The New Dimension in Electrical Design Evolution or Revolution?

how electrical engineers moved from paper sketches to 3d

Hi Folks! Its chilling winter here in Australia, so let's have some warms up from electrical design and drafting news..

Over the past 260 years, the way we light our homes and power our businesses has changed dramatically. We’ve traded candles for light bulbs, abandoned the abacus for super computers, and swapped selenium wafers for energy-efficient solar panels. We now have a generation of products that are connected to the internet to improve the quality of our lives–think smart appliances, fitness monitors, and intelligent trash cans.  These innovations reflect advances in scientific thinking—and advances in the way engineers design increasingly complex electrical design systems.

1752: Lightning in a … Kite? electrical design

Benjamin Franklin was an inventor, writer and statesman, but he was also an engineer who developed electrical systems using hand sketches. His best-known feat? Verifying that lightning is actually electricity.

In June 1752, history says that Benjamin Franklin sent a key attached to a homemade kite into the air. “As soon as any of the thunder clouds come over the kite,” he wrote, “the pointed wire will draw the electric fire from them, and the kite, with all the twine, will be electrified.” While there’s a good chance Franklin made up the tale, his theory was ”electrifying.”

1879: A Little Menlo Park Magic

Picking up where Franklin left off, Thomas Alva Edison (aka the Wizard of Menlo Park) held more than 1,000 patents. In 1879, he introduced the electric light bulb. It lasted longer than previous models and employed a carbonized cotton thread filament.

Edison made a host of other contributions to electrical design, including the system of power stations now called General Electric, and schematics continued to be the planning tool of choice.

Although a true technological genius, Edison wasn’t all butterflies and rainbows— he electrocuted puppies, a horse, and an elephant in an attempt to label alternating

current (AC) power as dangerous. He lost this campaign and Nikola Tesla’s AC induction motor won, mechanizing factory work and powering household solidworks electrical design appliances.

But that (admittedly creepy) anecdote hardly tells the full story of Edison’s life. He went on to improve life for generations of Americans with the phonograph, motion pictures, the storage battery, and more.

1907: Vacuum Tubes

Throughout the 20th century, electrical engineers used schematics to represent increasingly complicated systems for radio, medical devices, and computers. In 1907, Lee De Forest patented the audion, which enabled clearly audible sounds such as a human voice to be relayed and amplified using a three-electrode vacuum tube–the world’s first triode.

1929: Machine Packs Serious Voltage

Wiring diagrams based on physical connections entered the electrical engineering vocabulary in 1929, when Alabama native Robert Jemison Van de Graaff built the first working model of an electrostatic accelerator.

Its purpose: accelerate particles, break apart atomic nuclei, and unlock

the secrets of individual atoms. Van de Graaff’s invention is used widely in science classrooms and paved the way for future electrical research.

1947: Transistor Transition

Schematics advanced yet again when electrical engineers began creating them based on logical connections. A major breakthrough occurred in 1947 when John

Bardeen, Walter Brattain, and William Shockley collaborated to demonstrate the transistor— which amplifies or switches electrical signals—at Bell Laboratories. The semiconductor, which paired two gold contacts and a germanium crystal, represented an upgrade from cumbersome vacuum tubes.

1977: We’ve Gone Digital!

By the late 1970s, functions such as placement and routing became available in automatic physical Electrical design Drawings

electronic design automation (EDA)— marking the birth of the digital schematic. Bell Labs, along with companies such as IBM and RCA, held advanced tools that operated on mainframes or 8-bit minicomputers. In 1977, super minis provided massive amounts of memory for designs.

Today: Entering a New Dimension

For decades, companies have developed products that feature both mechanical and electrical components. The traditional product development process for an electromechanical product has created long design cycles due to sequential electrical and mechanical design, as well as the discontinuities which occur when different groups use different names for common elements.

There are challenges in keeping the Bill of Materials (BOM) accurate through the use of so many spreadsheets. Often, once the electrical design piece has been completed,

it is then handed off to the mechanical design team. After they complete their part of the design, the entertaining part happens when it comes to figuring out how the electrical pieces fit into the product. A physical prototype is built at this point and

the designers get out a ball of string or a measuring tape to figure out how the wiring will fit. Given all the powerful software design tools we have, it’s ironic that we have fallen back to low-tech ways of integrating the electrical and mechanical pieces of the design. As you might expect, this method is prone to introducing lots of errors

and delays into the production process, product documentation, and BOM.

Things have evolved a bit over the last couple years. Electrical schematics entered the third dimension in 2012, when SOLIDWORKS introduced powerful and affordable 3D electrical CAD software for Windows, merging the logical connections championed by Benjamin Franklin with the modern day need to build 3D physical connections.

