eDrawings® Professional is an optional set of tools that enhances the eDrawings application.
If a file originated from SOLIDWORKS Professional or SOLIDWORKS Premium, it has an embedded eDrawings® Professional license (it is review-enabled). This is true for native SOLIDWORKS files and published eDrawings files.
The Move tool lets you move components in an assembly file or in a drawing file of an assembly. eDrawings ignores mates, allowing full degrees of freedom. You can also move subassemblies as a unit.
The Measure tool measures exact dimensions in part, assembly, and drawing documents.
You can drag the plane to change the cross section.
Add stamp images to documents.
If a SOLIDWORKS part or assembly document has multiple configurations, you can select which configurations to save to the eDrawings file when you publish it from the SOLIDWORKS application. If you publish multiple configurations, the file size and the time required to save the eDrawings file may increase.
When you publish a multi-sheet drawing document as an eDrawings file, you can select which sheets to publish in the eDrawings file. If you publish multiple sheets, the file size and the time required to save the eDrawings file may increase.
You can display exploded view information in your CAD application's assembly documents that you open in eDrawings.
You can display mass properties for CAD files (except SOLIDWORKS files) or eDrawings part and assembly files. You can also set the units and precision for calculating the mass properties. In assemblies, the properties are calculated for the complete assembly, not individual components.
eDrawings supports 3D Views.
eDrawings supports annotation views.
