3D data in Drawings


Visualize drawings more effectively by exporting 3D shaded data in drawing 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.



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!
