A drawing on paper remains evidently two dimensional with little to no room for improvement. A PDF is a step up with the ability to pack a few layers of data but without the ability to have detailed instructions to drive manufacturing excellence.
Time is money in the engineering world. Every step in the design process is under increased scrutiny to reduce cycle time while maintaining accuracy while projects grow more complex by the minute. The E3.series software suite offers a number of add-on tools that will increase productivity by facilitating or automating common processes and by offering more intuitive interfaces for design environments.
E3.series software offers a number of add-on tools that will increase productivity while allowing collaboration between all engineering disciplines. Keep in mind that functionality will vary based on your own MCAD and PLM solutions and their versions. Let’s explore the add-on tools in E3.series and see what’s available.
This video will show you how to create and use subcircuits in E3.series. Predefined subcircuits can be stored in the E3.series database. These subcircuits can be added to your project to complete your circuits. In E3.schematic, subcircuits are inserted intelligently into a drawing.
In E3.series 2018, table symbols are now supported for all devices on formboards. Now when you select any device on the formboard, you’ll find the command Place Table Symbol is now in the context menu.
E3.series 2018 now provides a way to control which objects are highlighted when an area selection is done.
One of the new features in E3.series 2018 is the ability for users to create their own line and application fonts. The advantage to this is now users can create completed graphics such as spiral tape and corrugated tubing, which will follow the curvature of a segment on a formboard. These line fonts can be defined for any graphic entity in E3.series.
