Become familiar with the SOLIDWORKS Electrical product and its user interface. Understand the main elements of SOLIDWORKS Electrical. Get to know the user interface and learn how to customize it. Learn about user rights management. Create an environment archive to backup or share data.
Learn how to define cables, create reusable macros, indicate the continuity of wires across multiple drawings, and depict custom components as simple black boxes. Define the cables to be used within a project and assign cable cores to specific component pins. Create macros for reusing specific parts of circuits or entire drawings. Depict the continuation of wires and equipotentials across drawings. Create black boxes for showing custom components with logical connectivity.
Learn how to draw wires to connect symbols and make changes on-the-fly to meet connection requirements. Draw single or multiple wires and modify them as needed. Use the Properties panel to instantaneously view and edit information. Use the Wire Style Manager to define and customize the wires for a project. Number newly drawn wires or selectively renumber existing wires.
Learn how to add components and symbols to your schematics and associate them with manufacturer parts. Add individual components manually and import them all at once from a spreadsheet. Insert component symbols and associate manufacturer parts. Use the options available in the Symbol Insertion panel and the Symbol Selector for classification and filtering.
Learn how to create different types of drawings and use their configuration settings to control various aspects. Create a new drawing and use Project Configuration to define its title block and mark. Create 2D cabinet layouts and place components. Generate drawings automatically based on inputs defined in their configuration managers.
Learn about various drawing types that you can create in SOLIDWORKS Electrical. Understand how Wiring Line Diagrams can be used to create high-level synoptic drawings. Use Scheme drawings to create detailed designs using electrical symbols, components and wires. Create Mixed Scheme drawings to combine high-level and detailed schematic information on one page.
Understand how to create and use SOLIDWORKS Electrical projects. Use project templates to create new projects. Modify project settings based on country or industry standards. Understand the use of configuration files for managing user-defined preferences. Create archives and snapshots to backup and share data.
