What is an EDRW file?

An EDRW file is CAD drawing exported using Dassault Systemes eDrawings Publisher, a plug-in for various CAD applications. It contains a 2D drawing that may represent various mechanical designs, such as tools, casings, or building materials. EDRW files can be opened in eDrawings Viewer, a free application available on Dassault Systemes' website.

eDrawings Publisher is a plug-in available for Dassault Systemes SolidWorks, Autodesk AutoCAD, Dassault Systemes CATIA, Autodesk Inventor, Trimble SketchUp, and other CAD applications. It allows users to export CAD models in compressed, easy-to-open formats, making it easier to share models over the Internet and with users who do not have access to paid CAD software.

Drawings exported using eDrawings Publisher are read-only, meaning they cannot be edited by those who open them. However, any user with access to Dassault Systemes' free eDrawings Viewer can open, view, and print the drawing an EDRW file contains.

How to open an EDRW file

You can open EDRW files in Dassault Systems eDrawings Viewer (Windows, Mac) or the mobile versions of eDrawings (iOS, Android). Both applications include tools that allow users to switch between drawing views and examine drawings in-depth. eDrawings Viewer allows users to print drawings and export them in other file formats.
