The following innovative features give eDrawings® the capabilities that you need to overcome common barriers to effective design communication
Ultra Compact Files
eDrawings are substantially smaller in size compared to the original CAD files, making them easy to send by email, even over slow connections. With eDrawings, it’s finally practical to send design data via email.
eDrawings offer a complete, self-contained communication tool since no other viewing software is needed. In addition, eDrawings viewer can view native SolidWorks parts, assemblies and drawings, and also AutoCAD files.
Open individual views in a drawing and arrange them in any way you desire, regardless of how the views were arranged in the original drawing. eDrawings layouts also automatically align the views intelligently and enable the eDrawings recipient to print and export any subset of a drawing.
Easily identify and match geometry in multiple views using the 3D Pointer.
Demonstrate how drawing views relate to each other. With the click of a button eDrawings animates all the views contained in your drawing. Try out this feature yourself and see why everyone is so excited about eDrawings!
Save as STL
eDrawings can be optionally exported by the eDrawings Viewer as STL files.
Convert multiple CAD files to eDrawings.
Add markup elements, such as geometric elements, clouds, text, or dimensions to the comment using the markup tools.
You can disable measurement and STL export of eDrawings files to protect sensitive data
Use the Measure tool to measure exact dimensions in part, assembly, and drawing files. For isometric type drawing views, the projected length is displayed instead of the true length.
View cross sections of part and assembly files by creating a variety of cross section planes.
You can display exploded view information in assembly documents that you open in the eDrawings Viewer. When you publish eDrawings assembly files(.easm) that have exploded view information, the explode information is saved with the eDrawing file automatically.
The Move Component feature lets you move individual components in an assembly file, or in a drawing file of an assembly. You can also move entire subassemblies.
Query Mass, Volume, Density (parts only), and Surface area of the model.
