End the Disconnect between your Mechanical and Electrical Design

Article by Rod Mackay updated March 21, 2016


The productivity gains related to using 3D CAD technology for mechanical design are now obtainable for electrical design through integration of electrical and mechanical development on a single 3D platform.

Instead of relying on slow, non-integrated 2D tools to develop electrical schematics, control panel designs, and electrical system layouts, or manual techniques for routing wires, cables, and harnesses. Manufacturers can take advantage of SOLIDWORKS® Electrical 3D technology to fully integrate the electromechanical aspects of machine and product design. Resulting in time and cost savings, as well as quality improvements.

Electrical Design

Whether you need to create schematics, design electrical systems, select electrical components, automate wire and cable routing and harness design, or simply share electromechanical design data — the following white paper will help you understand how integrating electrical and mechanical design with SOLIDWORKS Electrical software solutions, and will enable you to achieve your product development goals.

Why choose SOLIDWORKS Electrical design software?

SOLIDWORKS® Electrical software provides you with a single 3D development environment that integrates your 3D mechanical and electrical design so you can save time and money, increase innovation and improve product quality.

By adding SOLIDWORKS Electrical into your design process, you can:

  • Create electrical schematics
  • Design electrical systems
  • Schematically drive your mechanical model
  • Automate wire and cable routing and harness design
  • Share electrical and mechanical design data
