SOLIDWORKS PCB Design and beyond for Industry 4.0

Article by Joseph Lyon created/updated June 28, 2018

If you have used SOLIDWORKS PCB, you already know of the vast array of mechanical design tools and collaboration available from SOLIDWORKS 3D, but where do we go from there? We have ensured form, fit and function of our board to it’s mechanical enclosure, but what’s next? The answer is simple, anything we want! With access to the entire SOLIDWORKS ecosystem we can leverage our mechanically intelligent PCB design with any SOLIDWORKS product.

SOLIDWORKS Electrical

Route wires, cables and harnesses from your circuit board to and from existing mechanical designs. Obtain precise wire and cable lengths and create a more realistic design at the same time with SOLIDWORKS Electrical.
