Bill of Materials Toolbox
The BOM toolbox gives you versatility at your finger tips. Bills of Materials can be produced for a single drawing page, an entire project, a selection of items or an assembly. The BOM can be produced on any drawing sheet or in Microsoft Excel with the click of a button.
Not only do the regular reports work in those two formats, but E3.Toolbox allows you to customize the information collected and displayed without editing or creating code. The BOM can be created top down or bottom up with various options to control the output type required. For example, users can choose whether to count up pins on connectors that are unused.
Item No. balloons are created automatically to assist with compatibility with different drawing styles and standards. The on-page BOM is created using customizable header and row symbols where text types can be added to display desired attributes. The Excel output can be customized to include all major attributes with a drop down list from your library.
Wire Run List (WRL)
Generate detailed information for wires in a harness, project, sheet or sub-assembly. Include or exclude panel wires, unconnected wires and multiple other options.
The wire run list can be created in an Excel sheet or placed on the drawing page with the click of a button. This enables customized reporting without coding.
Custom attributes can be displayed to accelerate production efficiency. Symbols can be customized to manage the look and feel of the wire run list.
Splices are simple, yet uniquely complicated, part of any harness assembly. Documenting a splice incorrectly or inadvertently can quickly snowball into an expensive mistake very quickly.
The E3.Toolbox splice tool assists users in documenting to perfection. The three documentation options based on the most widely used industry standards include:
- General (standard table)
- Spider splice (displays each wire with fanout)
- Wire direction table (identifies the direction of wires)
ECAD offers many advantages over traditional manual processes with the ability to select parts from a vast database of smart components and synchronization with your business systems like ERP to drive a complete quotation based on the design.
We will demonstrate workflows that help designers take the next leap in productivity in various industries like aerospace, harness manufacturing, industrial machinery etc. The attendees will have a chance to ask questions and learn about the latest developments towards fully automating your design workflow.
