I have SOLIDWORKS Student Edition 2016-2017. This includes SOLIDWORKS Premium and eDrawings Pro. I am attempting to include configurations in an eDrawings file, but the popup for selecting the configurations never appears.   I have tried multiple files, tried 'Save As' and 'Publish eDrawings File', and it never works. I have tried reinstalling… (Show more)

When I view Solidworks assembly drawings in eDrawings 2016, the object lines appear as dashed lines instead of solid lines. On part drawings, everything appears fine.

But many times the edrawings do not reflect the checked in solidworks drawing, Too many times the shop has worked off of outdated prints caused by edrawings not capable of doing a rebuild or get latest version, is there a way to have the Solidworks file… (Show more)

Are there any tips for getting better performance out of E-Drawings?  We used Design Review with Inventor and E-drawings is so slow its almost unusable when working with EASM files.    Also are there other solutions than e-drawings to get 3d models that people can measure and look out without running solidworks?

I do not need to create a complex solidworks DWG file, since the item I am dealing with is a basic cable with modified connectors.   Is there the something I can use to take the drawing view of the cable from the eDrawing (as a DXF file or… (Show more)

I'm using the eDrawings Model Viewer, and I heard that the eDrawings Professional edition could be used to view step (or stp) files. However, when I tried this on a machine with eDrawings Professional, I got an error message "You need the full version of eDrawings to perform this function".   So I wonder... is the eDrawings Model Viewer (the… (Show more)

Am I missing something, or do I have to buy an expensive 64-Bit Windows tablet to enable my workshop colleagues to view CAD models? I have a cheap tablet (32-Bit) with eDrawings on it, but eDrawings files saved from 2016 won't open. Is there a solution? I can't see any tablet lasting long out there, so buying an expensive one is not a sensible… (Show more)
