Resellers.
These Value Add webinars will include topics that show how to use the software e.g. 'Specification Flow' (basic and advanced sessions) and also tips and tricks suggesting how to improve the use of DriveWorks e.g. 'Funk Up Your Forms'.
If you already know about DriveWorks Solo and would like to do more, then this webinar is ideal for you. It reveals some of the additional functionality available in DriveWorks Pro and sets out the steps to using DriveWorks as a Sales Configurator.
Product Data Management is a topic that we are often asked about. And because DriveWorks is so good at generating documents and data automatically, we wanted to make sure that for those companies that are interested in managing all those files that we could provide an immediate solution.
1. Say you configure a cupboard in a browser, using DriveWorks Pro Live. You fill out the form including quote number, customer name, materials, dimensions etc...
2. When your design is complete and you click 'Release', DriveWorks Pro Autopilot starts working in the background to generate the new files.
3. As DriveWorks Pro Autopilot creates all the files, these are sent into the SolidWorks Enterprise PDM Vault.
4. When this is complete, you can open up the location where DriveWorks has saved the files: you can see the drawings, models, parts assemblies have all been automatically been checked in to the EPDM vault.
As you can see, when you configure your design on the web and click go, everything in the background has been created and checked in.
It's really easy to set up, via the settings screens in DriveWorks Pro. Just enter: Vault Name, User Name and Password, etc - and then DriveWorks takes care of the rest.
