Technical Drawing Software - Create technical diagrams rapidly with rich examples and templates.
Today's companies face a number of unique competitive challenges. They
must deal with increased pressure from competitors, rapid changes in
technology and the shortest product development cycles in history. As a
result of these pressures, companies are being forced to re-engineer and right size their organizations, which means significant changes in staffing,
facilities, production methods and business models. As they do so, they are
discovering he increasingly important role that technical drawings play in
For many companies, the cost-effective creation and distribution of
technical drawings is a mission-critical component in their plans to become
more competitive. Whether they use technical drawings to design new
products, improve manufacturing productivity, manage facilities, or improve
processes and procedures, the ability to efficiently create and manage
technical drawings can have a direct impact on a company's bottom line.
Surprisingly, many companies are still using inefficient and costly
methods to create and manage the technical drawings that are a key part of
their businesses. While they typically have implemented a new generation of
Windows business applications, technical drawing software has often lagged
A revolutionary product called Edraw Technical is changing this, and an
increasing number of companies are taking advantage of the cost
savings and efficiency that this product offers. It is a new technical
drawing software with lots of examples and templates, supporting to draw flow
charts, organizational charts and network diagrams. On this white paper, we
will discuss how Edraw Technical can help you become more competitive by
allowing you to:
- Create technical drawings quicker and more effectively
- Create technical drawing more efficiently
- Make your drawings more intelligent
- Integrate your technical drawings with other Windows applications
Create Technical Drawings More Efficiently
Edraw Technical's drag-and-drop interface combined with our Smart Shapes
technology, which means that if someone can use a mouse, he can produce
professional-quality drawings. EDraw's ease of use means first-time users
are productive in a few hours, and experienced users find it the most
efficient way to create their technical drawings. Edraw Technical's power
and ease of use result in increased employee productivity. Drawings are
created more quickly and accurately. Less time is spent looking through
manuals, and more time is spent drawing.
Edraw Technical also facilitates the implementation of corporate drawing
standards. Smart Shapes can be created, which automatically enforces drawing
standards. And templates can be defined for standard drawing sizes and title
blocks. If your corporate standards change, automatic updating of drawings
is made possible by a feature called master shapes. When you create an Edraw
drawing, every unique shape is an "instance" of a master shape that is
stored with the drawing. These master shapes are invisible to the user, but
perform an invaluable function. If you don't need them, you don't have to
know that they're there. But if a change occurs in your corporate standards
and you need to replace one symbol with another, master shapes allow you to
automatically substitute one symbol with another throughout your drawing -
without making painstaking and inefficient manual changes.

Software Features for Creating Technical Drawings
- Smart connectors. In most technical drawing packages, connections
are created by drawing lines between objects. If the user tries to move
the objects around, the lines are no longer connected to the objects,
and the lines must be redrawn. In Edraw Technical, lines automatically
stay connected to objects, which is especially important when creating
network diagrams, engineering schematics, process flow diagrams and
other technical drawings where critical linkage and flow information is
designated by the lines that connect objects together.
- Dimensioning. Edraw Technical includes a full set of easy to use
drag-and-drop dimensions, including horizontal, vertical, aligned,
radial, diameter, angular, baseline, and ordinate dimensions as well as
a full set of callouts and labels.
- Support standard drawing sizes. Edraw Technical supports all
standard architectural and engineering drawing sizes, including ANSI A
through E and ISO A4 through A0, as well as user defined custom sizes.
- Page layering. Users can create and edit "layered" drawings in Edraw
by linking multiple background pages to a single foreground page. This
capability can be used to create standard background and title blocks,
or to manage technical drawings with multiple layers of information.
Create Technical Drawing More Efficiently
Once a drawing is created, it must be distributed to the people who need to use it. It is Built to Work Easily with Other Programs.

Create More Perfect Drawings
The power of the computer offers an opportunity to move beyond manual
drawing methods, and to start creating truly intelligent drawings. Rather
than just use the computer as an electronic drafting board, Edraw Technical
facilitates the integration of drawings and related database information, which enables you to reach a new level of productivity.
Any shape in Edraw Technical can have database information associated
with it, such as price, part number, description, or any other relevant
information. This allows the automatic generation of bills of materials,
parts lists, cost estimates and asset tracking. Drawings can even be
created automatically from databases, eliminating the need to manually
create your technical drawings.
Integration with Other Applications
These capabilities, combined with state-of-the-art OLE support and
integration with databases, make Edraw Technical the leader in Windows
Lower Your Training and Support Costs
There are a number of costs that you must consider when implementing a
software solution in your company. The three most important factors are the
initial cost of the software, the cost of training and the cost of support. Edraw Technical offers considerable advantages over traditional technical
drawing software in all of these key areas. In contrast to specialized CAD
software, Edraw Technical is priced consistently with other mainstream
Windows applications. In many cases, Edraw Technical is only one-tenth of
the cost of high-end CAD software. This allows wider deployment and
considerable cost savings over other solutions.
One of the most important costs is the training required to ensure that
personnel in your company can effectively use the technical drawing software
you choose to implement. Flowcharting software typically requires
specialized training, and can take three to six months to learn. In
contrast, most people are effectively using Edraw Technical in just a few
days due to its unparalleled ease of use.
Before the introduction of Edraw technology, companies had to support
many different graphics applications. Business users typically used
different graphics software from technical users.
