eDrawings was one of the features of SolidWorks that caught my eye back when I was buying SolidWorks years ago. Every year SolidWorks ships updates to this ubiquitous viewing tool and after the past 10 years or so the features have stacked up.

eDrawings has become my default viewer for opening SolidWorks, DXF, STL, PRO/E and even SolidWorks templates. I also use it from OSX to view and measure any of my SW documents with all the Professional features. My favorite nuggets is CTRL+E... ~Lou
