eDrawings for iPod touch, iPhone or iPad

Article by Scott Durksen, CSWE updated April 7, 2013


AppSolidWorks has an eDrawings app that allows you to view your models and drawings anywhere! On the Apple App Store, there are two versions to choose from (similar to the PC eDrawings program). Check them out!



eDrawings for iPhoneeDrawings for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad allows you to open your native eDrawings or SolidWorks files and use multi-touch gestures to pan, zoom, or rotate your model. Show your assemblies in exploded states and browse through the assembly component tree.  Switch between configurations and hide/show or make components transparent. For your detailed drawings, easily switch between sheets and see all the dimensions. Play animations switching between 3D model views or 2D drawing views. A double-tap fits your models to the screen or zooms into drawing views.


eDrawings Pro for iPhone

eDrawings Pro for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad gives you even more functionality than eDrawings. Take dynamic cross section views, measurements, markups and annotations and share them to other users by email. Creating the markups in eDrawings files allow you to add text or freehand annotations. All the markups are saved in the eDrawings file for future review or comments.




Receive your files through email and choose to “Open With” to select eDrawings. Or better yet save the files to Dropbox or Box on your computer, then use the App to download the file and choose “Open In” and launch eDrawings. Also to save some time and space, assemblies and drawings can be opened on their own without the need of their referenced part and assembly files.
