    elecworks™ 2018 : new integration with Windchill, greater level of customisation and enhanced automatic routing in 3D for PTC® Creo® 

    New Features:

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

    Amongst the latest features are:

    • 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 customisation. Now it is possible to set and customise 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 synchronisation with the mechanical research department using the digital model of the 3D project. Now you will also be 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 PTC Windchill (PLM) which guarantees the integrity of your design project thanks to the centralised management of all stages of development, providing at the same time a great interaction between all users.
    • 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.

    Customers with an active subscription will be able to download this new version directly from the software
