Trace Software Becomes SolidWorks Solution Partner and Announces Release of elecworks

Saint-Romain, France (June 4, 2009) - SolidWorks Corporation, the leader in 3D CAD technology, has named Trace Software, a leading electrical CAD company, as one of its selected Solution Partners on the basis of its development made on elecworks™, its brand-new electrical CAD software, and its real integration to SolidWorks for electrical and automation 3D design projects.

elecworks™ : the electrical experience for SolidWorks has begun

Successfully presented in preview at the SolidWorks World Conference in February 2009 at Orlando, Florida, elecworks™ is now available. elecworks™, designed to cover the electrical and automation needs of the SolidWorks engineering offices, increases collaboration between electrical and mechanical teams and allows them to create automation and electrical installation projects better designed with faster documentation generation.

elecworks™ is a high-end new generation of software which allows users to work on all areas of a digital installation in real time, based on a SQL Server database driven kernel with multiple views : single line diagram, schematics, equipment management, input/output tables, etc.

elecworks™ ensures bidirectional links & data update between equipment in the 3D SolidWorks mock-up and the corresponding symbol in the relevant diagram.

From within SolidWorks, with elecworks™ 3D Layout module, you can access and visualize all the schematics related to your design as well as use the seamless integrated features to bring a new way of sharing information between mechanical and electrical teams. This allows better evaluating the impact of the electrical needs on the complete design.

With elecworks™ Routing and Cabling additional module, from the cable and wiring lists and the connection information you will be able to design the cabling system on the SolidWorks mock-up and to update the part list table with the different calculated lengths.

elecworks™ will now be sold worldwide through the SolidWorks Dealer network. The first version is designed to run in English, French, Spanish, Chinese, and Portuguese. German, Italian, Japanese and Russian will shortly follow.

"We are very pleased that Trace Software joins the SolidWorks community and provides our customers with a smart and seamlessly integrated electrical and automation solution. This is a very good answer to an increasing demand of our customers". said Bertrand SICOT SolidWorks sales manager.

"elecworks™ is the result of an unprecedented technological development. We developed elecworks™ to provide SolidWorks designers with the tools to use and share electrical and automation information on the 3D mock-up. Our goal is to make it the electrical CAD worldwide de-facto standard. elecworks™ is definitely the right choice for the companies using SolidWorks as their design tool." said Etienne Mullie, CEO of Trace Software.
