"Designs of electrical components with total accuracy. A great experience"

What do you like best?

This version of SolidWorks is excellent for digitally creating any component, piece or electrical circuit that you have in mind, you have options that other design softwares do not possess and make the final finish an exact piece as you had planned. For my part I like it a lot, because I feel that I make parts and contactors at the highest level. In addition the design on the screen is usually very professional, from there comes his name.

What do you dislike?

I have not failed with this software, it has worked for me in the organization with which I work and from that I have achieved an important promotion. If in the future I discover disadvantages, I will let the support team know so they can solve it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend it because it is absolutely necessary to digitally create the pieces before being able to create it physically, and this version of SolidWorks is the most capable because it is the most professional that exists in electrical designs. Also, its 3D visualization is excellent and I am sure to recommend it 100%.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have managed to increase the production of electrical components, parts and contactors, and by increasing production the total profits increase directly.

"Great perfection in electrical parts"

What do you like best?

The best software that you can have in the company that you work, because each electrical component is fundamental, and the design has to be perfect to then take out the finished product. And that's where SolidWorks Electrical Professional made me work more comfortable, because now I have control over each piece and I'm sure I made it great because I have this software that backs me up. It is complex to use and you have to have experience in designs to be able to use it, but it is the most competent software on the market to perform this necessary task. In addition to having multiple functions in your arsenal to take your designs to the highest technological level.

What do you dislike?

Maybe the price is a little higher compared to other similar software, but their intuitive ability to make each piece is unparalleled, I think it's worth paying a little more and so be delighted to get a piece perfectly created virtually. The truth is that I do not see the price as a disadvantage, I believe that the service they provide is of total quality and for that reason its cost is completely reasonable.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The truth is that you do not have to think much, because when you implement this software in your organization you will get results from the beginning, the pieces and electrical components that you can design are of total perfection because the technology that this program has is at the forefront of the technology of the design software. I recommend it with my eyes closed.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We increase profits incredibly fast. Because when we made the pieces perfectly well, the customers recognized it and apparently we made ourselves felt in the work environment. Previously we took a long time to make electrical parts and the truth was not well designed, because before the organization where I work had a totally obsolete software and erea a little slow and cumbersome its use. But since the implementation of SolidWorks Electrical Professional the designs of the pieces are made in the best way and with the greatest possible accuracy.

"It is a product with a great variety of functions that allow an excellent integration."

What do you like best?

It is ideal to achieve a perfect operation and integration of tools that allow to improve the design of mechanical and electrical parts. We can set many parameters thanks to the list of materials. SolidWorks Electrical Professional is ideal for your environment because it has an excellent integration and operation for all designs that need a product with a variety of functions.

What do you dislike?

It is a product that requires a very powerful computer. But taking into account the capabilities and the large number of tools that allow improving the aspects of mechanical and electrical designs I think it is not a problem.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The most basic and most complex functions are in SolidWorks. For this reason I am very convinced that it is a very functional and completely robust product perfect for all levels than any design.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Before SolidWorks Electrical Professional was implemented, we could not perform any variables in the designs. We always had mistakes and it cost us time and money when a design did not have the correct dimensions and characteristics. SolidWorks Electrical Professional solved many of our errors for design constructions.

"Better features at a higher cost"

What do you like best?

Its ability to schematize and plan in an orderly manner the electrical planes to be used place it in the forefront of software of this type in addition to its multiple tools that come with this package. It also has an excellent 3d visualization tool. The catalog of components to be used is very broad thus giving a huge margin of use of the program.

What do you dislike?

The price is somewhat expensive compared to other programs in the market including the same company so if the company is small it is not recommendable to start with this software. The transition from one state of the drawing to another is usually a bit slow and requires computers with large capacity to be able to use all the tools that Solidworks Electrical Professional has.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is advisable to perform the renderings separately due to the great capacity of resources that requires the computer, outside of this is a fantastic software which can be taken advantage of and although it is somewhat expensive the benefits and profits are appreciated in a very short time.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It helped us to digitalize all the plans that we have in physical and to be able to access them in a simpler, faster and safer way, also now the new electrical installations are made from there providing a significant improvement in the speed of creation of new products and being able to modify them in real time.

"Excellent software for electrical designs"

What do you like best?

Solidwork Electrical has an incredible gamma of components that can be adjusted to any job within the Company, besides the integration with the other software of the brand (Solidworks, Solidworks Simulation, Solidworks Electrical 3D) makes it a robust software with many applications inside of the company

What do you dislike?

Often the change from one software to another causes that design properties are lost and have to be modified constantly to correct, in addition the rendering tools tend to be very tedious and heavy so their use will always take away precious time, outside of this software is great and has no faults.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The software has great advantages and can be adapted to many uses within the company, its integration with other software of the mara make it an incredible set when using it, the ability to create simulations of the behavior of the components is simply great. is a software that any company of the eletric branch would be useful

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Solidworks electrical professional did not help much in the implementation and design of electrical systems, thus creating the schemes that would be used in the future and can even simulate their behavior, in addition to integrate it with the other products of the solidworks line we could interpret how we would do the system electrical in parts and models that were still in the design process within the company.

"Getting there"

What do you like best?

SWE takes away the tedious task of inputting repeated information on various drawings and tables. Along with that comes the benefit of changing multiple locations of the same information in one quick step.

What do you dislike?

The product is not where it need to be. There are issues with commands and functions that do not behave as they should (as with any software). But it seems to take SW a long time to resolve issues, even when major. There is no way to keep a fully functional backup and there is no way to lock down drawings in an active project. Any entities on the drawing not containing metadata are lost if SWE crashed or you have to rebuild your drawing through the database for any reason.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Check out ALL aspects before buying - not just the dog and pony show. If you need back-ups, steer clear (for now anyway), If revision control is a key, you must use their PDM (maybe it will work)

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It has helped organize our drawings and the information contained in them - even with the pitfalls and occasional corrupt file. Across the board changes are easy.

"Amazing diagrams and 3D pieces"

What do you like best?

Definitely it would be your 3D pieces, the finish is impressive. SolidWorks Electrical Professional is complex and every day I learn more about the wonders it offers.

What do you dislike?

Well, it would be the use of RAM, it is excessive.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I blindly recommend SolidWorks Electrical Professional. It fulfills without a doubt with all my expectations and even exceeded them.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Since I bought the product, the diagrams have reached a great level of detail that I never thought would be possible on a PC.

"SolidWorks in Formula One Racing"

What do you like best?

SolidWorks is very easy to use once you get a handle on how to use it. You can do this by looking it up on line. You can also call their customer support. The view used to create and look a products can be manipulated to show most angles.

What do you dislike?

I don’t like that because there are so many options - it can get confusing at times. This can be solved fairly easily though by doing your research on the product.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use it on our formula one racing team and it’s primarily used by electricians and mechanics. Not really by the firmware department.
