Importing Parts from a Folder

You can import all the SolidWorks parts from a specified folder into the Component Library.
  • Importing parts does not physically move parts on the disk. CircuitWorks just adds references to the library.
  • CircuitWorks adds the parts to the library using each component’s name on disk for both Component Name and Part Number fields.
  • If CircuitWorks is configured to match components in the library using name and height, then you must edit the component heights of the imported components to ensure CircuitWorks matches them rather than creating new models.
