NEWS IN BRIEF

Linius integrates with SolidWorks

Linius Technologies reports that it has entered into a cooperative relationship with SolidWorks to integrate its EMbassy wire harness and cable design software with SolidWorks’ 3D mechanical design software. With the integration of the two products, engineers using SolidWorks to model electromechanical assemblies will be able to fully design and document wire harness and cable systems within the SolidWorks 3D model. Linius says that EMbassy already allows SolidWorks users to reduce harness design cycle times and increase quality, and adds that the integrated version will provide full associativity between the wire harnesses and cables and the SolidWorks 3D model.
