SOLIDWORKS Electrical Schematics

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.

SOLIDWORKS Electrical Schematics can help you.

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.

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.
