     There are a lot of manufacturers with components already available in the SolidWorks Electrical Library. However, if you cannot find what you need or you make your own component and need to use it in SolidWorks Electrical, the video below will show you how. A Nixie tube was created in regular SolidWorks, a manufacturer was added to the library, and then the Nixie tube was made into an electrical component using the Electrical Component Wizard.
