SolidWorks Electrical 3D enables you to use your schematic data from SolidWorks Electrical with your overall mechanical design, opening up a new level of productivity. Concurrent design between electrical and mechanical teams can now be a reality—in real time. You can collaborate easily and naturally, optimize the overall product design, and streamline development.Key capabilities include
- Real-time bi-directional updates between 2D and 3D synchronize electromechanical design so everything stays coordinated throughout development
- Integration of the 2D schematic with the 3D model helps standardize designs and unify your BOMs to reduce mistakes and delays
- Placement of the electrical system and cables/wires in your 3D model enables planning of specific locations and paths for consistent product manufacturing
Key business benefits include:
Eliminate Hidden Costs
Prevent mistakes and extra costs with your 3D model and schematic linked bi-directionally
in real time, as well as a combined BOM for electrical and mechanical.
Reduce Manufacturing Defects and Scrap
With items selected during schematic creation added to the 3D model, you can ensure fit, check for collision/clash, calculate lengths, plan for efficient material usage, and reduce scrap. Documentation is better and more consistent throughout development, reducing mistakes.
Coordinating electrical and mechanical functions enables teams to work in parallel to save time. Specific time-saving benefits include combining mechanical and electrical BOMs to streamline production planning and faster planning of cable/wire/harness paths using the 3D model.
Ensure Consistent Manufacturing and Assembly
Including electrical information from the schematic in the 3D model enables detailed planning, documentation, and visualization of overall product design, helping to ensure consistent assembly from unit to unit.
Streamline Development to Reduce Costs
Faster design, better communication between departments, synchronized plans, up-to-date documentation, and shorter time-to-market all add up to reduced costs throughout the product lifecycle.
