Dear users and partners,

I’d like to start by thanking you all for your comments and suggestions; we really appreciate it and take everything into consideration. We are currently finishing off the new elecworks™ 2012 version which is planned for release next January, and we’ve just released SP1 for elecworks™ 2011 which is available now for all our subscribers and resellers.

During the last quarter, like most of you, we are striving to increase sales and close deals. We do that by any means we can think of; ranging from supporting our resellers during seminars, new presentation releases, to new promotional sales packs bundling specific software and services.

In the coming months we will be in attendance at more than two hundred “SolidWorks innovation days” from the US, Brazil to France and China where we expect to present our latest innovations to integrate mechanical 3D with 2D electrical schematics to thousands of designers and engineers. If you are available, check out our agenda to meet with our team.

Please do not hesitate to communicate your thoughts or remarks about our services and products. We really look forward to hearing from you!

Wishing you success,

Dr Pedro Puig. Managing Director ACERI / Trace Software International

New release: elecworks™ 2011 Service Pack 1
The new version available since October 3 includes new features with a special focus on user-friendliness.
  • Data import: simpler, faster and more user-friendly. The import of any type of data is possible via a single configuration file for different data files (components, terminal blocks, terminals, cables wires, wires, detailed wiring, etc.).
  • Easily move a component: with the intelligent copy-paste feature, it is possible to paste a component in another location. The symbol is renumbered in accordance with the project settings.
  • New wire label reports: wire labels can then be easily imported into a label design software.
  • Connection labels in color: a connection label can now display cross-reference data with either a component or a manufacturer reference. A color code helps to differentiate them and make drawings easier to read.
  • A new cable display option in 3D cable routing: to better distinguish each cable and easily find a routed wire. The cable line mode is ideal for large assemblies. Each wire takes automatically a different color and is placed next to other wires.
And many other improvements: new attributes added in the design of terminals, new catalog references, ...
The new version is available automatically via your software for customers with a subscription contract. See the complete list of new features in this Service Pack either online on the elecworks™ portal or in the Help menu > Documentation of your software.
