Design Automation

SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD software provides designers and engineers with powerful tools to speed up the design process and reduce time wasted on repetitive tasks thanks to design automation.

Automate repetitive tasks

SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD tools automate repetitive design tasks, benefiting companies making custom products for bid/RFP, as well as high volume manufacturers.


Thanks to automated design tools customers producing custom products of bid/RFP can benefit alongside high volume manufacturers:
  • DriveWorksXpress - Using a rules-based project and automated design process, produce infinite variations of a model which can be ran repeatedly once established.
    • Record and re-use design knowledge to save both time and money
    • Incorporate design rules to reduce errors and cost incurred by human error.
    • Automate repetitive tasks to decrease design time when exploring variants
    • Generate variations quickly and easily based on rules you create
  • Hotkeys - Automate many simple tasks with only a few mouse clicks
  • SOLIDWORKS Macros - Automate and streamline tasks with only a few steps
  • Task Scheduler - Schedule and automatically drive off-peak batch processing activities
  • Links to Microsoft® VBA - Make use of standard industry automation tools to generate custom animation
  • Built-in Application Programming Interface (API) - Automate specific functions in SOLIDWORKS
