I am sorry to ask the same question twice, but I cannot find any "reply" button when I look at suggestions.

I received several replies suggesting using 2D or 3d pdf files and/or DraftSight.

 

I have tried DraftSight and it will not open an EASM file.  I don't think it has the tools that are a traditional part of the EDrawings Reader to allow exploring the drawing (rotate, hide, make transparent, etc).  I  have not yet tried the 3D or 2D pdf solutions, but expect they will suffer the same limitation.

 

My need (my question) is to find a way to have the traditional EReader capabilities in a free program that runs on 32 bit WIndows computers.

 

If this is not possible any longer with SolidWorks, is there an alternative 3D drafting program that does support a 32 bit reader?
