SOLIDWORKS Electrical solutions are integral parts of the SOLIDWORKS design and simulation portfolio that help Design Engineers reduce the risk inherent in innovation and get their products to market faster with less physical prototyping to decrease costs. With a consistent, powerful, intuitive set of electrical design capabilities, all fully integrated with the SOLIDWORKS solution portfolio, designers can establish an integrated design early in the design process and avoid costly design rework.
SOLIDWORKS Electrical Schematic Standard
Simplify the development of embedded electrical systems for machines and other applications, with single-line and multi-line schematic tools for planning your electrical systems. Access more than 500,000 manufactured parts and thousands of symbols in the integrated library database and speed up development by copying and reusing common circuit segments within a project or to other projects. Use SOLIDWORKS Electrical schematics in SOLIDWORKS Electrical 3D (link to this page), with bi-directional linking that captures design changes in both the schematic AND the 3D model in real time.
SOLIDWORKS Electrical Schematic Professional
Combine the electrical schematic functionality of SOLIDWORKS Electrical Schematic with the 3D modeling capabilities of SOLIDWORKS Electrical 3D and do it all in one powerful, easy-to-use package. SOLIDWORKS Electrical Professional is ideally suited for the user that supports both the electrical and mechanical design integration. Single-line and multi-line schematic tools, including an integrated library of thousands of symbols and parts, enable quick planning of your embedded electrical system. Design teams can work concurrently on one or more projects and keep all work current with real-time bi-directional updates. You can integrate SOLIDWORKS Electrical schematics with the 3D model and then place 3D versions of all electrical parts into the model, creating paths and connections with wires/cables/harnesses. All work in 2D and 3D is synchronized in real time, and you can create fully integrated BOMs that include both mechanical and electrical parts.
SOLIDWORKS Electrical 3D
Integrate your electrical schematic design from SOLIDWORKS Electrical to your 3D model. Designers can place 3D versions of all electrical parts into their model and run wires/cables/harnesses in 3D to connect all electrical equipment. Plan specific locations and paths and ensure accurate lengths of wire/cable/harnesses before equipment is built. This will allow you to reduce scrap costs and ensure consistent manufacturing. Your 2D schematics and 3D models are synchronized bi-directionally in real time, so any changes are automatically updated.
SOLIDWORKS Electrical Printed Circuit Board (PCB)
A professional PCB design tool capable of meeting the demands of today’s products, which allows you to develop the most efficient schematics for your board layouts. Integration of PCB design seamlessly with SOLIDWORKS CAD, with a managed ECO change process and distinct workflows to keep you at your most productive SOLIDWORKS has combined the best technology in PCB design with an easy-to-use interface and linked it with SOLIDWORKS CAD to give you an efficient design experience that gets your PCBs done quickly and easily — just what you need when PCBs are only a part of your product design workflow.
