eDrawings Professional for CATIA V5 is the first email enabled collaboration tool designed to ease the sharing and interpretation of 2D & 3D product design data. It is a plug-in for CATIA V5 that allows users to publish CATIA V5 files as read only and ultra compact (upto 95% compression) eDrawings files for visualization, collaboration and design review.
Review enabled eDrawings files allow an unlimited number of recipients to easily query product designs and provide feedback. With eDrawings, the end recipients don’t need to buy any additional software for design review, markup, measurement and dynamic cross sectioning.
eDrawings also provides you with greater control over your design information by disabling measurement and STL export as well as password protection.
Save eDrawings files as self extracting executables and zip files that contain the viewer as well as design data. With eDrawings executables, the end recipient does not need to download or install any additional software. Exporting to various image formats and STL is also available. eDrawings files can also be saved as HTML files for sharing on your websites and intranets.
