    Skeptical Client Becomes SOLIDWORKS Electrical Convert

    July 25, 2017

    Every once in a while we run into a client that is hesitant to make the investment in a SOLIDWORKS software solution. Even when their design method includes drafting by hand, they have become very accustomed to what has always worked for the company — and are reluctant to change. In this client story, the reduced design time alone was enough to justify implementing SOLIDWORKS Electrical.

    New Guide Series: Navigating SOLIDWORKS PCB

    April 11, 2017

    Just last year at SOLIDWORKS World 2016 in Dallas, Texas, SOLIDWORKS PCB (Printed Circuit Board) was added to SOLIDWORKS' product portfolio. It's a huge game changer for mechanical and electronic design teams, integrating Altium's best-in-class PCB technology with SOLIDWORKS CAD capabilities. To help users navigate the new software, we put together a SOLIDWORKS PCB guide series, covering everything from version control to the ECO process and even design for manufacturing.

    4 Tools Enabling Bidirectional ECAD/MCAD Design Collaboration

    December 8, 2016

    Companies are growing at a rapid rate, and so are the demands for collaboration between departments. In the past, printed circuit board (PCB) designs were exported in various formats to be shared with the mechanical design engineer. Bidirectional communication was non-existent, slow and frustrating.

    Creating terminal strip documentation is an error-prone and tedious process. Creating terminal strip drawings, cabinet layout and industry standard charts that illustrate how the terminal strip is assembled and how the wiring is to be connected must be done to fully document a control panel. Luckily, SOLIDWORKS Electrical has helpful tools that cut this process down from hours to minutes while reducing error.
