  1. Please introduce yourself…

I am Javier González, Technical Manager for SOLIDWORKS Electrical for the UK and Nordic countries. Since I joined SOLIDWORKS in 2012, I’ve been working with our resellers worldwide in order to give visibility to our products and I constantly visit customers to understand what we can do to improve their design experience and manufacturing cycle. Although I spend most of my time in the field, I am based in Barcelona.

  1. What is your webinar about, who is it for and why should I attend?

This webinar will show attendees how to design electrical cabinets and create connections automatically between them, based on user preferences. This makes for quick and easy generation of manufacturing documents, as well as the early detection of errors, speeding time to market and reducing project cost.

  1. What’s your best quick tip for anyone using SOLIDWORKS Electrical?

I think potential users should consider that they no longer need to accept costs that have historically been part of the design and production cycle. Problems with documentation lead to problems with prototypes. With SOLIDWORKS Electrical, those problems are gone.

  1. What’s your favourite feature of SOLIDWORKS Electrical?

From the customer perspective and because of the impact in costing procedures, that would have to be the automated routing feature.

  1. What makes automated routing so good?

Automated routing allows SOLIDWORKS users to create connections based on the positioning of the components in a 3D environment. Finding the optimal route for each wire created is near effortless. This significantly reduces scrap material and manufacturing costs.

  1. When does your webinar take place?

9.30 am-10.00 am GMT on March 16th. Register here.
