SWXHelper’s integration is really simple and works like any other Solidworks macro.

No installation or administrator rights are required.

If you want to use SWXHelper in a team, just place an image on the desired network drive.

For standalone use you can of course also use a copy on your local device.

What does this tool do for me?

  • Save valuable time in your design process

  • Protect your know-how towards customers and suppliers

  • Create a new qualitative standard that is easy to implement for all designers

  • Avoid mistakes, through the use of clever automatisms

Who is the SWXHelper made for?

SWXHelper is a free solution for small & medium-sized businesses. Which often have only limited budget available. In order to remain competitive, it is important to automate.

Why is SWXHelper free of charge?

The development of SWXHelper is a private project. Therefore the further development and bug fixing are not guaranteed. In addition, I can only provide limited support in case of bugs, because I can only test the software in my own user environment.
