Combine both single-line and multi-line drawings on the same schematic, while maintaining associativity.
Generate 2D panel representations from an electrical schematic, with 2D outlines of electrical components.
Electrical contacts are automatically cross-referenced in real time and synchronized based on the availability and type of contacts from manufacturer-specific components.
Integrated Symbol Library that provides easy access to electrical design elements and components.
SOLIDWORKS Electrical Schematics is linked to 3D SOLIDWORKS assemblies, facilitating the verification of proper fit, planning of all wire, cable, harness routes, and calculation of all wire lengths prior to any assembly.
The Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) management tools automate many PLC wiring design tasks, along with the ability to import PLC data and labels.
Synchronized, bi-directional environment enables multiple users to work on the same project simultaneously in real time for easier project collaboration.
Addition of global project setting for drawing style, project attributes and wire-style managers.
Enhanced ability to add external links to PDF files, enhanced data fields, and addition of cable lengths for pre-defined and custom cables.
Enhanced support of index and passive symbols.
SOLIDWORKS Electrical 3D addresses the needs of multi-user and cross disciplinary projects with a synchronized design environment between the electrical and mechanical teams to readily implement schematically-defined electrical systems into a SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD model. Multiple electrical and mechanical engineers can work on the same project simultaneously in real time using SOLIDWORKS Electrical 3D’s advanced database technology with its bi-directional, multi-user environment.
Combining SOLIDWORKS CAD and Electrical technologies, SOLIDWORKS Electrical 3D provides a design environment enhanced for electrical 3D cabinet design. This cohesive environment is synchronized in real time without the use of external files and can utilize existing CAD designs. With SOLIDWORKS automation tools, SOLIDWORKS Electrical 3D provides comprehensive electrical 3D cabinet design and documentation capabilities.
Extensive library of industry-standard schematic symbols (IEC, ANSI, JIS, GB) combined with a database of manufacturer parts to provide an easily customizable and adaptable parts database through easy-to-use import tools.
Automatically generate terminal drawings based on and synchronized with the real-time design.
From wire naming to project name formulas, SOLIDWORKS Electrical includes enhanced formula capabilities.
Web-based content portal providing access to an extensive library of industry-standard schematic symbols and a database of manufacturer parts.
SOLIDWORKS Electrical Schematics are bi-directionally linked and allow multi-user interaction in real time. ECAD and MCAD share a common database, ensuring consistency and facilitating creation of a single, unified Bill of Materials (BOM).
Powerful, easy-to-use connector wizard helps simplify the creation, design, and use of electrical connectors.
Automated publishing of schematic data, drawings, and reports for archival and revision control.
SOLIDWORKS Electrical synchronizes all project design data in real time, bi-directionally in a multi-user collaborative environment between 2D schematics and the 3D model. This synchronization unifies key information (such as BOM and design data) between design disciplines and users.
Enhanced support for number group options, reuse of unused wire marks, natural ordering support, and enhanced DWG import capabilities.
Support of 3D terminal strip management with capability to renumber and set component terminal properties. Additional capabilities include the ability to add manufacturer parts, circuits, and capability to add accessory components to terminal strip.
Advanced SOLIDWORKS routing technology to simplify the auto-routing process for wire, cables, and harness in the 3D CAD model.
SOLIDWORKS Electrical 3D creates a virtual “design-in-place” electrical system development environment that provides auto-routing of a schematically-defined electrical harness in a SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD model, which simplifies harness development while eliminating errors. Once the virtual harness has been created, SOLIDWORKS Electrical 3D can produce detailed assembly drawings using the built-in drawing tools. These drawing creation tools include capabilities to create ballooned assemblies, pin board or cut list drawings, as well as associated BOM documentation.
