Convert SolidWorks eDrawing data file to AutoCAD drawing.

We have found one software suitable in our database for this conversion.

In most cases you cannot directly convert .edrw files (SolidWorks eDrawing) to anything else, simply because these files were exported in a publishing format that is only meant for viewing and not for further editing.

It largely depends whenever the file was 'locked' during the export. Unlocked files may be potentially opened in SolidWorks (with eDrawing plugin of sorts) and saved as standard files. For locked files, there is really no way to directly recover them unless you have access to the source.

In these cases, the best course of action is to obtain the original SolidWorks source (most likely .slddrw file), which can be potentially exported to DWG format in several programs or even dedicated CAD converters (see slddrw to dwg conversion).

However, it is likely that to handle these files, you will need access to SolidWorks and third party apps won't help you much.

The table with program actions contains information about what each program is capable of doing with their files. This may be a good pointer for further searches for certain file conversions and help you find the converter you are looking for if our search result is insufficient for you. However, it is far from perfect and may sometimes show results which are not really usable because of the nature of the software handles the files. So a conversion that appears as possible, just because of matched actions, may in fact not be possible.

Files with edrw extension are so called eDrawings, publish only exports of technical drawings or models prepared using SolidWorks 3D CAD/CAM software.


Files with dwg extension are used for the original CAD format originally introduced in Autodesk AutoCAD. The latest version of DWG format is usuaually proprietary and can only be created in AutoCAD. Other CAD programs can usually import it but not create its proprietary form. Because of this, DWGs are often exported to DXF interchange format so that they can be seamlessly used in other CAD programs.
