Captured Models

The Captured Models section shows all of the models which have been captured in the currently open group.

You can right click any captured model to see options to expand/contract its children.

Capturing a New Model

To Capture a new model, simply:

  • Open the part or assembly in SOLIDWORKS
  • Or, Click the Action Link which appears at the top and asks you to capture the active model

Removing an Existing Model

To remove an existing model:

  • If it's an assembly, make sure it has no sub-assemblies or parts captured, if it does, you need to uncapture them first by opening the assembly, and uncapturing them in the Captured Assembly Structure section of the Explorer
  • If it's an assembly or part, make sure it has no drawings captured, if it does, you need to uncapture them first by opening the assembly, and uncapturing them in the Drawings section of the Explorer
  • Right click the assembly or part, and click "Remove" on the context menu that appears

Import Components

The Import Components wizard enables you to import captured models and all captured parameters from one group, into the current group.

Please see Import Components for more information.

Capture Parameters from the Model

After a model has been captured it can then have parameters captured that will be driven by the rules put in place.

More information on capturing the various parameters can be found at the following links:

For Parts:

For Assemblies:

Once a drawing has been captured for a model (part or assembly) it can then have further parameters captured to drive the drawing.

More information on capturing the various drawing parameters can be found at the following links:

For Drawings:

Capturing is the process of telling DriveWorks what documents, models and drawings you want to automate, and what features in those models and drawings are going to change.
