SolidWorks Electrical 3D
A comprehensive Electrical design solution
SolidWorks Electrical solutions are integral parts of the SolidWorks design and simulation portfolio that help Design Engineers reduce the risk inherent in innovation and get their products to market faster with less physical prototyping to decrease costs.
With a consistent, powerful, intuitive set of electrical design capabilities, all fully integrated with the SolidWorks solution portfolio, designers can establish an integrated design early in the design process and avoid costly design rework.
SolidWorks Electrical Solutions capabilities
Listed below, are some of the powerful features that SolidWorks Electrical Solutions users benefit from. With the addition of standard part libraries, utilities that will search for design errors, fasteners and tools that will automatically estimate your manufacturing costs, the capabilities are endless.

SolidWorks PCB is focused on bringing the best of both worlds together. Do what you do best in SolidWorks CAD, and let SolidWorks PCB handle all of your PCB design needs which was engineered specifically for SolidWorks® collaboration. We’ve combined the best technology in PCB design with an easy-to-use interface and linked it with SolidWorks CAD to give you an efficient design experience that gets your PCBs done quickly and easily — just what you need when PCBs are only a part of your product design workflow.
SolidWorks Electrical Schematic Standard
SolidWorks Electrical schematic design capabilities simplify development of embedded electrical systems for machines and other applications, with single-line and multi-line schematic tools for planning your electrical systems. An integrated library database provides thousands of symbols and more than 500,000 manufactured parts for use in your design, and you can speed up development by copying and reusing common circuit segments within a project or to other projects. Teams can work concurrently to reduce development time, and automated management tools streamline design of complex PLC connections. You can easily generate drawings, wire lists, “From-To” lists, and other documentation for manufacturing. Use your SolidWorks Electrical schematics in SolidWorks Electrical 3D, with bi-directional linking that captures design changes in both the schematic and the 3D model in real time.
SolidWorks Electrical Schematic Professional
The SolidWorks Electrical Professional package combines the electrical schematic design capabilities of SolidWorks Electrical with the 3D capabilities of SolidWorks Electrical 3D in one convenient package. Single-line and multi-line schematic tools, including an integrated library of thousands of symbols and parts, enable quick planning of your embedded electrical system. Design teams can work concurrently on one or more projects and keep all work current with real-time bi-directional updates. You can integrate SolidWorks Electrical schematics with the 3D model and then place 3D versions of all electrical parts into the model, creating paths and connections with wires/cables/harnesses. All work in 2D and 3D is synchronized in real time, and you can create fully integrated BOMs that include both mechanical and electrical parts.
SolidWorks Electrical 3D
SolidWorks Electrical 3D enables you to easily integrate your electrical schematic design from SolidWorks Electrical to your 3D model of the machine or other product. (SolidWorks Electrical 3D requires SolidWorks CAD software.) Designers can place 3D versions of all electrical parts into their model, and run wires/cables/harnesses in 3D to connect all electrical equipment. This enables you to plan specific locations and paths, and accurately determine wires/cables/harness lengths before equipment is built to ensure consistent manufacturing and to reduce scrap and costs. Your 2D schematics and 3D models are synchronized bi-directionally in real time, so any changes are automatically updated.
Share data between electrical CAD (ECAD) and mechanical CAD (MCAD) designers using the CircuitWorks™ tool in SolidWorks 3D CAD software. Circuitworks™ enables users to share, compare, update, and track electrical design data so users can more quickly resolve electrical-mechanical integration problems.
