Get More Value From Every Engineering Hour

A Remarkably Fast Drawing Viewer That Overlays Important Data Directly Onto PDFs

web usage.gif

Drawing Navigator is a powerful browser built specifically for machinery design engineers.

Everyone Uses

PDFs are an irreplaceable part of many design and manufacturing companies. They are a mainstay from cost-estimating and R&D all the way through component purchasing and final production.

PDFs stored in decades of project folders are hard to find or can even get lost entirely. Parts end up being redesigned even though they already exist wasting valuable engineering effort.

Spend your limited engineering hours wisely and get the most out of them. Don't redesign existing parts and instantly find those parts with smart-search and custom tags. Drawing Navigator links your PDF drawings together and allows you to move up and down the drawing tree.

I never use our old software anymore. It's not as easy as the navigator.

Engineering Designer, Manufacturing Company

A quick demo turned into an hour long show and tell. 

Even the engineering manager stopped working for over 45 minutes to test it. He was impressed. Really impressed.

Design Engineer, Manufacturing Company

Someone can bring me a random drawing or part number and I can find the top level assemblies it belongs to in seconds.