Using SOLIDWORKS® Electrical software, you can easily design electrical schematics and transform the logical schematics into 3D physical models which integrate into the overall design. SOLIDWORKS Electrical 3D™ integrates with SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD modeling software to enable bi-directional and real-time integration of electrical components within the 3D model maintaining design synchronization and an accurate BOM. In this way, the entire engineering team can collaboratively work on a project concurrently, which not only produces a more integrated design; it can also lower project costs, and shorten time to market.

Another benefit of the integrated SOLIDWORKS solution for electro-mechanical design is the ability to analyze or simulate the operation of the entire model against real-world conditions, such as thermal stress or physical vibration–all without having to build a physical prototype. This seems like “common-sense” (which even a man like Benjamin Franklin would appreciate if he were alive today).

From light bulbs to intelligent trash cans—and from handwritten notes on paper napkins to 3D modeling—one thing is clear: electrical design has entered the next dimension.

What You should know about Solidworks and its History?

In the following article, I will describe you in short sentences the genesis of SOLIDWORKS. How did it happen and why SOLIDWORKS until today has been so successful.

In December 1993, Mr. Jon Deer Tick founded together with a team of engineers SOLIDWORKS in Waltham Massachusetts / USA.His goal was to create a 3D CAD software (computer-aided design), therefore to develop a computerized program that volume body based modeling and to create technical drawings digitally. In addition, this software should be as user-friendly and do not require costly hardware.

Deer Tick opted for the Windows platform, in the very successful release of Windows 95. He and his team developed and programmed over a year and came up with the "initial release" 1995th first edition.

The friendly interface and intuitive handling of the parametric features made SOLIDWORKS quickly became popular. SOLIDWORKS was Distributed by certified resellers, offered in 1996 for the small machine builders in Germany at affordable prices and became the German success story.

In 1997, the French software company Dassault Systèmes took notice of SOLIDWORKS success stories and bought it for 310 million US dollars. There were initial doubts by SOLIDWORKS users, whether Dassault SOLIDWORKS would be implemented in the CAD program Catia or would give up entirely, but the Dassault Systèmes quickly realized the potential of SOLIDWORKS and focused on its further development.

Since SOLIDWORKS is continuously developed and expanded modularly. There are a variety of additional applications and industry-supporting functions. Such as the Sheet metal features or the weldment features.

Currently SOLIDWORKS is worldwide, more than 3,073,600 licenses in 23,400 locations in 80 countries.

fundamental issue with designer or drafter

What are the Main fundamental Issues for 3d Designer/Drafter?

Designers and drafters encountered a few fundamental issues during the design process. It addresses the process that comes with 3D designer and drafter with creating a separate drawing production regardless of the manufacturing process. There have been several delays seen in the process. For example, if a drawing comes with an incorrect dimension, it offers a production drawing that can rework with time and massively disrupted.

We have a team of 3D designer drafters that do the manufacturing work and integrate the complete product development process. It adds lots of intelligent 3D design and drafting software available. It makes sure that your design and manufacturing work is mainly used daily. There is much intelligent 3d design and drafting software available for producing accurate manufacturing drawings. Additionally, if we talk about design and drafting company today, it helps to resolve all problems with ease.

We offer two essential questions during the design process

1. IS THIS PRODUCT FINANCIALLY FEASIBLE?

The total cost to produce a product mainly influence a variety of factors. It primarily uses material and labour costs that seemingly offer small changes and significantly impact the overall cost structure. As a leading Australian design and drafting company, our costing ensure that no cost-related surprises come to you when your model goes into production.

Our team allows 3d designers/drafters to act in a better way. Our project managers and the Engineers pursue new product development that gives a clear cost perspective regarding compliance and the pre-calculated structures. It monitors the impact of changes as it is transparent and clear.

Additionally, it comes with advantages like cost-effective product costing. It comes with the ability to work with both original models and drawings. It uses 3D CAD programs or neutral formats like IGES or STEP. Here, the user can define different materials and make changes to drawing or relocate the manufacturer’s place. The model changes are displayed immediately in cost per piece.

2. CAN THIS PRODUCT BE MANUFACTURED?

Australian design and drafting company support 3d designer/drafter and mould makers and respect the feasibility of your products. In the development process, there are complicated shape models that change regularly. The export process and the data repairing have high error probabilities and inaccuracies.

There are a few reasons, like when mould makers wait until the final design of a product is established and develop the final form. The cost of valuable production time is also well-noted. We at Australian Design and Drafting are early to make form. In addition to this, we offer a correct form of geometry that covers sketches, audit and control of thickness. For example, Plastics can perform a detailed filling analysis by determining the optimum position of the injection points.

The team ensures the proper filling pattern of the component, tracks the form weld lines and adds necessary points.3d designer/drafter can have a complete product development process and ensure effective communication between design and production during the entire development process. Australian Design and Drafting Services provides quality and cost-effective 3d design and drafting services across Australia.
