eDrawings for CATIA V5 is the first email enabled collaboration tool designed to ease the sharing and interpretation of 2D & 3D product design data. It is a plug-in for Solid Edge that allows users to publish Solid Edge files as read only and ultra compact (upto 95% compression) eDrawings files for visualization, collaboration and design review.
View, publish and share exact read-only representations of CATIA V5 parts, assemblies and drawings for design review and collaboration.
Dynamic Cross-section View cross sections of part and assembly files by creating a variety of cross section planes.
Measurement Use the Measure tool to measure exact dimensions in part, assembly, and drawing files.
Captures and 3D Annotations support Export Captures and Annotations to eDrawings.
Mass Properties Query Mass, Volume, Density (parts only), and Surface area of the model.
Move Components Move, show and hide components in an assembly file, or in a drawing file of an assembly. You can also move entire subassemblies.
Markups Add markup elements, such as geometric elements, clouds, text, or dimensions to the comment using the markup tools.
Batch Publishing, Command Line and Scheduler Utility Create eDrawings files in Batch mode from CATIA V5 files using the Scheduler Utility. Integrate the creation of eDrawings automatically with your PLM Workflows using the Command Line utility.
3D data in Drawings Visualize drawings more effectively by exporting 3D shaded data in drawing files.
Layouts Open individual views in a drawing and arrange them in any way you desire, regardless of how the views were arranged in the original drawing. eDrawings layouts also automatically align the views intelligently and enable the eDrawings recipient to print and export any subset of a drawing.
Animation Demonstrate how drawing views relate to each other. With the click of a button eDrawings animates all the views contained in your drawing. Try out this feature yourself and see why everyone is so excited about eDrawings!
Insert Stamps Insert your company logos and images as stamps in the eDrawings file.
Data Protection Password protect eDrawings, disable measurement and STL export to protect sensitive data
Save as STL, Image formats eDrawings can be optionally exported by the eDrawings Viewer as STL files.
3D Pointer Easily identify and match geometry in multiple views using the 3D Pointer.
