HAWKWARE SOLUTIONS & SERVICES

For the past 20 years the SOLIDWORKS products supported Engineering and Design departments with an amazing suite of tools to create, analyze, visualize, manage and build their dreams. During that time the HAWKWARE Team studied and listened to your challenges, creating a wide range of complementary solutions to maximize your investments, and improve your competitive positions.

What challenges do you face? Sometimes the solution is as simple as automating some repeatable, but tedious steps in a design or management process. Other challenges may require a software platform that doesn’t exist. We love a challenge. And we love seeing our customers succeed.

GET THE MOST OUT OF YOUR SOLIDWORKS TOOLS WITH HAWKWARE

WESTCAN Manufacturing developed an internal website to gather information from multiple systems, including SOLIDWORKS PDM. They needed to use URLs to pass commands to PDM to get properties, BOMs, previews, and even to replace SOLIDWORKS CAD references to support online configuration.

The solution was to develop a REST (representational state transfer) API for SOLIDWORKS PDM, that would accept commands in URL form and return data or confirmation. This technology platform can now be leveraged in other applications, like issue tracking and PLM interactions.
