SOLIDWORKS Electrical schematic design capabilities simplify development of embedded electrical systems with single-line and multi-line schematic tools for planning your electrical systems. I asked Digital Dimensions Application Engineer, Brad Rach, about his favorite features of SOLIDWORKS Electrical and this is what he had to say:
Number One: Collaborative Environment
Work collaboratively with your cross-discipline teams– sharing documents relevant to the project and offering a greater level of transparency through the design process.
Number Two: Automated Reports
Creating BOMs, wire lists, and terminal block drawings is simplified with this software. With the click of a button you can generate your design relevant supporting documents, including: wire lists with appropriate wire length calculation communicated from SOLIDWORKS, a detailed Bill of Materials accounting for all the components in the electrical design, and connections lists that automatically update.
Number Three: Intuitive and Response Searches
The SOLIDWORKS Electrical backbone allows for advanced filtering of
the various libraries to more easily locate your desired components. Can’t remember the part number of that contractor? A quick search dialog will allow you to set the parameters of the component you are attempting to identify.
Number Four: Automatic Component Designators
The software identifies new components with the next preset designator to save the headache of keeping track of it on your own.
Number Five: Integrated Revision Control
Revision control of your Electrical Projects is built in with SOLIDWORKS Electrical. You can validate, verify, and release your design from directly within the project.
Number Six: Improve Quality of Finished Designs
SOLIDWORKS Electrical allows you to utilize 3D models to foresee potential design problems like using an exceptionally large component in an exceptionally small cabinet.
Number Seven: Reutilize Old Library Symbols
Comfortable with your existing 2,000 symbol library in Visio? Those symbols can easily import for use in SOLIDWORKS Electrical.
Number Eight: Design Rules Check
SOLIDWORKS Electrical can point out commonly overlooked design flaws or inconsistencies to improve the design and review process.
