- [Instructor] SOLIDWORKS is a global leader in engineering and design software used throughout numerous industries. SOLIDWORKS: Electrical is a powerful design package that helps simplify the design and development of complex electrical systems. This includes generating electrical schematics, line diagrams, cabinet layouts, PLC drawings, wire lists, automated final reports, and much, much more. Hi, I'm Justin Flett and welcome to SOLIDWORKS: Electrical.
I've been working with SOLIDWORKS and SOLIDWORKS: Electrical as an electromechanical engineer and designer across numerous industries for over 10 years. In this course, we'll first take a look at the entire process of generating an electrical design project from the ground up. First we'll learn the basics of the software and how to generate simple electrical documents and drawings that can be used within our project. We'll then look into creating some PLC drawings and electrical enclosure layouts.
Finally, we'll lean how to generate some industry-standard final reports and output such as wire lists, parts lists, cabling lists, and much more. Not only can SOLIDWORKS: Electrical generate electrical schematics and documents, but also has an immense, continuously growing electrical library, with millions of prebuilt electrical components and symbols. This means you don't have to worry about building up your own component library and can just jump right into your designs.
By the end of this course, we will have a strong foundation of the SOLIDWORKS: Electrical fundamentals, and we'll be able to quickly and efficiently generate some electrical project documents. Now let's get started with SOLIDWORKS: Electrical.
