This is in Solidworks Electrical 2d. I have three PCBs in a drawing in the same "location". Lets say PCB1 and PCB2 both have 20 connectors associated with them. The connectors are clearly subordinate to the PCBs. When I try to add connectors to PCB3 it forces the J number to start at 21 (instead of 1) PCB3 IS NOT nested within PCB1 or PCB2. It… (Show more)

So I have a device with numerous connections placed on one particular page, i am drawing circuits to some of these connections such as power but I want to show its other auxiliary connections on a different page. Is there a way to do this easily without redesigning the symbol?    Thanks

Click to view contentI am used to AutoCAD and this is my first project in Solidworks Electrical. I would Like to number my schematics in a similar way but I dont want the Hexagons or Lines.

Hi SWE team, trying to download few parts from ECP site. example a connector. After it was associated to a symbol on line diagram and a cable connected, noticed that circuit information was not there. I could not connect the cable core to the connector terminals. anything missed? or i downloaded a wrong library from ECP?   I'm fresh on SWE,… (Show more)

Is there a way to display a user text to a origin/destination arrow eg 24V+? so that it automatically shows up on both origin/destination arrows?  While the page cross reference is obviously very useful, if there are two or more arrows located in the same horizontal/vertical grid then they show the same cross reference ID. And of course there are… (Show more)

Hi all, I just got a machine up to 2019 and I wanted to experiment with the new views in the Report SQL Expert mode.  Does anyone have more info on this or a quick video explaining how these work?  I see when I add (double click) one of the extended view variables it adds a vew_tablename_variablename but the query then always reports an error when… (Show more)

Hi Guys,   We don't have an electrical background and very less experience with the use of SOLID WORKS Electrical.   As part of a university project we have to create a schematic for an existing cabling of a 3D-Print-Machine.  In a first step we traced the cables and listed the different components, afterwards we drawed everything as a one… (Show more)

Click to view contentI am having some issues with the terminal strip editor.  All of my terminals are coming in as "Reserve Terminals".  Is there a way to change these to Default Terminals and Earth Terminals as necessary?  What is a reserve terminal?   The drawing is not showing the proper Grounding labels, etc. as I have set up in the drawing config.  All help is… (Show more)

So I understand that the electrical PDM connector is a new tool and still has several kinks to work out. I have been struggling to get everything functioning as we would expect. I have had some success and some fails, I have been able to get SWE properties to map to PDM variables and PDM variables to map back to Solidworks electrical projects. But… (Show more)

When SOLIDWORKS 2018 was released, there was a video touting a new way to integrate SW Electrical and PDM.  In the video, there is a SOLIDWORKS PDM tab in the user interface and you could have your projects and libraries represented in the vault and you could view data cards, change state and such.  Sounds great.  I can find zero information on… (Show more)
