elecworks for SolidWorks. Electrical tools

elecworks is the 1st NextGen tool. Electrical design with mechanical integration: elecworks™ & SolidWorks

elecworks™ for SolidWorks (EW4SW) is a tool for everyone from engineers to panel builders. Through the use of cutting edge technology elecworks™ lets you realize 3D assemblies and/or cabinets, with real time data sharing and consistency checking between elecworks and SolidWorks.

Intelligent 3D Machine components can be quickly and easily placed, reducing design times, real time updates resolve errors before they can occur as changes carried out in elecworks are automatically realized in SolidWorks & vice versa. Additionally an in built messenger allows interdepartmental design collaboration.

elecworks™ for SolidWorks versions provide all the time saving tools that will allow you to realize your machine/cabinet etc. in SolidWorks; its 3D Routing & cabling module lets you take your design a step further with automatic point to point component cabling, cable segregation, raceway fill factor calculation, cable length calculations...

elecworks. Software for design of automation projects

Elecworks™ is a powerful new generation software tool, that enables electrical designers and automation experts to create automation and electrical installation projects. Through Windows standard interfaces, engineers can produce better installation designs and supporting documentation faster.

For any SolidWorks user from the engineering consultancies to panel builders, elecworks™ allows data sharing between 3D models and the automation directly from the SolidWorks menu.

Elecworks™ enables users to design automation and electrical installation projects from 2D schematics up to 3D design. It has been specifically designed for engineers who want to integrate electrical schematic in their existing SolidWorks platform as an easy to use add-on.

3D Routing & cabling module, (requires SolidWorks Routed Systems), enables cabinet and/or machine 3D wiring, with optimization and wire length calculation.

All elecworks™ modules for SolidWorks, interface between programs real time with shared elecworks™ data. There is also instant messaging to facilitate a uniquely smooth collaborative process between different project participants.

Elecworks™ achieves SolidWorks Certified Gold Product status by DS SolidWorks Corporation. elecworks™ is the first Gold Partner Application for electrical CAD.

Elecworks™ is available in English, French, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Chinese and in the near future, German and Japanese.
