Technological innovation is a never ending process of iterative design. The products we use evolve and change, often incrementally and sometimes drastically, over time. This leaves the engineer with the normally tedious task of backtracking through old projects to update their part designs.
Typically an engineer may spend countless hours manually reviewing and updating previous projects every time a new part is released. In SOLIDWORKS Electrical, you can reduce this tedious process to a rapid workflow that only takes a few minutes. Update and replace part data using one of two tools: the “Update data” tool or the “Replace data” tool, both located under the Process Tab as illustrated below.
