Do you want to add watermarks in your electrical prints? How about a rubber stamp for Proprietary, As Built, or Final Build to show only when you are ready to release drawings? This can easily be attained inside of SOLIDWORKS Electrical Schematic with just a slight adjustment to the title blocks. To accomplish this, a layer needs to be created for each rubber stamp or watermark that is wanted on the drawing set.
If you are using SOLIDWORKS Electrical Schematic, is it tied to your server at the office, but you need it at home or on the road too? How do you make this work for you? These simple steps allow you to work at the office or on the road with SOLIDWORKS Electrical Schematic.
Routing wires in SOLIDWORKS Electrical can sometimes be tricky. In this two-part blog series, I’m sharing tips and tricks to make the process easier. In this blog, we’ll discuss the Route itself and all the parameters and parts required for successful functionality. These areas are just as important as the Wire, Component and 3D Model.
In this SOLIDWORKS Electrical tutorial, I’ll share a few items to keep in mind when routing wires that will make the task easier. Let’s look into SOLIDWORKS Schematic and SOLIDWORKS Electrical 3D for these key tips!
The management of user rights at a more granular level has been an often-requested enhancement. Previously, if the permissions did not fall into one of the pre-defined profiles there was not a way to get part of one and part of another. With SolidWorks Electrical 2020 there are significant improvements to the user-rights management.
Whether 3D or 2D, you will have to deal with it. If your typical workflow involved creating individual arrowhead and line combinations, then trying to link that to text elements, you know what I’m talking about. And it never fails, as soon as you think you’re done, here comes the inevitable change request. Back to moving the elements and adjusting lines.
This article guides you step by step through the process of including rows and columns on your title blocks when customizing your drawings in SOLIDWORKS Electrical.

Typically, this information is represented in a single line of text, but occasionally the text becomes unreasonably long and needs multiple lines. To wrap attribute text in SOLIDWORKS Electrical, use the Multiple Attribute command in the Symbol Editor.
A common requests I receive, when it comes to wire numbering, is to have the wire numbers connected to a PLC named with the PLC Channel mark, terminal or address. Initially, I believed this could be handled with traditional formulas as I might with wire marks displaying the component origin/destination (another common request).
