Want to learn the essentials of SOLIDWORKS Electrical Schematic and SOLIDWORKS Electrical 3D or just sharp up your skills? Then this course is perfect for you.

SOLIDWORKS Electrical is a software application used for designing and documenting electrical schematics, wiring diagrams, and other electrical engineering projects. This introductory course aims to provide a comprehensive understanding of SOLIDWORKS Electrical, covering various topics.

The course begins with an introduction to SOLIDWORKS Electrical. Students will gain an understanding of the software, its capabilities, user interface, and configuration settings. The course will cover the basics of electrical design, including components, symbols, and data management. Students will learn how to create and edit electrical components and circuits, connect components, and add annotations.

Another key topic covered in the course is Schematic Design. Students will learn how to create and edit schematic diagrams using SOLIDWORKS Electrical. The course will cover topics such as understanding symbols and annotations, inserting components and circuits, and generating reports.

The course also covers Customization of SOLIDWORKS Electrical to suit specific project requirements. Students will learn how to create custom components and symbols and manage project data.

Collaboration and communication tools within SOLIDWORKS Electrical are also covered in the course. You will learn about project management tools, version control, and collaboration with other users.

In addition to the above topics, the course may also cover integration with other software tools, advanced electrical design techniques, and troubleshooting.
