What is eDrawings?
eDrawings is a viewing and publishing application for sharing and archiving 2D and 3D product design data
Collaborate more effectively with everyone involved in your product development by using eDrawings software, the first email-enabled communication tool that dramatically eases sharing of product design information.
Fast, reliable, and convenient, eDrawings files supply accurate representations of 3D models and 2D drawings created with the most widely used CAD systems on the market. Offering unique capabilities like point-and-click animations that make it easy for anyone to interpret and understand 2D and 3D design data.
Eliminate Communication Barriers
eDrawings eliminates the communication barriers that designers and engineers deal with daily. eDrawings gives you and your extended design team the tools necessary to visualize, interpret and collaborate with 2D and 3D product design data.
- Share product design with review-enabled eDrawings that enable an unlimited number of recipients to provide feedback and collaborate on your product design data
- Create highly compressed 2D and 3D eDrawings files that are viewable with the free eDrawings Viewer
- Eliminate errors due to misinterpretation of data
- Examine internal details of your parts and assemblies with dynamic cross sectioning
- Manage, track and merge comments from different team members
- Provide anyone access to design data with self-extracting eDrawings
- Protect sensitive data by selective disabling measurement or password protect the SOLIDWORKS eDrawing

eDrawings enables anyone to view native 2D drawings for design reviews and collaboration
View CAD Files in AR/VR
The Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) capabilities of eDrawings extends its use into virtual product evaluations by design teams and customers.
VR capabilities are available in windows desktop professional and AR/VR capabilities are available in mobile versions of eDrawings.
Viewing your designs in AR or VR takes your design reviews to the next level, allowing you to view your designs and concepts in the context of the real world.
Share with your Supply chain
eDrawings enables companies to share product information with suppliers and external contractors while protecting your IP.
Providing unambiguous information ensures that suppliers can give the best quote without the need for changes later in the process, which results in additional costs and possible delays in manufacturing.
The rapid pace of product development means that companies can no longer afford to wait until all project stakeholders are in one location to gain project approval. eDrawings enables teams to share, collaborate and mark up designs where ever they are.
Publish HTML5 3D models
eDrawings enables users to publish models in an HTML 5 file, which can then be opened in any compatible browser. Models can be shared and viewed without the need for software installation.
eDrawings is a lightweight file format that can contain 3D models and or 2D drawings. This file can be created directly from SOLIDWORKS or by the use of eDrawing Publisher from Autodesk Inventor®, Pro/ENGINEER® CATIA® V5, SIEMENS NX®, Solid Edge®, PTC CREO software and SketchUp®.
Three packages to choose from
Accelerate the design to manufacturing process with eDrawings Professional. From using Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) capabilities to sending a 3D model to a supplier for quoting or enabling the shop floor eDrawings Professional empowers companies and leverages the power for 3D design.
For anyone involved in the product development process eDrawings Viewer enables you to communicate, share and collaborate in a easily shareable lightweight file without having to worry about design software compatibility.
eDrawing Publisher supports the creation of eDrawings from SOLIDWORKS®, Autodesk Inventor®, Pro/ENGINEER® CATIA® V5, SIEMENS NX®, Solid Edge®, PTC CREO software and SketchUp®. In addition to CAD solutions, eDrawings RapidFire Lite supports the creation of eDrawings from IGES and STEP neutral file formats.
