In eDrawings®, you can view and animate models and drawings and create documents convenient for sending to others.

eDrawings Viewer is installed automatically with the SOLIDWORKS software. With eDrawings Viewer, you can measure and mark up files.

As a best practice, distribute drawings and assemblies files in eDrawings format, which always requires updates when referenced parts are modified. If this is not possible, redistribute the updated SOLIDWORKS parent drawings and assemblies each time you modify the referenced parts.
If Large Assembly Mode is selected, high-quality HLR/HLV views in assembly drawings do not contain shaded data in the published eDrawings (.edrw) file. If all views in the drawing are high quality, no shaded data is included in the eDrawings file and you cannot animate the drawing in eDrawings.

eDrawings Professional

With eDrawings Professional, you can save files as Web HTML files to view on supported browsers.
