If you ever need to share SOLIDWORKS files/models with members of an extended team who don’t use SOLIDWORKS themselves, don’t panic. SOLIDWORKS offers a free solution for this in the form of eDrawings Viewer – the easiest way to share 2D and 3D CAD data across multiple CAD environments.

This useful tool allows you to open eDrawings files, get dimensions, and collaborate with others by using the mark-up capability. You can access and view AutoCAD, DWG and DXF files as well as native SOLIDWORKS parts, assemblies and drawings.

You can also use eDrawings to share fully interactive models online with anyone with Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Firefox etc. Have a play with the interactive model below. Load speed will vary depending on the speed of your internet connection, but no SOLIDWORKS desktop application or browser plug-ins are needed!
