There are a few notable SOLIDWORKS Electrical 2016 interface updates which will definitely improve your user experience with this electrical product.
In the Reports Manager, they now have Filters to help you extract any data specific from the report. For example, you can create and apply filter conditions to the BOM such that it will only extract a specific Manufacturer as a return value on the report. This can be extremely time saving in larger projects to get specific information for business processes.
Changes to the dialog boxes for properties
The dialog boxes typically show a better layout and have become more standardized across all other interfaces in the application. Now you can access or make changes to revision, locations and function as it displays the (…) which is common to launching other property managers. Development has ensured that property changes for individual line items of the dialog boxes can be conducted from the right side of each item by adding the list options, separating the Associate button, – +, and (…) for launching task managers. All property boxes for the following listed items have been updated with such relevant changes:
- Locations and Functions
- Symbols & Components
Terminal Strip Editor- Go To button
Users can directly go to the drawing/schematic once they select the terminal from the listed editor view and Click on “Go to” button. This addition makes it easy and fast to correlate terminal changes being made from this interface to the actual schematic layout of the design.
Project Configuration- New tab
Each project can now have predefined configurations for some symbol types. Wire labels, Equi-potential labels, Cable label and Location label symbols can be managed from here. This gives admin users more control at the start for making project decisions that can be used for defining templates and other internal standards.
