    Building Your Electrical Parts Library: Classifications

    June 17, 2020

    SOLIDWORKS Electrical uses libraries to keep data in a centralized area for access during the design process. It will assist with keeping data organized and aids designers when searching for a specific piece of data. One of the great things about this software is that SOLIDWORKS has a database of over half a million manufacturing parts for you to use when designing so you can shrink development time by reusing many common circuits and symbols without having to add them from scratch each time. In part one of this new series, we go over how to set up your libraries and classifications to hold all this data.
