Comparing DriveWorksXpress with Design Tables

Why should I use DriveWorksXpress rather than design tables?

File Size DriveWorksXpress creates new files which keeps file size to a minimum.
Ease of Use New variations are easy to create. Customer-specific models and drawings are easy to manage.
Scalability Projects can be scaled and maintained as needs evolve over time.
Automated Drawings Unique drawings for all parts and assemblies can be created automatically.
Rule Driven Rules determine which calculation or value is required to drive a given parameter. Rules and calculations that affect multiple parts and assemblies are easily linked in the rule editor.
