Supported NX versions – NX 7, NX 7.5, NX 8, NX 8.5, NX 9 and NX 10
eDrawings for NX 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 NX that allows users to publish NX 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.
eDrawings files can also be saved as self extracting executables (*.exe/*.zip) that contain the viewer as well as design data. In addition, you can also save eDrawings as HTML files that can be kept and shared on your web server.
