SOLIDWORKS Sponsors DriveWorks World 2018

DriveWorks design automation and online 3D CPQ for SOLIDWORKS is used by companies large and small. Whether you’re an engineer who needs design automation to automate your SOLIDWORKS models, or a company wanting to provide a product configurator and guided selling for your sales teams, distributors and even customers, DriveWorks software is the ultimate choice for SOLIDWORKS.

There are three DriveWorks products – DriveWorksXpress, DriveWorks Solo and DriveWorks Pro. Each product is a SOLIDWORKS Gold Partner Product and DriveWorksXpress is already included in every license of SOLIDWORKS. All DriveWorks products are modular and scalable, so you can implement DriveWorks and grow your projects at your own pace, adding additional capabilities as and when you need them.

Every year, DriveWorks holds a technical event for all DriveWorks users, resellers and partners. As DriveWorks is a key SOLIDWORKS Gold Partner Product, we’re proud to sponsor the event year on year. This year we’re also celebrating 10 years since SOLIDWORKS chose DriveWorksXpress as the design automation tool of choice for SOLIDWORKS, including it as standard in every licence.

DriveWorks World 2018 will take place from 16th-18th April 2018 at The Park Royal Hotel, Cheshire UK. On Monday 16th April, DriveWorks’ CEO, Glen Smith, will welcome attendees and kick off the general session by revealing what’s new in DriveWorks 16. He’ll give attendees a first look at the new features and enhancements that will be included in the latest release of the software.

Customers are also invited to take to the stage on Monday afternoon to showcase how they are using DriveWorks and the benefits to their company. Every company uses DriveWorks in a different way and each configurator is unique. The user presentations allow attendees to learn from each other and pick up ideas for their own configurators.

With so much functionality and so many ways to use DriveWorks, DriveWorks World 2018 will be split into two streams:

Option 1: DriveWorks Pro Administrator Training and Certification. This option gives attendees the opportunity to become Certified DriveWorks Professionals (CDWP).

Option2: Choose Your Own Topic Specific Sessions. A selection of brief sessions covering specific advanced topics at different skill levels.

For the first time, DriveWorks is offering advanced topic-specific sessions, which allow attendees to build their own agenda. Attendees can tailor their DriveWorks World experience and learn what’s relevant to them.

DriveWorks is also hosting a pre-DriveWorks World excursion for anyone who is arriving at the venue early. On Saturday 15th April, members of the DriveWorks team will be visiting Jodrell Bank Observatory, Tatton Park Historic Estate and enjoying lunch and drinks by the fire. Learn more at
