As design complexity increases, so does the pressure on both electrical and mechanical design teams. Meeting deadlines becomes crucial, and avoiding time wasted on rectifying errors or redundant tasks is essential.

Streamlining the integration between electrical and mechanical domains can effectively address these challenges. By transferring wiring data from Capital Essentials to an MCAD environment like NX, the mechanical engineer gains access to all required information for routing tasks, eliminating guesswork and saving time. The resulting wire lengths can then be fed back into Capital Essentials for more precise simulation and analysis, enhancing overall product quality. Additionally, the 3D harness topology can be repurposed by importing it into Capital Essentials and converting it into a 2D representation, facilitating collaboration and reducing the risk of errors caused by data duplication.

This streamlined process not only minimizes potential errors but also accelerates the design-to-market timeline.
