Document Revisions in SOLIDWORKS Electrical

Designers and engineers sometimes are required to make changes to their drawings. If there is any change in the document, it is required to be given a revision number, the verification and validation date, and person. SOLIDWORKS Electrical can automate the process with just a few clicks. Not only that, when the document is revised you can take a snapshot of the design.
