The best and the most exciting part of what’s new in E3.series 2020 is hands-down the sheer breadth of topics. E3.series 2020 is the best release yet!
The E3.series 2020 release is full of exciting new features and improvements. Notably, more than 25 major enhancements covering a wide variety of topics make this the best release yet! The new features in E3.series 2020 cover a wide range of topics.
E3.WiringCockpit is a great Cabinet Production tool to use alongside with E3.series. Making it easier to connect between engineering and manufacturing...
We are closer than ever to a perfect design-to-manufacturing solution for simple and complex harnesses alike. In fact, the Harness Builder 2020 for E3.series release has more than 15 significant enhancements.
The 2020 release of Harness Builder for E3.series is more than exciting, it is outright amazing. There are more than 15 major updates all across the toolset. New features include automation, reporting, and documentation options. Furthermore, the new downstream manufacturing, testing, and visualization connections are groundbreaking. I will cover our favorite 2020 updates in this two-part blog series.
In part 1 of this blog series, we took a look at different project settings and configurations. Reviewing how to configure E3.series to meet your company’s needs and help with productivity. Like the project settings, you can also configure your library for E3.series. In addition to the library configuration, there are useful E3.series tools that help save time when working with your library...
We are going to explore E3.series Project settings to improve the configuration, immaterial of your status as a new user, or a long-time user.
When we use design tools we look for tool tricks to help us get the job done in less time and with less manual work. Reducing redundancy or removing unnecessary steps in our tasks are excellent ways to achieve that goal. However, when learning how to use a new design tool those useful tricks aren’t always discovered in the learning process.
This video is a demonstration of how to import a wire to-from list in harness builder. This feature allows the user to define connection information such as signals, the to/from devices, cavity information, and the wires/cables in Excel to import into an E3.series project.
When creating symbols for our library components many of these symbols require a similar set of text types. It can be tedious to add each of those text types to every new symbol. Using a General Template Symbol that contains all the text types you want, makes this task a breeze.
Discussion of the remote working options available with Zuken’s E3.series. E3.series is an enterprise-grade engineering platform with many collaborative capabilities and solutions.
Tech-Tip: Exporting Multiple Unplaced Groups
A modular electrical design comes with its own set of unique challenges. However, the basic principles of the solution are the same. With this in mind, let’s think modular when it comes to a modular design.
In this Tech Tip, I describe the steps to import 2D DXF drawings provided by a connector manufacturer into E3.series Database Editor for use as a connector symbol’s graphic, as well as how to scale and orient the imported graphic so it can properly represent the connector.
Communication between disciplines is increasingly critical as complex designs require more and more collaboration. Communication gaps often riddle engineering companies. E3.WiringChecks and E3.WiringCockpit is here to facilitate communication between design, checking, commissioning, technicians, and all parties involved after the initial design.
The mechanical model often drives the electrical design for placement and wire routing. There are multiple M-CAD tools used to author the 3D designs like Dassault Systemes CATIA/SolidWorks, Siemens NX, Creo, Inventor, etc. An important part of a successful electrical design process is the collaboration between electrical and mechanical design principles. Zuken’s E3.series tools have enabled this collaboration with much success.
