Features of SOLIDWORKS Electrial Professional software

Includes both 2D and 3D capabilities:

  • 2D electrical schematic drawings.
  • Multi‐user SQL database under the product.
  • Import AutoCAD Electrical symbols directly into SOLIDWORKS Electrical.
  • Single line schematic planning tools directly linked to detailed multi‐line versions.
  • Large Library of electrical parts data from manufacturers: > 500k and growing.
  • Symbol creation wizard: make it easy to prepare 2D schematic symbols.
  • Powerful tools for wiring PLCs and terminal strips that cut the time required to add advanced.
  • Unlimited schematic sheet count.
  • Import schematic design data into SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD software.
  • Enable placement of all electrical components in the 3D model.
  • Auto‐route cables/wires based on 2D schematic data.
  • Separation/segregation checking: ensure electrical runs are separated to prevent.
  • Electromagnetic interference (e.g. separate 3 phase AC power from pH signals from sensors).
  • Determine cable/wire/harness lengths needed, and provide real‐time links to 2D schematic.
  • Provide path planning/space allocation and collision detection for electrical cable/wire runs.

The Benefits of Integrating 2D Electrical with 3D Mechanical

Eliminate Hidden Costs

Prevent mistakes and extra costs with your 3D model and schematic linked bi-directionally in real time, as well as a combined BOM for electrical and mechanical.

Reduce Manufacturing Defects and Scrap

With items selected during schematic creation added to the 3D model, you can ensure fit, check for collision/clash, calculate lengths, plan for efficient material usage, and reduce scrap. Documentation is better and more consistent throughout development, reducing mistakes.

Improve Time-to-Market

Coordinating electrical and mechanical functions enables teams to work in parallel to save time. Specific time-saving benefits include combining mechanical and electrical BOMs to streamline production planning and faster planning of cable/wire/harness paths using the 3D model.

Ensure Consistent Manufacturing and Assembly

Including electrical information from the schematic in the 3D model enables detailed planning, documentation, and visualization of overall product design, helping to ensure consistent assembly from unit to unit.

Streamline Development to Reduce Costs

Faster design, better communication between departments, synchronized plans, up-to-date documentation, and shorter time-to-market all add up to reduced costs throughout the product lifecycle.
