SolidWorks® users spend a considerable amount of time performing daily routines. It can be frustrating and time-consuming for designers, whose primary objective is to spontaneously create ideas, to repeat these tasks over and over again.
In addition, increasing productivity and efficiency is crucial in today’s business environment. Organizations must be able to react quickly to market changes. Designers are faced with the challenge of creating their designs in shorter timeframes — as product lifecycles are ever-decreasing. Data management in CAD is essential for designers to continuously assess how they can produce designs more quickly to remain competitive. But all designers really want to do is focus on their ideas, rather than on all these other distractions.
||The SQL Server 2008 was a logical choice for us since it provides the flexibility and reliability that we must deliver to our customers. We are especially satisfied with the fast and effective support.

CustomTools 2009 can reduce, and even eliminate, the most complex and timeconsuming of tasks for designers. Its batch printing and conversion tool, CustomTools, automates the entire printing and conversion process — saving SolidWorks users both time and effort. Users can import data, from corporate ERP and MRP systems to Solidworks, and export assembly structures. Custom properties are stored and managed as profiles through the Administration tool.
CustomTools also automates file naming and storing, based on your own rules, to eliminate naming or location errors. You can even locate where specific parts or subassemblies are in use. The CustomCopy feature enables users to copy, move, or rename the top-level assembly, and all referenced models and related drawings, simultaneously.
