Now the seats of SolidWorks comes with a seat of DriveWorks Xpress.
What is the difference between DriveWorks Xpress and DriveWorks Pro? Does it cost anything to upgrade to DriveWorks Pro?
As with the other 'Express' addins for SOLIDWORKS, DriveWorks Xpress is designed to only work on parts and not assemblies. While there are work arounds to this, it's still pretty limited.
It does cost to upgrade to DriveWorks Pro, but you'd have to talk to a reseller for pricing. DriveWorks Pro will allow for assembly automation and more controls. Again, you'd need to talk to a reseller to get the complete list of differences.
Alright, thanks for the information I appreciate it. Are you very firmiliar with how to use DriveWorks?
They have great tutorials on there website, I used these videos to get started with Xpress.
This one I watched first.

I have made some large assemblies with driveworks express, and despite the limitations I got satisfacotry results...I thing it would be easier with the most comprete versions, but the company doesen't want to invest in software and we have to work with waht we have..
I make some assmblies mixing the driveworks equations with the equations in the solidworks itself and could make the projects.
One thing that is very anoying in that we can't save the project in a location diferent from where the template assembly is saved...
Thanks for the post Nuno,
What kind of assemblies do you do with it?
