SOLIDWORKS® eDrawings® Professional

Application for sharing 2D and 3D product design data

SOLIDWORKS eDrawings Professional is an ideal tool for anyone that needs to share data and collaborate with their extended design team. SOLIDWORKS eDrawings Professional eliminates the communication barriers that designers and engineers deal with daily. SOLIDWORKS eDrawings Professional 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

SOLIDWORKS eDrawings Professional Features

The following innovative features give SOLIDWORKS eDrawings Professional the capabilities that you need to overcome common barriers to effective design communication:

Enable Markup

Create, edit, and save reviews by redlining 2D or 3D data and adding written comments.

Enable Measure

Measure geometry in part, assembly, and drawing files when dimensions are omitted from an eDrawings file. To protect sensitive design data, simply disable the measurement feature.

Password Protection

Password-protect your eDrawings files, encouraging users to more fully share design data.

Dynamic Cross Sectioning

Visualize designs more effectively by moving a dynamic cross-sectioning plane through parts and assemblies to see design details typically hidden from view.

Move Components and Explode Views

Understand assembly structure more quickly - simply drag and drop components with your cursor to view an exploded assembly. Return components to their normal position by double-clicking on the component.

View & Save Configurations

View SOLIDWORKS configurations, multiple design variations of a part or assembly model displayed within a single document. Choose which configurations will be stored in the SOLIDWORKS eDrawing.

Share and View SOLIDWORKS MotionManager Output

View animations created with SOLIDWORKS MotionManager and observe in real time how moving parts interact as true solids.

View Mass Properties

Allow eDrawings file recipients to view dimensions, mass, volume, density, and surface area of the part or assembly shown in the SOLIDWORKS eDrawings file.

We use the markup and measure functionality of SOLIDWORKS eDrawings extensively, that is the way we communicate our mechanical designs to our customers.
