DriveWorks Solo 17: Open/Create Project Wizard [send feedback...]

Open/Create Project Wizard

DriveWorks Solo requires a project to be created and open to store information captured from master models and drawings, and to start the design of the user forms and apply the rules and data to control the outputs.

Open/Create Project Wizard

When the DriveWorks Solo tab is activated in the SOLIDWORKS task pane and no project is currently open, there will be two methods available to open or create a project.

  • Use the Open/Create Project button
  • Use the Helper Link

Each of the methods above will launch the project wizard.

Once the dialog is open the following options are available:

  • Create a new project
  • Open and existing project
  • Open last project

Create a New Project

To create a new project:

  1. Select the Create a new project option, click Next
  2. Choose from one of the available templates
  3. In the location field click the Browse button to browse to a folder to store the information
  4. The Name field will auto-complete with the name of the folder selected above, this can be changed.
  5. Click Finish

A new blank project has now been created and opened and model information can now be captured. See Captured Models on how to do this.

If a project has already been created and now requires opening:

  1. Select the Open existing project option, click Next
  2. In the Path field, click the Browse button to browse to the folder that contains the ProjectName.driveproj file for the project
