SOLIDWORKS Electrical Portal (ECP)

Written by: Paul Bremer, Application Engineer

SOLIDWORKS Electrical Portal (ECP)

SOLIDWORKS Electrical 2016 has a lot of new features and as of 2015 there were electrical parts made by worldwide manufactures and that information was passed on to SOLIDWORKS customers in a folder.  Well in 2016 that folder no longer comes with your subscription and in typical SOLIDWORKS fashion they have attempted to make it better.  SOLIDWORKS has created Electrical Customer Portal (ECP).  It is here, up to date information is kept on the world’s electrical parts manufacturers.  This information is called Metadata.

New Functions in SOLIDWORKS Electrical 2016

One of the new features in SOLIDWORKS Electrical 2016 is the ease in ability to access the formula manager and modify or add new formulas.  Not only is this function easier to use but it also has a “TEST” formula feature to make sure your new formula provides the correct information.

SOLIDWORKS Electrical Black Box

Written by: Paul Bremer, Application Engineer

SOLIDWORKS Electrical Black Box

Sometimes the name can through you off track esspecially with a name like "Black Box".  No I am not talking about the one found in a plane after the crash.  I am talking about the symbol used within SOLIDWORKS Electrical 2016. Simply stated a "black Box" is a generic schematic symbol used which has a number of inputs and outputs and what happens inside the box doesn matter at this point.  This sysmbol can be used on the fly and can later be assoicated to a manufacturer or a specific part like a moter drive.  In SOLIDWORKS Electrical 2016 the "black Box" function is extremely easy to use as you will see.  It can also be manipulate just as easy to fit what ever needs you may have or want.  So lets take a look.

Creating Custom Rails and Ducts in SOLIDWORKS Electrical

Written by: Neil Lantto, Application Engineer

Creating Custom Rails and Ducts in SOLIDWORKS Electrical

We do not have only one size of rail or duct, so when we use the default rail/duct in SOLIDWORKS Electrical, it doesn’t always match what we’re looking for. However Change Length of “Rail” or “Duct” is a very useful tool, that doesn’t seem to exactly cooperate with any rail/duct shaped part file. Additionally Insert as horizontal/vertical rail/duct is a useful feature in SOLIDWORKS Electrical that saves us an extra mate to be added in.

SOLIDWORKS Electrical for Hydraulic Schematics

Written by: Tim Newton, Senior Elite Application Engineer

SOLIDWORKS Electrical for Hydraulic Schematics

Take a look at how hydraulic schematics can be done easily in SOLIDWORKS Electrical. In this video, you will see a hydraulic schematic created, how symbols can be imported from many outside sources, and finally how when you’re done with the schematic you’ll automatically get a BOM.

Hold On. Don't Click There, Click Here In SOLIDWORKS Electrical

There is this thing we all do in a rush, click quickly and with little to no regard. Some of us will be click happy even when we’re not under the gun. If you’re like me, you’ve found that hurrying attitude will sometimes make you pay with extra time spent. So here I am attempting to aid my frantic friends.

Importing External Data into SOLIDWORKS Electrical

Written by: Bee Xiong, Application Engineer

Importing External Data into SOLIDWORKS Electrical

SOLIDWORKS Electrical has a very exciting tool that will import your schematic drawings and title blocks into SOLIDWORKS Electrical and applies all the benefits and intelligences the software has to offer. SOLIDWORKS Electrical can also use the intelligences you had already enbedded in your schematics, symbols and title blocks and carry them over to SOLIDWORKS Electrical to speed up your design. In a couple of clicks you can bring your entire project into SOLIDWORKS Electrical and start associating it to your 3D SOLIDWORKS Electrical Components.
