Embedded Electrical System Design Planning
SolidWorks® Electrical 3D™ technology gives engineers and designers a powerful, easy-to-use planning tool for rapid cooperative design of schematically defined embedded electrical systems that can be readily implemented in the SolidWorks 3D CAD model. Rapid design, in a synchronized cooperative environment between the electrical and mechanical design teams, has never been simpler with the single line schematics capability with a simple-to-use graphical interface and the intelligence of traditional multiline tools.
Embedded Electrical System Design Planning Overview
The integration of the electrical subsystem into a mechanical model can be an arduous, error prone mission where the electrical design intent is not fully articulated. Existing design tools are typically repurposed from a respective industry and adapted to address the design requirement. These repurposed tools are often cumbersome and lack interoperability, resulting in design or material inconsistencies or disassociation.
SolidWorks Electrical 3D creates a new technology paradigm, incorporating easy-to-use, purpose-built design tools for schematically driven embedded electrical subsystem development. SolidWorks Electrical capabilities include:
- Single line schematic— Electrical system planning tool for creating complex embedded electrical system utilizing simple pictorial representations of electrical components and interconnectors
- Multiline schematic— Traditional schematic creation tool with a simplified user interface optimized for simplification of repetitive tasks
- Real-time synchronization— All project design data bidirectionally synchronized in real time between schematics and the 3D model in a multi-user collaborative environment
- Real-time collaboration— Synchronized, bidirectional environment enables multiple users to work on the same project simultaneously in real time for easier project collaboration
