Article by Delvin Masilamani updated February 12, 2018


In SOLIDWORKS Electrical 2018, there are 3 productive changes made with regards to managing wires.

Global Wire Mark Display:

We can now pre-define the connection label display style directly from the configuration. The options will vary depending on the numbering style selected between Equipotential or Wires.
