Previously, we discussed about electrical schematics module or known as electrical 2D. Mostly the module is for electrical engineer to design their electrical system in schematics diagram.
When come to the whole production line, it is very important for the technician or other mechanical to understand the schematics diagram to do assembly for their products. Due to lack of knowledge on electrical background, it might take longer time to understand the detail of the diagram without the help of the electrical engineer. In the same time, the technical term in electrical and mechanical engineer slightly different, that always caused big misunderstanding in communication between electrical and mechanical engineer.
SOLIDWORKS Electrical 3d can be found in SOLIDWORKS assembly.
That is why, electrical 3D is up to this job. Electrical 3D mostly involved in assembly mode, for assembly purposes. Electrical 3D able to synchronize the schematics into the assembly mode, any updates on the schematics will update the modelling In SOLIDWORKS assembly.
Reason behind this module is developed, to avoid communication error between engineers in the production. Instead of asking electrical engineer to guide the installation part by part, the technician can easily review the assemble model in SOLIDWORKS, to complete the assembly process without dependent on electrical engineer.
Auto-route wire in SOLIDWORKS Electrical will automatically connect the wire with the component according to the schematics diagram.
The colour of the wire is set according to the wire from the schematics diagram, providing a more user friendly style to assist the technician to assemble the electrical panel.
When comes to electrical engineer, the engineers or technician, will be more rely on assembly features on SOLIDWORKS, such as mate reference in the template model, to fit automatically in the whole assembly. Engineers may need practicing on create customs model if the desire components template is not been found in the design library.
Components from the design library, consist of the connector that allow the wires to connect each other.
You even allowed to connect wire between components without the sheet metal box or panel casing.
These are the features we can enjoy it in SOLIDWORKS Electrical. Benefits of using SOLIDWORKS Electrical, not only save our production time, it also eliminates hidden cost in the production line. Instead of outsource your schematics drawing to third party or supplier for assembly, user can always finish up the whole design or production by using SOLIDWORKS Electrical.
By using SOLIDWORKS Electrical 3d, it solved the communication error between the engineers and technician; highly reduce the wastage or defects during the production process. In the same time, it also speeds up the production process, which also reduce the time to market schedule, where your products are ready to be distribute to the reseller.
If the SOLIDWORKS Electrical 3d is not applicable in your job industry, you can always go for SOLIDWORKS Electrical 2d professional, by looking thru the features, you know you need SOLIDWORKS Electrical for your schematics design more than other software.
