eDrawingsiPhone Apps



eDrawings® is the only CAD viewer on iPad, iPad mini, iPhone and iPod Touch that allows you to view native eDrawings files as well as native SolidWorks® parts, assemblies and drawings files. In addition, eDrawings allows convenient viewing of DWG and DXF files.

eDrawings includes Augmented Reality (AR). This allows you to view your 3D models in 1:1 scale into the real world. By simply activating the device’s camera, you can bring your virtual 3D designs in a real context and see them in situ, sitting on your desk or on your conference room table or even in the palm of your hand, through your iPad, Pad mini, iPhone or iPod Touch’s screen. Move around the room and see your design from any perspective.

eDrawings is the email-enabled communication tool that dramatically eases 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.

Multi-touch gestures let you pan, zoom, and rotate models easily. eDrawings also supports configurations, drawing sheets, and exploded views for eDrawings files published from SolidWorks® and all other supported CAD software.

* Intuitive and easy-to-use user interface
* Visualize your 3D models in real context with Augmented Reality (AR)
* Open 3D (EASM, EPRT, SLDASM, SLDPRT, IGES, IGS, JT, STEP, STP, IFC), 2D (EDRW, SLDDRW, DWG, DXF) and associated files from any source: email attachments, cloud storage services (Dropbox™, SkyDrive®, Google Drive, YouSendIt®, and others), web and FTP sites, networks, and iTunes® File Sharing.
* Zoom, pan and rotate your 2D or 3D CAD data using multi-touch
* 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
* Adapt the scale of your 3D model in AR mode
* Freeze the background in AR mode with viewpoint lock to prolong AR experience without holding up your device.
* Sample files included

  • Doesn’t work with ios14??
    by anon745 on 2021-02-25 at 2:54 AM

    Opens and instantly closes

  • Can’t use pen
    by Willjust on 2020-10-09 at 5:25 PM

    No point to this $2 app...

  • Doesn’t work
    by bob dickyhoo on 2020-09-20 at 1:28 PM

    It just doesn’t work, doesn’t even start. I’ve got an iPhone X... and this is bizarre, app just doesn’t open. Neither when you start it myself nor when you open a fairly simple model with it. First time that I pay for an app and it can’t do -anything-

  • 2020 not supported
    by davejm53 on 2020-03-14 at 8:57 PM

    The supposed 2020 file support is not true. This does not open 2020 SWFiles.

  • Awesome at viewing large unwieldy assemblies
    by PunkTacoNYC on 2019-12-05 at 2:30 AM

    Somehow this app viewed my large assembly ~260 parts better than Solidworks on a beefy desktop PC. Works very fast. Four stars, however, because it lacks the ability to move parts with dynamic mates, like turn a wheel relative to the chassis.

  • Upgrade option
    by TangentOf on 2019-07-25 at 12:41 AM

    I got the base app to try the app, no need to purchase the Pro app at higher price. Now the extra features Pro offers would be helpful. To get the extra features you must pay full price for Pro app after already paying money for base app. Would be nice to have an upgrade price/option.

  • Not working!
    by Unpleased_Customer on 2019-07-02 at 6:24 PM

    Downloaded the app and the sample data that comes with the app works like it should. When I try to open parts or drawings or assemblies something opens on the app but no data is displayed and I can zoom, rotate and select the views without any data shown. Contacted customer service and got an email back asking some questions about my device but did not hear anything back after my response a month ago. I DON’T RECOMMEND THIS APP - IT’S NOT WORKING!

  • Works well. AR is useful. Buggy cloud-connectivity
    by faze-2 on 2019-04-06 at 7:59 PM

    All the tools I’ve used work. iCloud functions most the time for file operations. Google Drive is unreliable.

  • Trash
    by notesboy on 2019-02-11 at 12:41 AM

    It’s not compatible with 2019 files and won’t open them so don’t buy this unless you want older versions of cad operating systems.

  • Can’t view 2019 solid works files
    by Mjames211 on 2019-01-21 at 9:20 PM

    It’s awesome for older files, but in a recent upgrade to solid works 2019 I discovered that this app is completely worthless.

