Real-time integration of Electrical Schematic and 3D CAD. Intelligent and Automated Electrical Design.



SOLIDWORKS Electrical helps simplify electrical schematic creation with an intuitive interface for faster design of embedded electrical systems. Integration in real time with SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD helps make both electrical and mechanical engineers more productive, and improves collaboration for fewer product delays, more consistent and standardized designs, lower costs, and faster time-to-market. You can create schematic-driven harness designs with powerful routing, flattening, and automated documentation.

SOLIDWORKS Electrical leverages the power of database driven automation to marry traditional 2D diagrams with the 3D visualization, product development, and manufacturing advantages of your SOLIDWORKS 3D models. Electrical designers will truly appreciate the efficiency with included features such as: wire drawing tools that split/heal/merge/trim automatically, automatic labeling of terminals on symbols, used/unused circuits identified in a cross-reference table; a single-button action to completely draw and document a terminal strip, complete with wiring details; automatic numbering and naming of wires, and components customizable to any company’s internal standards.

Every license of SOLIDWORKS Electrical ships with a ready-to-use integration to SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional which eliminates a significant cause of inconsistencies between electrical and mechanical designs and helps companies develop products faster.


  • Modernize your electrical system design
  • Increase collaboration and synchronization between electrical and mechanical design
  • Create schematic-driven harness designs with powerful routing, flattening, and automated documentation


  1. Reduce Manufacturing Defects and Scrap
  2. Save time when combining mechanical and electrical BOMs to streamline production planning
  3. Faster planning of cable/wire/harness paths using the 3D model

SOLIDWORKS Electrical packages provide a range of electrical schematic and 3D design capabilities:

SOLIDWORKS Electrical Schematic
A powerful, easy-to-use suite of collaborative, schematic design tools that help drive the rapid development of embedded electrical systems for equipment and other products. Built-in libraries of symbols, manufacturer part information, and 3D component models provide common, reusable materials that help optimize design reuse. Automated design and management tools help streamline and simplify an array of tedious design tasks, from PLC and terminal block to contact cross reference assignments.

SOLIDWORKS Electrical 3D
Integrate electrical schematic design data with SOLIDWORKS 3D bidirectionally and in real time. SOLIDWORKS Electrical 3D enables you to place electrical components and use advanced SOLIDWORKS routing technology to automatically interconnect electrical design elements within the 3D model. Determine optimal lengths for wires, cables, and harnesses, all while maintaining design and BOM synchronization between electrical and mechanical designs.

SOLIDWORKS Electrical Professional
Combine the electrical schematic functionality of SOLIDWORKS Electrical Schematic with the 3D modeling capabilities of SOLIDWORKS Electrical 3D in one powerful, easy-to-use package. SOLIDWORKS Electrical Professional is ideally suited for the user that supports both electrical and mechanical design integration with 3D models.

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.
