What is EASM file?

EASM file extension is used for files containing 2D/3D drawing created with CAD software and generated by specialized eDrawings Publisher plugin. However, such file is only a representation of the project, not the actual project/design. EASM file stores related parts of the project in a compressed XML format.

Concept of EASM file

Project saved as EASM file can be viewed and printed, but not edited. Creator of the projects thus has a guarantee that the recipients of the files will not be able to access restricted project data. Because EASM file is stored in compressed XML format and small in size, it can be easily used for CAD project web distribution purposes.

Additional information

  1. eDrawings plugin files are based on HOOPS file format created by TechSoft America.
  2. EASM file format is similar to EDRW and EPRT formats.