  • Does not support 2019 solidworks.
    by Gbelcik on 2018-11-09 at 2:22 AM

    As title says, it is not opening files saved in 2019 solidworks. I will update review when it is fixed.

  • Don't support Chinese . so sad
    by yaooo_ on 2018-02-07 at 2:44 PM

    Unable to open Chinese filename

  • Use with a File Browser
    by Talaki3 on 2017-09-08 at 2:44 PM

    You need a file management app for this app to work. This app works great at work with all of our SWx models. I use File Browser to find the models, and "open in" "Copy to eDrawings". Pulls them off the network no problem. SLDPRT and SLDASM files. I haven't tried marking up prints yet. That's the next step. May need to upgrade to pro for that. Also, no section views with this version. Maybe that's in pro as well???

  • Cool if you can get it to work.
    by The Reuster on 2017-08-22 at 3:01 PM

    Can only see samples until, finally, I was able to open in>copy to eDrawings from Google Drive in Safari. It did not work from the Google Drive app, nor from Mail, nor from iCloud Drive. It does not show up in my Settings either. Something is definitely wrong and needs to be fixed. Once I was able to open my files, it was really cool to view easm files on the road.

  • I would like a refund
    by Harv052894 on 2017-08-07 at 8:53 PM

    I could understand if it was free trial and then I paid for it and it didn't work. But to purchase and not work? Need a refund

    by LHL23 on 2017-08-05 at 1:59 AM

    It will only open their sample files. It will not open personal files. Waste of money.

  • All of the one star comments are correct.
    by LatitudeAttitude on 2017-06-29 at 3:47 PM

    All of the one star comments are correct. Every one of my parts I try to load get stuck trying to open.

  • Awesome!
    by muddyman1765421 on 2017-06-24 at 4:30 PM

    Just writing a review to let people know that this app works! To open files, have them emailed to you, tap the attachment and select "open in eDrawings" option. This app is very useful, as it does not require dragging a laptop or printing out pictures just to convey design ideas.

  • Highway robbery
    by jd1369 on 2017-06-04 at 3:25 AM

    I cannot open any of my own files. This app only opens the example files that come pre-packaged with the app. Pretty much you will pay $1.99 to have the eDrawings icon on your home screen. That's all the functionality you will get out of it until they fix the bugs.

  • No longer shows decals and other visual features
    by Don Paloo on 2017-03-15 at 6:38 PM

    Long-time user. You can no longer see my decals that were viewable on all previous versions and my models are displayed with excessive glare that makes it impossible to discern the individual parts and details making this relatively usless for me. I tried SolidWorks and eDrawing formats: same result. I contacted SolidWorks and they replied this is a known issue and there is no workaround. It has been several months now. I am an owner of SolidWorks Professional since 2009 and have had their maintenance plan the whole time ie. I have paid them well over $15,000.00. Nevermind all the SolidWorks features that don't work. Trust me, I'm looking elsewhere.

  • View only, doesn't open file.
    by Kaniwar Ali on 2017-02-24 at 6:20 PM

    How can I get refund?

  • Perfect!
    by Elliott Turner on 2017-01-03 at 10:41 PM

    I recently began using SolidWorks under a sponsorship for an engineering challenge. I absolutely love the software, however presentation of the CAD files was difficult and inefficient requiring my laptop (I use renders for 2d presentations, but being able to present a design in three dimensions makes all the different). I now use the AR feature of eDrawings constently for it provides an increadible way to quickly and accuretly show people designes without having keep prototypes on my person. Furthermore, the ability to make components in assemblies transparent or completely invisible is increadibly useful for showing exactly how a design fits together as well as internal structures. Overall, this is a great app and definetly worth the money.

  • Sketches and Decals Don't Work
    by ThisOneThing2929 on 2016-12-21 at 11:53 PM

    The feature associated with Sketches and Decals no longer works. Please restore this vital functionality in my favorite app.

  • Doesn't work
    by Jc1234cc on 2016-12-08 at 2:58 PM

    I can't load or open any file

  • Wonky konky app
    by Daftegg on 2016-09-10 at 4:21 PM

    Detailed drawings do not load correctly. I just have a gradient background where the paperspace should be. Good luck...

