Titleblock design in SolidWorks Electrical Drawings (scheme, line diagram, terminal strip, etc.) are created using a copy of the Titleblock file. It is therefore useful to represent all the elements you wish to find in the drawings (logo, graphics, etc.) in the titleblock. The settings (display of the grid, types of lines, styles of texts, etc.) used in the titleblock will automatically be available in the drawing. A titleblock consists of graphics entities (lines, texts, etc.) and attributes allowing the propagation of the data entered in the properties of the elements of the project (book, folder, drawing, etc.). This article will explain how you can use SolidWorks Electrics’s built-in feature “title blocks manager” to customize existing title blocks and make new smart Title Block. Titleblock manager All the titleblocks are stored in a library allowing you to manage existing titleblocks and also to create your own. New: Used to create a new titleblock. Open: Used to open the selected titleblock(s) in the graphical interface in order to modify the SolidWorks Electrical Tips & Tricks graphics and/or the definition of the attributes. DWG import: Used to import a file in AutoCAD format and transform it into a titleblock. Delete: Used to delete the selected titleblock(s). Properties: Used to open the properties of the selected titleblock. Preview: Used to open the selected titleblock in a preview window. Cut / Copy / Paste: Used to duplicate the selected titleblock. List mode / Thumbnails / Configuration: Used to manage the display and display configuration of the titleblocks in the right-hand part of the dialog box. Archive / Unarchive: Used to generate a ZIP file of the selected titleblock(s). Unarchiving allows titleblocks in the archive file to be added to the library. This procedure can be used to exchange titleblocks between two companies for example. Display sub-classes content: Used to activate display of titleblocks stored in the lower levels of the classes. Close the manager when editing titleblock: If this box is checked, the manager closes automatically when you edit a titleblock. Editing a titleblock Whether the titleblock has been imported or created using the Copy/Paste command, you can edit it to make any changes you wish. Select the titleblock you wish to edit in the right- hand part of the titleblocks manager and click on the "Open" icon. The titleblock opens in a graphical interface.
