Associating CircuitWorks Components with SOLIDWORKS Models

You can associate and disassociate CircuitWorks® tree components with SOLIDWORKS part or assembly files.

Associate Model lists electronic component data models from the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. You can associate each CircuitWorks tree component with SOLIDWORKS part or assembly files. After you associate a model from the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, the asterisk in the CircuitWorks tree disappears.

To associate a CircuitWorks component with a model:

  1. Open an ECAD file in the CircuitWorks application.
  2. From the CircuitWorks dialog box, in the CircuitWorks tree, expand the Components folder.
  3. Right-click a component and click Associate Model.
  4. In the Open dialog box, select the SOLIDWORKS part or assembly file to associate with the component and click Open.
    To dissociate an associated component in the CircuitWorks dialog box, right-click the component and click Dissociate Model.
    You are prompted to delete the dissociated SOLIDWORKS model when you dissociate the model from a selected component.