  • It would be worth it....
    by Macydog12 on 2016-08-11 at 2:22 AM

    The app doesn't allow you to load a file from a cloud drive. When viewing my drawings on google drive there is no option to open in the app. Same thing when viewing email attachments. It's not worth any penny if you can't even view your drawings. Please update your app!!! This app could be so good.

  • Doesn't work
    by whimsicat on 2016-06-29 at 6:13 PM

    Can't get it to open from any program. Google drive, Evernote, native email, Safari. iOS doesn't recognize its even downloaded, doesn't display in settings/apps. $2 wasted.

  • Needs update. will not open from google drive or Dropbox
    by dmitriyo on 2016-06-29 at 12:32 AM

    Used to be able to open files from Google drive or drop box. Seems the app has not been updated to work with ios9 well or with the latest cloud storage solutions. it's is now unusable - as the original features simply do not work. Needs update. So very disappointing to come back to a great app that is now just obsolete.

  • frequent crashes
    by bjjohnson1515 on 2016-05-05 at 7:58 PM

    App does not work and crashes every time I open a DXF file. Do not purchase app until this issue has been resolved!

  • I'd give no stars if possible
    by Eidolonv2 on 2016-04-20 at 1:14 AM

    I want my money back. This APP won't open anything. As a matter of fact I can't get past the page that asks from where do I wish to open a file. The shame is I use the PC version regularly. Sure heck won't work on my fully up to date iPhone. This really pisses me off. I WANT MY MONEY BACK!

  • Unable to open any of my files
    by dcavalie on 2016-02-13 at 8:36 PM

    I am using an iPad mini with iOS 9.2.1. The app did not let me even try to open any of my own files, let alone SolidWorks files. So, unfortunately it is useless to me. I'm glad I only bought the basic app for $2 and not the proverbs ion for $10. I don't want my money back, I want what I paid for.

  • Ready for the next version
    by Hcetigol on 2016-01-22 at 10:06 PM

    Works well with simple assemblies. Starts to slow down a lot when your assembly has more than 100 parts. Normally I wouldn’t have an issue with that but some of the games are rendering with a lot more complexity than a 100 part assembly. Basically I’m looking for better performance before I can give it a better rating.

  • Not any good.
    by 3D models on 2015-11-11 at 12:33 PM

    I couldn't open any files native or on the cloud (no options to open any files). I am running an iPhone 6s. This was a waste of money.

  • Good but missing features
    by JeffTNYC on 2015-09-10 at 3:42 AM

    This applications is good as it lets me view my 3d Solidworks model .EPRT file. However I need to have the ability to have measurements. It should show me width/height in either milimeters or inches and also allow me to select faces and get a measurement for it as well. It would also be nice to be abkle to see how much material was needed to build a model when showing a client. I heard that some of this can be accomplished in the $9.99 version. I scratch my head at this as this viewer is completely free for the Mac and PC.

  • Does not work
    by Brandon11496 on 2015-08-14 at 2:04 AM

    Does not show up as a possible choice for a file. App does not work as described.

  • Please give my money back!
    by Carabac on 2015-07-26 at 8:19 PM

    I need my money back. App does not show up on my list of Open In apps so I can't import anything I need to view. Viewing nice sample files alone is not going to cut it. Very disappointed! I am using an IPhone 6

  • Crashes when opening 20mb drawing
    by PieterHE on 2015-05-16 at 7:53 AM

    App crashes when opening drawing of 20mb and beyond. Ipad Air 32gb.

  • Did what I wanted mostly
    by Bill86404 on 2015-04-24 at 5:11 PM

    App price was good. Great to look at solid works file. Quick and responsive. Lacks ability to measure in any way, and $10 was a bit high for me to accomplish that. Great to view designers concepts quickly. Low overhead so works great. I would have given 4 stars if it measured.

  • Poor app interoperability
    by ssnattacksub on 2015-04-07 at 7:51 PM

    Cannot open .step or .stp file from Dropbox unable to view many files generated by DS Solidworks.

  • Crash when opening drawing on IPad4
    by BoatingMad on 2015-03-14 at 11:56 PM

    I had high hopes for this app but when I purchased it and downloaded my first drawing every time the app crash! I tried 2 more drawings and same thing! Developer please fix this issue or refund me.

