SOLIDWORKS Electrical portal & Gold Electrical Subscriptions

Looking at SOLIDWORKS Electrical Portal & Gold Electrical Subscriptions with Olly Smith, Applications Engineer

SOLIDWORKS Electrical Portal & Gold Electrical Subscriptions


The SOLIDWORKS Electrical portal is chock-full of useful content – including Manufacturers, books, projects, cables plus much much more! As you can see from the graphic below, it holds huge amounts of data from 565 manufacturers, over 7 million parts, 5 thousand symbols & nearly 7 million 2D footprints meaning there’s very little that you’ll need to create yourself.


This can be accessed from within SOLIDWORKS either the Manufacturer part library or the Help tab – Online Content. 


When researching for my webcast a few weeks ago I noticed that I was unable to access the Gold Content within the Electrical Portal.


The Gold content is symbolised with a yellow/gold medal next to the download button for each manufacturer/project, when selected it may state that you don’t have the correct subscription package to access this content. BUT all SOLIDWORKS Electrical customers with an active subscription are entitled to this content.

What may not be common knowledge is that customers start with the silver package and if they would like to access the gold content they need to activate it. Open SOLIDWORKS Electrical navigate to Library> Manufacturer part Library. Then select ‘Update Subscription’ and enter the login details (these are the same as the details to the portal). It should say subscription updated once completed.



Gold content from the portal can now be accessed.
