Solid Edge Electrical Routing

Digitally integrate wire harness design.

A dedicated, process-driven environment for the efficient creation, routing and organization of wires, cables and bundles in a mechanical assembly, Solid Edge Electrical Routing provides easier transfer of harness topology data between ECAD/MCAD environments, which reduces design time and manufacturing readiness.

Capabilities

Electrical Routing

A structured workflow

Quickly define a 3D path between parts and define wire, cable and bundle properties. Use intuitive wizards to assign electrical components and connectors to preconfigured Solid Edge parts. Once a design is complete, export ready-to-use net list files to the schematics so that the wires can be annotated with  lengths and used for electrical analysis.

Live feedback of design violations

Built-in design error checkers provide live feedback, warning of design violations, which are relayed by graphical symbols next to the wire. A tool tip offers advice on how to fix issues.

Complete digital mock-ups

Move straight from design to manufacturing with realistic wire representation for complete digital mock-ups of your design, eliminating the need for expensive physical prototypes.

Bridge Solid Edge environments

A unique connected mode links ECAD and MCAD environments, providing dynamic updating of harness design aspects. When a change is made in one domain, it is highlighted in the other through cross-probing. Connected mode may only be used with Solid Edge Wiring and Harness Design software.
