    I cannot believe SW would allow its 2 big competitors have access to one of
    the best tools in SW, E-Drawings. I know for a fact that we have beat
    competition who was using Pro-E for new projects because we could
    communicate with E-Drawings to Marketing Staff at customers rather than the
    good old 2d drawing or a still jpeg. I always looked at E-Drawings as a
    competitive advantage to using SW over the other packages.

    Rocko, SolidWorks Corp probably doesn't have any control over it. It
    LICENSES the eDrawings technology from the same company making eDrawings
    for AutoCAD and Pro/Engineer. That company is Geometric Software

    .... To get them hooked on the crack, so they will upgrade to
    e-drawings pro. Become the standard to unseat PDF.

    Why not? To get eDrawings you have to fill out name, address, etc. Gets

    SolidWorks themselves distribute the AutoCAD Publisher, not Geometric
    Software (if you download eDrawings from the SolidWorks website, the
    AutoCAD publisher is bundled in it).

    I think SolidWorks can control which applications can have an
    eDrawings Publisher. After all, they LICENSE the technology, so they
    would have control over what is done with the techonology. right ? I'm
    sure no company would license its proprietary technology without
    having a say in what is done with it.
