What is SOLIDWORKS ELECTRICAL?

SOLIDWORKS Electrical is a systems-level electrical design package that allows you to design electrical schematics quickly and accurately with customizable design tools. Electrical makes creating 2D schematics a quick and painless process. Additionally, create fully associated single line diagrams, terminal strip drawings, cabinet layouts, and more.

Since SOLIDWORKS Electrical is based on an SQL database, it’s easy to generate reports and confidently make design changes. The reports can be Bills of Materials, Wiring Lists, or Design Rule Checks, or they can be fined tuned for specific applications.

SOLIDWORKS Electrical is the only schematic design package that can be linked to the 3D SOLIDWORKS mechanical environment. This capability means you can automatically route and get the lengths of your wires, cables, and harnesses.

What is SOLIDWORKS CAM?

SOLIDWORKS CAM is an integrated CAM solution available to all SOLIDWORKS licenses on subscription, allowing for 2.5 and simple 3-axis toolpath creation for mill machines. Powered by CAMWorks, the original SOLIDWORKS Gold Partner, SOLIDWORKS CAM offers a similar interface that makes learning easy.

With a common platform and a simpler workflow, SOLIDWORKS CAM unites both design and manufacturing teams, resulting in a better CNC experience. This integrated solution also allows for parametric updates to toolpaths and skips timely exports to third-party software. SOLIDWORKS CAM learns as you program, allowing you to reuse programming data on previous parts to make future parts programmable with just a few clicks.

What is Composer?

SOLIDWORKS Composer enables you to easily re-purpose existing 3D design data to rapidly create and update high-quality graphical assets that are fully associated with your 3D design. Create technical documentation in parallel with product development, simplifying their process, and accelerating time-to-market.

What is DraftSight?

DraftSight is a fully capable 2D Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) application. Unlike other tools in the marketplace, DraftSight is a feature-rich design environment that conforms to all engineering scopes (mechanical, electrical, architectural, maker and hobbyist) and at all levels. Capable of handling everything from the most basic 2D drawings to complex building layouts, electrical layouts, and 3D modeling. DraftSight provides everything you need to create, markup, and edit 2D and 3D drawings.

What is SOLIDWORKS Inspection?

SOLIDWORKS Inspection automates the painstaking and often tedious design inspection process. The software enables you to automatically capture inspection dimensions already contained in the models and drawings that are critical to the design’s production. Generate characteristic reports, drawings with ballooned callouts, and workflows quickly and reliably—all delivered in an easy-to-understand format.

What is SOLIDWORKS MBD?

SOLIDWORKS MBD (Model-Based Definition) is an integrated drawing-less manufacturing solution for SOLIDWORKS that helps define, organize, and publish 3D Product Manufacturing Information (PMI) including 3D model data in industry-standard file formats. 

SOLIDWORKS MBD guides the manufacturing process directly in 3D instead of using traditional 2D drawings, which helps streamline production, cut cycle time, reduce errors, and support industry standards.

WHAT IS SOLIDWORKS VISUALIZE?

SOLIDWORKS Visualize is a photo-realistic rendering tool that utilizes your CAD data to create magazine-quality images or commercial-quality animations. Make your images pop with real-time ray tracing, AI Denoiser, and I-Ray technology from Nvidia-powered GPUs or AMD ProRender. Visualize can leverage CUDA core technology from Nvidia or render cores from AMD ProRender to render your images in no time! Need more power? No problem, add additional GPUs to your existing hardware or set up a cluster for everyone to share.
