eDrawings for Macintosh

eDrawings® is supported on the Macintosh® operating system. You can open DXF/DWG, SOLIDWORKS, and eDrawings files.

The complimentary eDrawings software for the Mac® operating system (eDrawings for Mac) contains most of the functionality of the Windows version including animation, measure, and print. eDrawings for Mac is supported in English, French, German, and Japanese.

Opening review-enabled files activates the eDrawings Professional tools (markup, move, cross-section, etc.) There is no eDrawings Professional for Mac.
