An integrated 3D electrical development environment which enables the physical design of wire harnesses and cabling in the context of the Digital Mock-Up

Building and Civil 3D Electrical Engineer is a role that covers the Physical Design of wire harness and cabling within the DMU of a product. It is part of the complete integrated Electrical process and has tight synchronization capabilities with the Electrical and Fluid Systems Design role and the Electrical Manufacturing Preparation role.


The Building and Civil 3D Electrical Engineer role delivers a process-specific solution for designing physical wire harnesses. This solution is driven by logical specifications (schematics) and is integrated with harness manufacturing preparation. By delivering a realistic simulation for 3D wire harness packaging in an integrated environment, this powerful solution reduces design time and increases the overall quality of large-scale electrical systems. It also enriches the design through realistic deformation of flexible harnesses by taking into account environmental conditions like gravity.

  • Synchronize electrical schematic to 3D design to improve electrical systems quality and consistency
    • Through the dedicated command that automates the creation and update of the 3D electrical harness design from Logical Design, the productivity for the design of 3D wire harness design in enhanced. The initial 3D electrical design can be generated very quickly from the 2D electrical systems design combined with its 3D space reservation.
  • Design and optimize electrical 3D harness bundles and cableways accurately in the context of the full product
    • Electrical design process is fully integrated within the RFLP process. Systems designers and 3D electrical designers can now share a single referential for their design, taking advantage of all the V6 architecture components, including collaborations tools like co design, co review sessions, chat, snapshot exchange
  • Route 3D wires and cables to obtain exact bundle diameters and wire/cable lengths
    • 3D users can now minimize the time on identifying the design changes in the electrical systems design as they are automatically highlighted by the product. You will have better control over the logical to physical Synchronization process, with these new automation capacities. At the same time, this automation stays under the control of the user, who keeps the flexibility to monitor the design changes.
  • Increased design quality with full consistency between Logical and Physical electrical systems.
    • The traceability from logical to physical design is insured with the V6 RFLP data model. This product and its dedicated command to check the difference between systems and 3D electrical design will enable even further the consistency between Logical and physical electrical systems, reducing at the same time the risk of errors.
  • Benefit from the Logical to physical approach even if you are working with external ECAD applications.
    • The full electrical engineering design process can be implemented on the rich 3DEXPERIENCE platform, or data from external ECAD applications can be utilized to benefit from the powerful logical to physical integrated design approach.
What's New

New Role

  • Extended range of electrical 3D components
    • 3D electrical components such as electrical equipment, mountings, connectors, shells, back shell, etc., as well as wires, cables, harness supports and protections (tape, tube, etc.) can be quickly and easily created. Electrical and mechanical behavior can also be added by defining connection points for electrical devices to facilitate electrical design e.g. connector connection point, cavity, cavity connection point, back shell connection point, bundle connection point, etc.
  • Standard part management in catalogs
    • The Electrical 3D Systems Designer role takes advantage of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to efficiently store and manage all electrical objects. Objects are classified within catalogs where the user can query or easily navigate to in order to analyze and use all graphical and metadata quickly and easily.
  • Design 3D electrical networks in context (harnesses and cableways)
    • The Electrical 3D Systems Designer role allows the creation of round, rectangular or oval bundle segments that are routed between electrical devices, supports, or any mechanical parts. Several routing modes are available to manage cable slack, imposed length or bend radius constraints. Finite Element Modeling technology can be used to provide realistic harness shape and behavior characteristics that take into account cable protective covering, number of routed wires and splices. Connectivity between cable bundles, segments and electrical devices or supports is ensured and can easily be checked and analyzed.
  • Analysis tools to check design quality
  • Wire/Cable content import and routing into network
  • New 3D Design capability from 2D schematics
