Integrate your Electrical Schematic Designs into your SOLIDWORKS 3D Product Model

Sync real-time, bi-directional updates with SOLIDWORKS Electrical 3D

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.

Key Features of SOLIDWORKS Electrical 3D Include

Electrical 3D

CAD-embedded interface bidirectionally integrates electrical schematic design data from SOLIDWORKS Electrical with the SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD model

Harness Development

Create schematic-driven harness designs in the 3D model, utilizing real-time bidirectional functionality coupled with powerful routing, flattening, and automatic documentation capabilities.

Links to PDM Professional Software

Integration with SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional to manage documents, generate reports, and create PDF and DWG exports (SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional sold separately)

Autorouting Technology

Advanced SOLIDWORKS routing technology with advanced diagnostics provides highly simplified autorouting of wires, cables, and harnesses from within a 3D CAD model. The routing detail information is available instantly to all project users.

Real-Time Synchronization

Project design data is synchronized in real time, bidirectionally between schematics and the 3D model. This allows key information, such as BOM and design data, to be unified between design disciplines and users.


SOLIDWORKS Electrical enables multiple users to work on the same project simultaneously.

Electrical 3D Cabinet Design

SOLIDWORKS Electrical combines SOLIDWORKS CAD and Electrical technologies, to provide a cohesive environment for electrical 3D cabinet design that is synchronized in real time without the use of external files and can utilize existing CAD data. Using industry-proven SOLIDWORKS automation tools, SOLIDWORKS Electrical provides extensive capability and usability for all aspects of electrical 3D cabinet design and documentation.
