Electrical Packages


SOLIDWORKS Electrical 2D

Powerful 2D schematic design tools quickly develop embedded electrical systems for machines or products, with built-in symbol libraries, manufacturer part data, and 3D component models. Automated management tools streamline design of complex PLC connections.

SOLIDWORKS Electrical 3D

Integrate electrical schematic design data from SOLIDWORKS Electrical with the 3D model of a machine or other product. You can place all electrical components in 3D, then connect everything and determine lengths of wires, cables, and harnesses.

SOLIDWORKS Electrical Professional

A single package combines the 2D electrical schematic functionality of SOLIDWORKS Electrical and the 3D integration of SOLIDWORKS Electrical 3D.

SOLIDWORKS Electrical greatly simplifies 2D electrical schematic creation by providing an intuitive interface that gives you faster results. Bi-directional integration in real time with SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD provides better collaboration and productivity, resulting in fewer product delays, more consistent and standardized designs, lower costs, and faster time-to-market.

Share 2D schematic parts lists and connection information in real time to simplify implementation and increase collaboration between electrical and mechanical design

Generate great designs faster

  • Easier reuse of existing designs.
  • Enable multi-users to work on a project to add resources when needed.
  • Flexible schematic tools for fast electrical design are needed.
  • Automation tools to streamline complex electrical design tasks.
  • Ensure superior product performance through refined design.

Reduce Manufacturing Defects and Scrap

  • Coordinated BOM - including MCAD and ECAD.
  • Plan exact cable/wire/harness paths.
  • Determine planning of cable/wire lengths.
  • Ensure electrical items will fit in 3D long before production.
  • Plan the entire product early before any parts are made.

Reduce Overall Costs

  • Avoid redesign costs by coordinating mechanical and electrical groups
  • Understand full BOM cost early – using one BOM.
  • Ensure MCAD and ECAD design changes are synchronized.
  • Incomplete specification of electrical details.
  • Prevent redesign costs through collaboration.

Integrating electrical and control systems into our mining equipment is a challenge. SOLIDWORKS electrical products target our type of design tasks.
