Product releases for us here at Javelin Technologies is like counting the days to Christmas and wondering what is wrapped up for us under that tree. SolidWorks has delivered as usual and I’ve listed the Top 10 feature enhancements for SolidWorks Electrical 2015 that will continue to keep our users happy:

1) Importing or Exporting directly from Excel in to a Project

Project data can be directly changed through external excel files. Mass project data updates can now be processed externally and then re-imported to be used in the project.
