SOLIDWORKS Electrical is an incredibly powerful electrical schematic tool. As you create these schematics, you are adding a lot of information and symbols to your design. This can lead to clutter on your sheets. One way to clean this up, is to work with layers so you can easily hide or show certain items on your sheet. One really great example of this is with cross reference lists. In this week's Video Tech Tip, I demonstrate this technique to help clean up your drawing sheet.

When it comes to designing today, efficiency is everything. Time is one resource we all wish we could have more of, but we can never get. So, we are forced to better use the time we have. For most designers, that’s the main draw to SOLIDWORKS tools —the time savings gained through efficiency. SOLIDWORKS Electrical is full of many features that add up to huge time savings. In this Video Tech Tip, learn all about how to configure your schematic so you can pass the equipotential mark across the symbol on your electrical schematics.

SOLIDWORKS Electrical makes designing complex electrical systems simple and straightforward. SOLIDWORKS Electrical has an intuitive and easy-to-use interface that automates complex tasks such as contact cross-referencing and terminal drawings. It accelerates product development by simultaneously minimizing the repetitive tasks associated with developing electrical schematics.
With SOLIDWORKS PCB, unprecedented levels of collaboration are possible between mechanical CAD and electrical CAD. These two historically separate teams can now work seamlessly on the same models in real time in their own respective software.

If you've ever tried inserting a component into SOLIDWORKS Electrical, let's say a three-pole circuit breaker, then you've noticed that the software automatically assigns a root mark. But what if we wanted that assigned value to be different? In this Video Tech Tip, we take a look at three different ways to change the Default Root Mark.
