Black Box Feature & Manual Parts – Off Season Additions

Closeup of player's clasped hands

For teams in the off season, the evaluation has to be made: are we ready to win now or are we piling up young talent? In a win-now mode, teams are looking to plug in veteran talent that may only be useful for that year to try to push them over the edge.

Sometimes the team unearths a gem, and that player turns into a long-term solution with a contract extension. In SOLIDWORKS Electrical we can build one-time symbols for use in a project using the black box feature, and if needed make those one-time additions a permanent fixture on your roster…or library.

Watch now to see how the black box feature can be used to your advantage.
