Why SaaS-Based CAD Is Taking Over Wire-Harness Design

Consider exactly what wire-harness solutions are: comprehensive systems that integrate electrical wires, cables, connectors, and other components into structured assemblies.  They have to provide reliable and organized means of transmitting electrical signals and power in various applications. It’s complicated, in other words. If you’re working manually, the complexity only heightens, along with the costs. Working […]

Five strategies for improving output with circuit diagram software

Of all the types of electrical drawings, schematic diagrams are the most helpful for troubleshooting. A wiring diagram maker can give you the relative layout of the circuit components, and you can use symbols and components. But the wiring drawing by itself isn’t particularly easy for understanding circuit operation or troubleshooting. This is where a […]


ECAD and MCAD: Which to use and how to use them together  When it comes to wire harness design, there are two primary types of software: Electronic Computer-Aided Design (ECAD) and Mechanical Computer-Aided Design (MCAD).  These are essentially two different approaches to designing wire harnesses. ECAD software concentrates on designing the electrical components of a […]

3 tips for optimizing the wire-harness design process

wire-harness design process

If you can optimize the design process for your wire harness, you’ll gain significant cost reductions across the board, including testing and validation and your harness manufacturing. Simply put, optimizing at the design phase has a knock-on effect, speeding up the harness design cycle and improving your formboard while reducing design errors and quote-to-production cycle […]

10 basics to know about wire-harness design

wire-harness design

It never hurts to remind yourself of the basics when it comes to designing your cable harness. For your application to function as intended, every component and cable assembly must be carefully considered. This goes for your wire harness. The use of all wire harness types can improve the efficiency, reliability, and safety of a […]

Space industry incorporating automotive technology

It’s clear from the frequent headlines that competing billionaires perceive space as the ultimate flex of their wealth and power. Although it’s cool to be a little churlish about these displays, there is no doubt that technologies and innovations will trickle down and drive demand for production. A large part of space and satellite systems […]

Democratising Space: Private space investment

Funding your very own suborbital space flight in a custom-made spacecraft has become the ‘it’ thing for billionaires to do in recent times, with Elon Musk paving the way for private space investment two decades ago and tens of others following suit. Both Richard Brandson (with Virgin Galactic), and Jeff Bezos (with Blue Origin), have […]

Mobility as a service: Will you own a vehicle in the future?

Car ownership has already passed its peak, and in the year 2030, just nine years from now, around 10% of us may have given up our cars altogether…  So it’s not the future of flying cars we’d all hoped for yet, but it’s certainly a more sustainable one. It will be the world’s largest cities […]
