There’s a time coming when we’ll all transform into machines who need no sleep and could care less if cupcakes had too much icing. One company who already realizes this vision of the future, and preparing us all for it, is DriveWorks. They’ve brought automation to SolidWorks with DriveWorksXpress, DriveWorks Solo and DriveWorks Pro. DriveWorks 8 bridges the web and automation gap even more by bringing more customization and enhancements you can slap all over those wonderful products you design.
