Hi, I work for monroe county department of eviromental. My job is a mechanic for the waste water colloction system and treatment plant. I had done many mechanical machinary rebuilds from pumps to large gear box's,modified eqipment base or structure for integrety, also we have restored pumping station; so you can imagine the duties being conducted. I personally own a IPad and Im currently have been using solidworks for the department, two weeks now. the goal is to use SW for quick redesigns and modification before any project are initiated; so I find the edrawing app. useful out in the field. I've yet used it, But my goal is if theirs a station or in the facility needing a modifiaction or installation we go to SW create it then to edrawing where I or someone else will have every info needed to make the job easier and/or successful. I hope that help
Hi Mario! Sounds like a nice application for field use. You could take eDwgs into the filed on your iPad, and mark up any revisions needed. When you return to the office, you not only have the info for your revisions, but you have a record of your changes & why you made them in eDwgs. Let me know how this works out for you! Thanks!
I am currently a student and soon to be Professor of Mechanical Engineering. I use SolidWorks to design and model material performance in a variety of test situations. I have used SolidWorks to design a new testing device that will hopefully allow new experimental data to be gathered. SolidWorks is very helpful in providing design specifications as well as finite element modeling of structures.
I planned to use eDrawings app as primarily a very convenient way to show parts and assemblies to other researches, machinists, students, and supervisors to discuss design applications. I would not plan on using eDrawings to make any design modifications as I think those are more readily done on a PC, however, having the ability to show parts and assemblies with all of the normal view features (rotating, zooming, exploded view, etc.) real time vice just showing captured images would be extremely useful.
Unforunately (and I know not related to this thread), I can not get eDrawings to even slighlty begin to work on my iPad with any of my models.
I think this app has great potential for viewing and sharing designs vice actually creating or conducting large edits to them.
