SOLIDWORKS Electrical

SOLIDWORKS Electrical packages provide a range of electrical system design functionality to meet the needs of design professionals. All project design data is synchronized with real-time, bi-directional updates between 2D schematics and the 3D model.

SOLIDWORKS Electrical: Update and Replace Part Data

SOLIDWORKS ELECTRICAL Replace PartTypically an engineer may spend countless hours manually reviewing and updating previous projects every time a new part is released. In SOLIDWORKS Electrical, you can reduce this tedious process to a rapid workflow that only takes a few minutes. Update and replace part data using one of two tools: the “Update data” tool or the “Replace data” tool, both located under the Process Tab as illustrated below.

Using SolidWorks Drawings in SolidWorks Electrical Projects

electrical-solidworks-drawingsTypically, we work with our schematics in our 2D application and our 3D assemblies in SolidWorks, while accessing the same database. In this example, we will create our electrical cabinet in a SolidWorks drawing document and add that to the electrical database.

An Introduction to Macros in SolidWorks Electrical

macrosTypically, in our day-to-day design process, we reuse our work. Let’s say that I design a motor schematic, and I wire it the same way. With “macros”, in SolidWorks Electrical, we can take those designs and reuse them in any project. Don’t be thrown off by the term “macro”, as you won’t need to do any programming or record any steps. All it requires is a drag and drop.
