When it comes to designing today, efficiency is everything. Time is one resource we all wish we could have more of, but we can never get. So, we are forced to better use the time we have. For most designers, that’s the main draw to SOLIDWORKS tools —the time savings gained through efficiency. SOLIDWORKS Electrical is full of many features that add up to huge time savings. In this Video Tech Tip, learn all about how to configure your schematic so you can pass the equipotential mark across the symbol on your electrical schematics.
When designing electrical schematics with SOLIDWORKS Electrical, one way to save a substantial amount of time is to eliminate the need for duplicating efforts. If you’re already doing something, why would you want to do it again, right? If you’re adding marks to your wires, why would you want to go back and manually redo the numbering if you want something other than the default out of the box scheme.
The video shows how SOLIDWORKS Electrical is able to pass the equipotential mark through a symbol. This is done based on the intelligence of a symbol placed on your electrical schematic. Instead of breaking the wire into two pieces with different marks, you can push the equipotential through or across the symbol, so you can get the desired effect on your schematic.