  • Garbage
    by dover41 on 2015-02-25 at 2:37 PM

    Can't even open a file. Use A360 from Autodesk. It works just fine.

  • 👍
    by Me122333444455555isjdjdjejsjs on 2015-02-18 at 2:25 AM

    Very impressive. Works great.

  • Doesn't Work With OS 8.1.3
    by Woodbubba on 2015-02-07 at 10:41 PM

    App won't import my files from either email or iCloud. Haven't attempted tethering to a computer with iTunes.

  • Files turn up blank in the viewer now
    by team-ram-rod on 2014-11-18 at 2:06 PM

    After you email the files to yourself, it shows up blank in the app. not sure why this is, but it used to work. using SW 2014, you'd think it would be compatable.

  • High quality rendering
    by Jkcars on 2014-11-06 at 10:27 PM

    I've always been impressed with this app's feature set. Originally I used this on an iPhone 5 and while the frame rates were pretty good the rendering was horrible. All fuzzy and no clear lines. With the latest update and the new iPhone 6 Plus this app has become everything I imagined it could be.

  • AR Needs far more development
    by Gearsawe on 2014-10-17 at 8:59 PM

    I had high hopes to use the AR in an Educational environment to display some 3D model over and existing structure. But the Origin is not predictable with relation to the marker. The Origin is not that of the model done in SolidWorks but some point in the center of the geometry and then I would think the bottom of the model would act if it was planted on the marker but appears that is hovers somewhere above or maybe below, making it impossible to align it with real world geometry or at least I have not found a way yet. It would be great if the Origin of an assembly was the center of the marker. The marker itself has the Y axis labeled wrong in relation to SW Y axis and what you see on the screen. +X is towards the Right edge of the paper, +Z is toward Bottom edge of paper and +Y is Up off the surface of the paper. The next big problem is maybe the iPad itself not sure. Background is out of focus when it tries to find the marker making the model jump around and flicker too much when the marker is clearly visible. With every little movement the camera goes in and out of focus. Briefly I notice it is in focus then it goes out of focus. When it is completely out of focus the marker cannot be found and the model disappears. Another problem is the shadow can’t be turned off. Maybe with pro it can be. The marker may not always be the ground. There needs to be a method to calibrate perspective of the camera with the perspective of the model so it can be aligned better. If you just want to view the model itself with no AR then the program works fine. I specifically got this for the AR reason and I am finding out now I can’t do what was planned. It is crazy that Solidwork is PC based and AR functionality is only for iOS. In my opinion the AR function is still beta quality.

  • Good but needs work
    by Ousboui on 2014-09-28 at 4:02 AM

    Opened my parts and assemblies instantly and I was able to manipulate them smoothly. The controls are well thought out. Well worth the price to be able to do just this. However, 1) The program has a video to demo the AR feature and it cannot play it without stopping and claiming you need to close all apps to free up memory. 2) You can't change the scene or add real view graphics and shadows. 3) I was unable to see the decals on my parts and it was very important for me to be able to see these.

  • NOPE!
    by Nick Namis Taken on 2014-08-27 at 12:48 AM

    Crashes, crashes, then crashes again. I'd say "Not quite ready for Prime Time". Even the demo AR video crashes. Glad I didn't pay for the "Pro" version. Sorry, this app is a big fat ZEEE-RO in my book. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME, MONEY, OR DEVICE MEMORY ON THIS USELESS ATTEMPT OF AN APP!!!

  • Great app
    by grizzlyadams760 on 2014-07-31 at 2:59 AM

    Great app if you don't need to take measurements. Would be nice if you could upgrade to the pro version without having to waste the first $2. Other than that it works seamlessly. Plus the AR is pretty amazing.

  • AWESOME! Perfect for my needs
    by Kingdaddy2000 on 2014-05-09 at 11:58 PM

    I needed a SolidWorks viewer for a project I'm working, and this app is truly amazing. It works better than the downloadable viewer I have from the same company on my iMac. I can hit the play button and watch my product rotate, or better yet, I can smoothly move it simply with the touch of my finger. Well done.
