At our “What’s New in EPDM 2014” presentations I hinted there would be a new Web version of EPDM coming out soon. It is getting so close I can almost taste it! I’ve been told not to ask how, but my boys at Javelin have a preview video, check it out! http://www.javelin-tech.com/blog/2013/11/enterprise-pdm-2014-web-portal/ I think we can all agree this is pretty groovy! Like how they sneak in a little demo of SOLIDWORKS Electrical in there? Clever eh? [Little Canadian humor.]

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

With the release of SOLIDWORKS Electrical, users can now create simple or complex electrical schematics and effortlessly integrate your electrical system into your 3D design. Electrical has several capabilities that enable these tasks, such as the single-line schematic planning tool, multiline schematic creation, symbol libraries, and 3D integration tools. Over the next several weeks, I will explore some of these new tools and show how these capabilities are used. For this blog, we are going to look at one of […]
