SolidWorks® Electrical simplifies the design of electrical systems with intelligent tools, extensive component libraries and real-time integration between 2D schemes and 3D models.
By using SolidWorks Electrical, the design and documentation of your electrical wiring diagrams can be expanded with SolidWorks Electrical 3D to deliver highly flexible and user-friendly software tools that significantly reduce the time required to develop both machines and other products that include electrical circuits and systems.
SolidWorks Electrical includes schematic tools for planning electrical systems. The software contains an extensive database with thousands of symbols and more than half a million manufactured parts that can be built into a circuit.
Eliminate costly waste of time with recycling of constructions
With SolidWorks Electrical's option to copy and reuse parts of existing circuits in the current project, the development time for new products can be significantly reduced. There is also the opportunity for the members of the design team to work together to ensure rapid development of new products.
The software's built-in automated management tools streamline the design of complex PLC connections, making it easier to generate drawings, wiring lists, "from-to" lists and other documentation for production.
- SolidWorks Electrical is a very comprehensive and flexible program that includes all components and its functions to be reused. For example, symbols and circuits. The flexibility is reflected in the design tools. For example, you can build your project with all components before you start creating drawings, explains Annica Lindfors, Technical Consultant at PLM Group, and adds: Together with the database, the program's flexibility gives the user complete control over both design and documentation.
3D electrical construction with SolidWorks
With SolidWorks Electrical 3D*, it is possible to easily integrate schematics from SolidWorks Electrical into the standard 3D model of a machine or other product.
The software allows designers to place 3D models of all electrical systems in the standard 3D model and run wires / cables / cable assembly for connection of all electrical equipment. This allows you to determine the specific locations and paths to determine the lengths of wires / cables / wires before the equipment is built. This ensures even production while reducing both waste and extra costs. 2D schematic and 3D models are synchronized bidirectionally in real time so all changes are updated automatically.
- The opportunity to work together and design a multi-user environment where the entire project is continuously updated saves time and ensures the quality of the design, emphasizes Annica Lindfors. If a member of the design team makes a change, such as adding a component, this is immediately updated for all participants in the project. The fact that the electrical and mechanical engineers can collaborate in the combined project, which is updated in real time, raises the design work to a higher level.
