SOLIDWORKS Electrical Connected Design

If the mechanical design is the bones of your product, the electrical system is the blood supply. Without a well-designed, validated and optimised electrical system, no mechatronic product would ever leave the factory

Electrical Packages

SOLIDWORKS Electrical allows design professionals to swiftly outline the electrical connections within intricate electrical systems using the user-friendly design tools provided by SOLIDWORKS Electrical. By making use of intelligent single line or conventional multi-line schematics, along with an extensive collection of electrical schematic symbols and components, it becomes possible to create embedded electrical system designs in a collaborative, real-time, multi-user setting. This environment seamlessly brings mechanical and electrical engineering together.
