The mechanical model often drives the electrical design for placement and wire routing. There are multiple M-CAD tools used to author the 3D designs like Dassault Systemes CATIA/SolidWorks, Siemens NX, Creo, Inventor, etc. An...
To help strive for right-first-time design and to support full digital mock-ups Zuken have developed links between E3.series and all major MCAD vendors, Using the E3.3D Routing Bridge, schematic and connection information from E3.series can be interfaced to all major MCAD systems. Collaborating between E3.series and your chosen MCAD tool allows concurrent design. Mechanical engineers and electrical engineers can work independently or collaboratively.
Electrical and MCAD integration, if you’re not already doing it, has the potential to save you a good deal in the electrical product development process.
Zuken and Siemens connect electrical design and mechanical CAD systems, helping engineers ensure electrical harness design accuracy. This technical solution brief from Design World explores how electrical wire harnesses designed using Zuken’s E3.series can be imported into Solid Edge for routing around a mechanical assembly.
Zuken is partnering with Solid Edge to help end the divide between electrical and mechanical design. This article explores how electrical wire harness design and routing the harness around a mechanical assembly can be completed faster and with greater accuracy.
