Trace Software International announced that a new release of elecworks™ , its flagship electrical CAD software, will be presented at SolidWorks World 2010, from 31 January to 3 February, at Anaheim, in California (USA).
Elecworks™ , the new electrical CAD software integrated to SolidWorks was launched last year at SolidWorks World 2009 and was received with great interest and curiosity. A pilot program had shortly followed successfully afterwards for all those from around the world who wanted to test this new tool and to join in its enhancement.
This year, elecworks™ is back with a new release that will be shown at SolidWorks World 2010. As a reminder, elecworks™ was initially conceived to facilitate collaboration between electrical and mechanical teams in better designing automation and electrical installation projects. It is ideally suited for designers, engineers and managers who want to integrate electrical schematic in their existing SolidWorks platform as a simple, easy to use and cost-effective add-on.
This new release includes new or enhanced features:
— Improved automatic generation for PLCs.
— Automatic routing and wiring within SolidWorks.
— Compatibility advantages with SolidWorks and AutoCAD.
All the new features are a direct result of listening to the pilots and customers’ requirements. “What our clients need is an easy yet powerful tool integrated to their existing platform to meet their needs in electrical design and produce their documentation in the same way as their mechanical projects with seamless interoperability and no learning curve” said Dr Pedro Puig, Managing Director of Trace Software International.
Together with this new release, other breakthroughs have taken place to provide a more comprehensive support on elecworks™: a new Shanghai-based office has opened recently and a new website was launched last December in English, French, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese and Chinese offering an e-Content Portal section for elecworks™ users, in particular to share SolidWorks component libraries.
