DWS (DraWing Standard) is the file extension of template files for the standards checks. It is used in the drawing standards functions . You can create a DWS file using the Save As command.

You can customize your standard drawing template, for example include the title blocks and company logo in the standard drawing, save it as dws file format. Then each time you need to create a new drawing, double click that dws file, you will have all pre-set title blocks and company logo in the drawing and no need to draw from scratch, when running save, it will save to a dwg file.
