eDrawings Viewer is the only CAD viewer for Mac which delivers a premier 3D viewing experience for non CAD professionals. eDrawings Viewer enables anyone to quickly and easily view, print and review native eDrawings and SOLIDWORKS files in addition to AutoCAD DWG and DXF files. eDrawings is an email-enabled communication tool that dramatically eases the sharing of product design information. You can load and send files via email to collaborate more effectively with everyone involved in product development, including people who are not regular CAD software users to interpret and understand 2D and 3D designs.
eDrawings enables 2D & 3D product evaluation and collaboration through the MarkUp, Measure and Section tools. With dynamic sectioning collaborators can see any internal or external view of the design they require and mark-up enables them to give precise and contextual feedback.
* Intuitive and easy-to-use user interface
* Open 3D (EASM, EPRT, SLDASM, SLDPRT), 2D (EDRW, SLDDRW, DWG, DXF) and associated files from: email attachments, cloud storage services (Dropbox™, SkyDrive®, Google Drive, YouSendIt®, and others), web and FTP sites, network drives
* Zoom, pan and rotate your 2D or 3D CAD data
* Interrogate designs and collaborate with precision using Measure, MarkUp and Section functionality
* Animate 3D standard views as well as 2D drawing views.
* Browse your assembly components tree, configurations and drawing sheets
* View your designs in full screen and double tap to fit it on screen

Working Great - I just needed to take DXFs from Fusion 360 and convert them to PNGs for my cheap Chinese laser cutter. Hours later, with the web converters not working consistently, I found eDrawings. It took every DXF from Fusion and converted them flawlessly. Thank you!

Glad it exists, calling v1.0 is a stretch - After growing disappointed in the poor performance of the original eDrawings version for the Mac, I’m glad to see a reboot. However, in order to be designated Version 1.0, all the the indicated functionality should actually be working. There are several menu selections and icons that don’t actually do anything. Multitouch is unusable, when it actually does anything. Undo is not implimented. Etc. Needs a few basic enhancements: Scroll Feature Tree to selection or at a bare minimum note selected part’s name somewhere. Support for 3D mouse inputs. I’m giving it 3 stars for simply existing and hoping it gets enough support to improve moving forward.
Much Improved - While there are some things to be worked on, this release is overwhelmingly better than the the previous version of eDrawings which was only available from SolidWorks' website. It’s considerably faster and about 1/4 of the size of the old version. Good job!
keeps crashing - I tried to open a dwg file, but this app crashes constantly… don’t waste your time downloading this app.
A Step In The Right Direction - I love solidworks, to see Dassault Systems taking a step towards bringing some of their software to the mac is great to me and I seriously hope to see a form of solidworks on the mac someday. After extensively using this application as well as a version of it from the producer’s website, it is clear that the application is lacking in power somewhat. While it is a product that begins to resolve a problem (being a lack of great CAD viewing programs for MacOS), it seems to experience performance dips and crashing when viewing assembilies to an extent that I can’t fully state as acceptable. While I understand the circumstances of development for the producer, I can’t recommend this product in full until it becomes more stable. Regardless however, I seriously hope to see Dassault commit to producing software on MacOS as it is a growing desire (at least in the colorado machining market). Seeing a product address this desire is why I have given it three stars.
