Download free 15-day trial Supported Solid Edge version – Solid Edge ST2, ST3, ST4, ST5, ST6 & ST7

eDrawings for Solid Edge 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 Solid Edge that allows users to publish Solid Edge 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, add markup 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.

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 provides you with greater control over your design information by disabling measurement, disabling STL export and password protection.

Features & Benefits

Solid Edge Part/Assembly/Drawing support (*.par, *.asm, *.dft, *.psm and *.pwd )
View, publish and share exact read-only representations of Solid Egde parts, assemblies and drawings for design review and collaboration.
Multiple Drawing Sheets
Export multiple sheets from CAD file to eDrawings.

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.
Built-in Viewer
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.

Dynamic Cross-section
View cross sections of part and assembly files by creating a variety of cross section planes.
Measurement
Use the Measure tool to measure exact dimensions in part, assembly, and drawing files.

Move Components
Move, show and hide components in an assembly file, or in a drawing file of an assembly. You can also move entire subassemblies.
Markups
Add markup elements, such as geometric elements, clouds, text, or dimensions to the comment using the markup tools.

Insert Stamps
Insert your company logos and images as stamps in the eDrawings file.
3D data in Drawings
Visualize drawings more effectively by exporting 3D shaded data in drawing files.

Layouts
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.
Animation
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!

Batch Publishing
Convert multiple Solid Edge files to eDrawings.
Data Protection
Password protect eDrawings, disable measurement and STL export to protect sensitive data

Save as STL, Image formats
eDrawings can be optionally exported by the eDrawings Viewer as STL files.
Mass Properties
Query Mass, Volume, Density (parts only), and Surface area of the model.
3D Pointer
Easily identify and match geometry in multiple views using the 3D Pointer.

eDrawings publishers are also available for Pro/ENGINEER, CATIA V5, STEP/IGS/STL,NX, Autodesk Inventor, SketchUp and PTC Creo Elements/Direct.
