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.

Benefits of SOLIDWORKS Electrical Design

Improve Time to Market

Coordinating electrical and mechanical functions enables teams to work in parallel to save time. Specific time-saving benefits include combining mechanical and electrical BOMs to streamline production planning and faster planning of cable/wire/harness paths using the 3D model.

Reduce Manufacturing Defects

With items selected during schematic creation added to the 3D model, you can ensure fit, check for collision/clash, calculate lengths, plan for efficient material usage, and reduce scrap.
Documentation is better and more consistent throughout development, reducing mistakes.

Eliminate Hidden Costs

Prevent mistakes and extra costs with your 3D model and schematic linked bi-directionally in real time, as well as a combined BOM for electrical and  mechanical.


Including electrical information from the schematic in the 3D model enables detailed planning,  documentation, and visualization of overall product design, helping to ensure consistent assembly from unit to unit.

Streamline Development

Faster design, better communication between departments, synchronized plans, up-to-date
documentation, and shorter time-to-market all add up to reduced costs throughout the
product lifecycle.
