eDrawings Products

eDrawings® products include the eDrawings Viewer, available in free and fee-based versions, and eDrawings Publishers. The Viewer is used to view and create eDrawings files and other supported file types. The publishers are used to create eDrawings files from inside CAD applications.

You can download eDrawings products at https://www.edrawingsviewer.com/download-edrawings.

eDrawings Professional

The professional version of the eDrawings Viewer requires a license. eDrawings Professional is intended primarily for CAD users and design team collaborators who need to share product designs and coordinate design reviews. In addition to the standard collaboration tools such as markup-enabled, measure, and exploded views, eDrawings Professional lets you view models in Virtual Reality (VR), which allows teams to fully understand scale, accessibility, and impacts of the working environment on their design.

SOLIDWORKS Document Manager

SOLIDWORKS installations include the SOLIDWORKS Document Manager, SWDocumentMgr.dll. The stand-alone version of the eDrawings Viewer does not include this add-on.

When eDrawings is installed on a system without SOLIDWORKS, drawings that include elements such as custom properties and tables may not be displayed with their most current data. When you open a SOLIDWORKS drawing, you are warned about the missing DLL and given the option to install it. If you continue without doing the download, SOLIDWORKS drawings that rely on the software are marked with a warning that some of the content may not be up-to-date.

The SOLIDWORKS Document Manager software is not available as a download for eDrawings on the Mac.
