Mark Wires With Connected Devices Data There are a lot of great new enhancements to SOLIDWORKS Electrical 2017, but for me one stands out as a must have. It’s common practice for Electrical Designers to number wires using the terminal identifier of the device that the wire is connected to. Using this practice, it’s easy […]
We’ve said it before, SOLIDWORKS Electrical has some really powerful customization tools. We did a SOLIDWORKS Electrical blog on customizing ROW and COLUMN numbering for electrical schematics. It dealt with setting up a tile block by placing ROW and COLUMN numbers at the desired positions on a title block. We also used customized numbering formulas […]
As we all know, terminal strips are used everywhere in wired electrical systems. In fact they may be one of the most commonly implemented devices. It can be tedious to draw and document a terminal strip for assembly purposes. Commonly used tools for documenting terminal numbers, connected devices, wires, wire numbers, bridges and connection points […]
Managed design content libraries are one of the real strengths of SOLIDWORKS Electrical. Libraries can contain virtually any representation of parts that are used in a design including schematic symbols, manufacturer’s parts information, 2D Layout symbols and more. SOLIDWORKS Electrical libraries are loaded with content straight out of the box, but every organization has unique […]
There’s a lot to like about SOLIDWORKS Electrical Schematic and it’s well worth a serious look if you’re interested in a reliable tool for wired electrical system design. Key time saving and accuracy insuring features like a project based approach to design, managed part and symbol libraries, built-in electrical intelligence and automated accurate reporting make […]
One of the best enhancements to SOLIDWORKS Electrical 2016 is the addition of the Project Macro. Users can now save project documents or sets of project documents as a macro to use within other projects. New in SOLIDWORKS Electrical 2016, users can right-click on multiple project documents to create a macro of that project. Creating macros allows […]
With the release of SOLIDWORKS Electrical 2016 user interface enhancements were made to make your work space cleaner and more organized. Being such a property intensive software, SOLIDWORKS Electrical 2016 has updated their property dialogue boxes, moving them to streamline your interface even more.
Row and column numbers in conjunction with a document number provide an easy and effective method to locate specific electrical components, origin and destination points, wires, or any drawing element within a complex , multi-paged electrical document book. Virtually every company that we work with requires a customized system for row and column numbering within […]

SOLIDWORKS Electrical 2016 has a ton of great enhancements that we could talk about, but I wanted to highlight my favorite in this discussion. The Nodal Indicators enhancement was an early Christmas present as far as I am concerned. This is a relatively simple but extremely useful enhancement that helps you visualize the physical wiring […]
