Imagine this scenario: you’re working from home and a team member asks to you to review their product designed in SolidWorks. You do not have access to your work computer, which has SolidWorks, but you need to provide feedback quickly to keep the design process moving. How do you view the file?
Thankfully, SolidWorks has a FREE solution to help you out. The eDrawings Viewer allows you to open eDrawings files, get dimensions, and collaborate with others by using the mark-up capability. This means you can annotate the design on the spot and share your thoughts with your team without worrying about working remotely.
The eDrawings Viewer is easy to download – you can find it on the SolidWorks homepage under the Products tab. Just click on Free CAD Tools: the second item on the page is the eDrawings Viewer. To download, just click “Download eDrawings Viewer FREE” and, presto, you’re done!
