  • Route wiring and place components in 3D assembly models
  • Prepare 2D industrial control panel layouts
  • Analyze your models to calculate the correct wire lengths and wire harness designs
  • Use virtual simulation to ensure circuitry performs per specification, without waiting for physical prototypes
  • Interactively collaborate between ECAD and MCAD domains, even in disperse locations
  • Visualize electrical aspects of your design in a 3D environment
  • Fully integrate PCB layout and mechanical design environments
  • Access robust libraries and parts repositories
  • Increase productivity with full Teamcenter data synchronization

Solid Edge Wiring Design

A graphical design environment for creating wiring diagrams and service documentation. Features unique integrated electrical analysis and simulation that allow you to overcome electromechanical design challenges earlier in the design cycle. Includes configurable and re-usable layout design capabilities for use in the preparation of 2D industrial control panels.

Solid Edge Harness Design

A 2D graphical design environment for harness and formboard design. Automates the complete design-to-production flow. Automates the generation of full-scaled, manufacturing-ready drawings, a bill of materials and manufacturing reports, which significantly reduces production lead times and prevents manufacturing errors.

Solid Edge Electrical Routing

A dedicated, process-driven environment for the efficient creation, routing and organization of wires, cables and bundles in a mechanical assembly.Enables the transfer of harness topology data between MCAD-ECAD environments, reducing design time and manufacturing readiness. Unique connected mode feature highlights design changes in both environments through cross-probing. Live feedback immediately displays potential challenges.

Solid Edge PCB Design

Solid Edge PCB Design

Schematic capture and PCB layout tools that simplify the complex task of printed circuit board design. Includes sketch routing, hierarchical 2D/3D planning and placement, and ECAD/MCAD collaboration.

Solid Edge PCB Collaboration

Solid Edge PCB Collaboration

An open, interoperable collaboration environment for the development of printed circuit boards. Breaks down the communications barriers in PCB design by efficiently communicating design intent between ECAD and MCAD systems.
