    SOLIDWORKS Electrical 3D vs Routing

    March 2, 2022

    In this article, I will address a very common question I get when working with clients involved in electrical design: What’s the big difference between SOLIDWORKS Routing and SOLIDWORKS Electrical 3D?

    On paper and in video demonstrations, they both seem to do the same thing: allow you to route wires and cables more easily through your SOLIDWORKS assemblies. If you have ever experienced the unbridled joy of trying to create a wire using a 3D spline sweep in a SOLIDWORKS assembly, both may be enticing propositions. In addition to understanding their academic differences, perhaps the better question is: Which solution is the better fit for my business? I’ll try to answer both.

    3DEXPERIENCE World 2022 Recap

    February 23, 2022

    That's a wrap! 3DEXPERIENCE World was originally planned as a hybrid event with both in-person and virtual sessions streaming live from Atlanta, GA. There are many reasons why people can’t attend in-person such as travel restrictions, not meeting the venue requirements or limited funds for the trip. A hybrid event gives attendees the flexibility to design an event experience that suits their individual needs. As I mentioned, that was the original plan. Unfortunately, with rising concerns of COVID, the in-person portion of the event was cancelled. This disappointed a lot of people including myself. I was looking forward to the normal in-person experience at 3DEXPERIENCE World.
