SOLIDWORKS Electrical 2016 Assign Component Feature

Article by Delvin Masilamani updated September 27, 2015


The enhanced SOLIDWORKS Electrical 2016 Assign Component is a time saving feature that will put a smile on your face as it reduces the number of clicks required to assign component to multiple symbols. Historically you would right-click each symbol to associate them to the same component.

The following steps are to be used for this new feature:

  1. Select all the symbols placed on the schematic
  2. Right-click and pick Assign component from the shortcut menu
  3. Select the Component from the tree and pick on the green check mark to complete the operation

You will now find that multiple symbols have been simultaneously assigned to the same Component.

Note: You can assign objects to Connectors, PLCs & terminals as well
