Newest Features:


Time is money, especially when it comes to managing electrical and automatization projects in the engineering industry.  How does elecworks™ 2018 add value to the engineering design project in your company?

Amongst the latest features:


  • Automatic bridges bring automation to the next level. As a result, it automatically connects two terminals with the same equipotential or two terminals connected to the same wire, saving valuable design time.


  • Natural sort is also a considerable advantage when it comes to the design process, saving time.


  • Higher level of customization. Now it is possible to set and customize an array of different properties when it comes to the symbols attributes inserted in a project. Apart from the chance of setting a specific style for the project, the user can also add different parameters to each drawing, such as layers, line types and text styles.


  • Enhanced automatic routing in 3D for PTC®Creo® The first ever product able to work in a bidirectional and real-time synchronization with the mechanical research department using the digital model of the 3D project. Now you will be also able to route the wires the elements through the ducts inserted in the 3D model or define your own path inside the cabinet.


  • Automatic integration between elecworks™ 2018 and Windchill (PLM) which guarantees the integrity of your design project thanks to the centralized management of all the stages of development, fomenting at the same time a great interaction in between all partners.


  • New classification manager so you can now add your own classification to the symbols, parts, title blocks.


  • Deferred update Mode. Thanks to our new deferred mode feature, users can reduce and save drawing-time for schemes, in large projects.
