Electrical 3D

Seamlessly bring schematic designs into 3D models. Designers can place 3D versions of all electrical parts into their model, and run wires/cables/harnesses in 3D to connect all electrical equipment. 

SOLIDWORKS Electrical 3D

SOLIDWORKS Electrical 3D

Easily plan specific locations and paths, and accurately determine wires/cables/harness lengths before equipment is built to ensure consistent manufacturing and reduce scrap.

Your 2D schematics and 3D models are synchronized bi-directionally in real time, so any changes are automatically updated.

Please note: SOLIDWORKS Electrical 3D requires SOLIDWORKS CAD software.


  • Bi-Directional Updates

    Real-time bi-directional updates between 2D and 3D synchronize electromechanical design and keeps everything coordinated throughout development.

  • Integration

    Integration of the 2D schematic with the 3D model helps standardize designs and unify BOMs to reduce mistakes and delays.

  • Consistent Product Manufacturing

    Placement of the electrical system and cables/wires in 3D model enables planning of specific locations and paths for consistent product manufacturing.

  • Collaborative Electrical-Mechanical Development

    Multiple electrical and mechanical engineers can work on the same project simultaneously using SOLIDWORKS Electrical. 

  • Electrical 3D Cabinet Design

    Synchronize changes in real time. Combining SOLIDWORKS CAD and Electrical technologies, gain a design environment enhanced for electrical 3D cabinet design.

  • Electrical Component and Symbol Library

    Easily locate approved components in an extensive library of industry-standard schematic symbols and a database of manufacturer parts.

  • Electrical Design in 3D CAD

    Integrate electrical schematic design data into a CAD model. Easy-to-use, CAD-embedded, electrical system design.

  • Electrical Harness Design Planning

    Create a virtual “design in-place” electrical harness development environment. Auto-route a schematically defined electrical harness in the SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD model.

  • Mechatronic Design

    Powerful, easy-to-use solution to integrate electronics into electro-mechanical designs. Readily implement schematically defined electrical systems into the model.

  • Schematic Annotation and Documentation

    Powerful annotation, documentation, and reporting that incorporates the ease of DraftSight®, seamlessly integrated into this collaborative design environment.
