SOLIDWORKS Electrical Routing


Lesson Agenda
Lesson 1: Fundamentals of Routing - The first lesson of this course introduces the user to the basics of SOLIDWORKS routing, covering the different types of routes and the roles of routing components. The user will also learn how to set SOLIDWORKS routing file locations and settings.

Lesson 2: Basic Electrical Routing - Lesson 2 teaches the user how create an electrical route and add components to it, in addition to this they will use auto routing to create route geometry and learn how to add a wire from the library.

Lesson 3: Routing with Clips - In lesson 3 the user will learn how to route through existing clips and add clips whilst auto routing. The user will also learn how to edit, split and add splices, to a route.

Lesson 4: Electrical Routing Components - In lesson 4 the user is introduced to the routing component wizard and the electrical libraries. The user will learn how to create and end connector component and a clip component.

Lesson 5: Standard Cables and Reusing Routes - Upon completion of lesson 5 the user will be able to create, modify and use standard cables as well as use fixed length routes and reuse existing routes.

Lesson 6: Electrical Data Import - Lesson 6 helps the user to understand electrical libraries including cable and component libraries. During this lesson the user will create a From/To list to define connections and components, use route guidelines to help define routes and re-route splines through clips.

Lesson 7: Electrical Drawings - In lesson 7 the user will learn how to flatten a route for a route drawing using annotation and using manufacture, they will then add tables to the route drawing.

Lesson 8: Electrical Conduits - The final lesson of this course teaches the user how to create rigid and flexible electrical conduit routes and how to use 3D sketching to create rigid pipe routes. The user will learn how to modify cable/wire libraries and create electrical conduit bill of materials as well as add an electrical bill of materials.
