SOLIDWORKS Electrical Schematic


3 Days



Recommended Experience Level

  • SOLIDWORKS Essentials
  • Having SOLIDWORKS Electrical and Draftsight


The goal of this course is to teach users how to use SOLIDWORKS Electrical to optimize schematic drawings by integrating electrical and mechanical design processes.  Our schematic class is the fastest way to learn how to symbols, wires, components, and parts are all integrated together through a SQL database.  The ability to quickly make links throughout a schematic designs allows users to maximize their time designing and not tediously documenting.
