## How to Create Cable Fabrication Drawings with SOLIDWORKS Electrical 3D

In addition to being able to create schematic representations of cable harnesses, SOLIDWORKS Electrical is also able to generate fabrication prints for harnesses in conjunction with SOLIDWORKS Electrical 3D. What this means is you can define connection information in the schematic application as an electrical designer…

## SOLIDWORKS Electrical Wire Cabling Order for Testing and Assembly

In electrical design, how we choose to represent connections between electrical devices in our schematics is often open to interpretation. If we’re not careful, our design intent can be easily miscommunicated to the reader, leading to potentially disastrous results. “The danger is in the details,”…

## SOLIDWORKS Electrical Getting Started Guide

Adjusting to a new design software can be a daunting task even for seasoned electrical designers and engineers. For myself, coming from a mechanical engineering background, even visualizing schematics in a 2D space took some getting used to. What worked for me when first getting…

## Creating my first Electrical Drawing with SOLIDWORKS Electrical

Samony Riyaz is a Programmer here at Javelin Technologies. The article below is an introduction to electrical drawing from her work. My academic career pursuing Automation Engineering Technology had prepared me well for the SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD world, but I could not say the same…

## How to read and understand an Electrical Schematic

Ever wonder what’s behind the walls at home or researched how an electrical device works? Maybe you want to fix something that runs on electricity? At first glance an electrical schematic may come across as a confusing cluster of multicoloured lines and symbols of various…

## Mechanical Engineering Meets SOLIDWORKS Electrical Episode 2 – 2D Drawings

Welcome back readers! Previously on Mechanical Engineering Meets SOLIDWORKS Electrical  I discussed my project to design and build a new home theater. Last time I covered the components I would be using and set them up with information and symbols in my SOLIDWORKS Electrical library….

## What is a SOLIDWORKS Electrical Schematic Component?

A SOLIDWORKS Electrical Schematic Component is a unique device designation/mark. Multiple symbols can make one component. Every component is directly linked to a manufacturer part; e.g. In a case of coil and contacts arrangements, we can keep adding additional auxiliary contacts to this component. This…

## End the Disconnect between your Mechanical and Electrical Design

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,…

## SOLIDWORKS PCB User Interface

As a new and emerging product, one of the first characteristics users will notice is the “face” of SOLIDWORKS PCB. The SOLIDWORKS PCB user interface is familiar and easy to use for any Windows user.  It has a very modern and easy to use design environment, which promotes a smooth…
