i want to show wire's name and cross reference for all instruments in my project
Where, exactly? On the print? In a report?
practically i am drawing electrical circuit with eplan software that this software show cross reference automatic
now i want to use solidworks electrical instead of eplan and i need to all of details such as cross reference ، or for example i want to define what contact of relay be used
The cross-reference has two dependencies:
1. Your symbol must have a cross-reference attribute
2. The symbol type must be set to the correct value in order to show the cross reference
Assigning the contacts can be archived by adding an manufacturere part with circuits to a component or by manually editing the component properties.
To show the wire name, you will have to execute the numbering dialog, after that wire names should be shown. There are several menu items on the right mouse button to show or hide cable/wire attributes.
You can find further information to all three topics in the Electrical Schematics Training Handbook.
all of components have cross reference attribute and i set manufacture for them
but cross reference don't be shown
can i send my project for you and you check it?
hi dear Loretta
finally i can show cross reference but manually
can you tel me how it is possible that i have cross reference automatically?
Could you send me a video of how you are doing this today?
Remember, you must also tell the symbol if it is a parent or child. This tells the software how to treat the symbol.
If a symbol is a PARENT, it will create the graphical object x-refs defined under project -> Configuration -> Cross References. This is what you would see to the right of coil contacts. the position of this graphic is controlled by the cross reference offset value stored with the particular title block. The value represents how far from the edge of the working column to place the xref, keeps t hem lined up nice. A parent ALSO excludes it's own location from the list.
Child symbols will require the XREF attribute, but it will only contain the location of parent symbol.
Same Level symbols, if I recall, show all xref points for the symbols.
It's something worth playing around with to see the many combinations you can do.
