Are you always looking for ways to speed up your processes and create better designs faster? Are you finding that your 2D solution is no longer providing you with the same productivity? Zeta Group LLC felt the same way and found success by switching over to SOLIDWORKS Solutions. Let’s take a look at their story.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock (or maybe in your parent’s basement), you can’t help but notice the incredible boom within the North American craft brewing industry. I was curious so I performed a simple search using www.brewerymap.com, and found that there are 249 breweries within 100 miles of our SOLIDWORKS headquarters in Waltham, Massachusetts. That’s amazing!
An important blog if you use SOLIDWORKS Electrical OK, so the header is a bit drastic but this is very important to all users of SOLIDWORKS Electrical. Let me explain a little about how the software functions.
At SOLIDWORKS, not only do we focus on creating great products, but we invest significant time understanding and nurturing engineering and product ecosystems. SOLIDWORKS ecosystems take the complex interactions between several disciplines such as design (MCAD and ECAD), manufacturing, service, quality, supply chain, marketing, inventory, and end customers into account to deliver best-in-class and easy-to-use process solutions impacting business outcomes for our end customers. We build ecosystems
Last year, I wrote about all the new enhancements that came with SOLIDWORKS Electrical 2016, and with the recent release of SW2017, SOLIDWORKS delivered for Electrical again. I wanted to use this blog to bring attention to my favorite updates to Electrical for 2017, but to also note that In 2017, the Electrical Ecosystem saw an addition of a new product in SW PCB, as well as a focus in improving the functionality, interface, and reporting. One customer request that made it into Electrical 2017
The process of creating a large quantity of wire styles can be simplified through the use of Microsoft Excel. SOLIDWORKS Electrical can interface directly with Excel to allow for much faster wire style generation. The following is an outline of this process.
Every year SOLIDWORKS makes enhancements to the software, much of it based on user feedback. They publish a “What’s New” document so that you can browse through and read about the hundreds of improvements that they made. There are improvements that get made that don’t make it into the document, however. I don’t know if they forget (after making hundreds of changes I’d forget some too) or if they consider them too minor.
Unsere neueste Webcast-Aufzeichnung widmet sich der SOLIDWORKS Electrical 2017 Automation Suite”. Gemäß dem sportlichen Motto „Schneller, Höher, Weiter“ stellt sich schnell die Frage, wie immer wiederkehrende Aufgaben und Arbeitsabläufe im Bereich der Elektrokonstruktion automatisiert und fehlerfrei abgewickelt werden können, um Ihre Produktivität zu verbessern. Dazu gehören sicherlich die automatisierte Erstellung von Stromlaufplänen per Knopfdruck gemäß einem Regelwerk, die
Global research has shown that many electrical designers and engineers are using old technology to draw their projects. In many cases, common systems used in design today have their origins in the 1980s or early 90s. If you are using any of these tools to draw your electrical control systems for machines and panels:
Auch in diesem Jahr werden die SOLIDWORKS Lösungen auf der SPS IPC Drives in Nürnberg präsentiert – im Fokus: das neue SOLIDWORKS PCB und SOLIDWORKS Electrical. Besuchen Sie uns vom 22. – 24. November 2016 in Halle 6, Stand 108, informieren Sie sich über SOLIDWORKS PCB und die SOLIDWORKS Electrical Produktreihe und sehen Sie sich die Live-Vorstellungen an.
SOLIDWORKS Electrical und MS-Excel als unschlagbares Duo für Ihre Produktivität Am Freitag, dem 4. November 2016 findet um 13:30 Uhr ein deutschprachiges Webseminar mit dem Titel “SOLIDWORKS Electrical 2017 Automation Suite‘” statt.
If your designs include printed circuit boards (PCBs), there is a pretty good chance that at one point or another you have wished you could have an accurate 3D representation of the finished board for fitting or design checks. Well you might not be aware that SOLIDWORKS has the tool to help you out here, CircuitWorks. Formerly, CircuitWorks used to be included in only the highest level of SOLIDWORKS, Premium. However, last year with the release of SOLIDWORKS 2015 a packaging change meant that
A lot of people want to know if they can use SOLIDWORKS PDM to manage revisions in SOLIDWORKS Electrical. There are a couple ways that you can manage your electrical data in PDM. The most common methods are to check-in the project archives when complete or to check-in the output PDFs when complete. However, today I’d like to focus on the built-in revision control inside of SOLIDWORKS Electrical.
Nutzen Sie die leistungsstärksten Werkzeuge für die Entwicklung großartiger Produkte Seien Sie stolz auf Ihre Konstruktionen – jetzt ist die beste Zeit Ihre Konstruktionswerkzeuge auf das nächste Level zu bringen.
Am Freitag, dem 23. September 2016 findet um 13:30 Uhr ein deutschprachiges Webseminar mit dem Titel “SOLIDWORKS Electrical 2017 – ‘Innovations-Portfolio‘” statt. Präsentiert wird der Webcast von Klaus-Peter Linau (SOLIDWORKS).
Written by: Cheri Guntzviller, Electrical Application Specialist, DASI Solutions Have you tried the using the SOLIDWORKS Schematic automatically-generated PLC drawings in your project? These symbols for the PLC are automatically generated with a template.
Currently, many electrical and mechanical design engineers work separately, using two different sets of tools, which often short-circuits productivity by adding errors and miscommunication.Sharing designs between departments can be sporadic and inconsistent with little collaboration. SOLIDWORKS Electrical is a highly efficient way to create a unified bridge between departments. The easy-to-use, department-specific tools simplify the electrical design process.
By: Evan Stanek, Electrical Applications Engineer As a child of the ’80s, I remember the first time I saw MacGyver get out of a jam using the most elementary of tools found in his surroundings (diffusing a bomb with a paperclip, please!). I’m sure his adventures inspired many careers in creative problem solving for profit (e.g., engineering).
Need to import a Bill of Materials (BOM) Excel file from an outside manufacturer into SOLIDWORKS Electrical? In this video, we focus on properly importing an Excel BOM file into the SOLIDWORKS Electrical library to ensure you have a well-organized and efficient workflow. Join CADD Edge Application Engineer, Tim Pulaski, as he quickly gets you up to speed so you can hit the ground running with your project designs.
Sharing designs between departments can be a hassle that can result in a number of issues on which no one has time to fix or the money to lose. In the case of ProVantage Automation, it needed a system to do what companies dread most: find a collaborative bridge between electrical and mechanical designs. Since its start in 2012, manufacturers across North America have relied on ProVantage Automation to design, produce, test, install, and support their automated manufacturing systems.
One of the most common questions I get when people first see SOLIDWORKS Electrical is about creating wire harnesses. Most of the examples show electrical cabinets and DIN rail mounted components so it may not be obvious how to get started with something like a harness in a vehicle or aircraft. Luckily, SOLIDWORKS has you covered with several workflows and options for creating and documenting your harness designs.
