One of the many benefits of SolidWorks Electrical is the ability to customize a vast number of elements to fit your particular electrical schematic design needs. Today we are going to talk about how to customize the Equipotential and Wire Numbers. In the following example, the Wire Number will be changed to coincide with the row in which they originate. This formula can be changed to fit design needs, this is just an example.
Go to Project > Configurations > Wire Styles
Select the Wire type you wish to change
** Wire styles must be changed individually, per wire type, per project
Double Click either “Equipotential Formula” or “Wire Formula” (depending on which you would like to change.) See Diagram below for difference.
This is the screen where you are able to customize how your wire marks behave. The variables from the database are on the right hand side of the window and are able to be selected. Type “STRZ( VAL (“ then select the location/row and then the equipotential counter (from the right hand menu) complete the string by typing “),3,0)”
Now your wire numbers will wire as shown below. They will reference a row first then the number of the wire on that row.
