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 Motion Manager Output

View animations created with SOLIDWORKS Motion Manager 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.
