Many types of software can draft a schematic, but very few can actually automate the process and produce things like bills of material, wire run lists, net lists and other necessary documentation for manufacturing. SOLIDWORKS Electrical Schematic is one of the few - with its ability to automatically capture properties as you design to later be accessed and collated to produce those usually time consuming associated documents.

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.

In this blog series, we highlight stories shared with us by TriMech clients about how we have helped to improve their business with our software and hardware solutions, training, and engineering services.
Which language do you speak—Electrical or Mechanical? Both engineering disciplines have unique jargon that can easily be misinterpreted in translation. Why?

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.
SOLIDWORKS PCB provides electronic designers with a comprehensive PCB design solution. The integrated schematic and board layout environment allows users to develop their circuit boards efficiently in one tool.
Recently, I attended a week of training on SOLIDWORKS' newest product, SOLIDWORKS PCB. This new PCB design software was developed in a collaborative effort between Altium and SOLIDWORKS to bridge the gap between the ECAD and MCAD tools.
