SolidWorks 3D Mechanical CAD
SOLIDWORKS offers complete 3D software tools that let you create, simulate, publish, and manage your data.
3D CAD - SolidWorks 3D CAD solutions enable you and your team to quickly transform new ideas into great products.
Simulate electronic design with multiphysics for fluid flow as well as thermal analysis.
Electrical Design - Combine the electrical schematic functionality of SolidWorks Electrical Schematic with the 3D modeling capabilities of SolidWorks Electrical 3D and do it all in one powerful, easy-to-use package.
AutoCAD, DWG, DXF, eDrawings viewer
Free eDrawings Publisher software to publish eDrawings files directly from SolidWorks, AutoCAD, Inventor, Pro/ENGINEER and many others.
Each of the four free eDrawings Publisher products also includes the free eDrawings Viewer. eDrawings Publisher products are intended for CAD users who need to share products designs more effectively.
Autodesk - 2D and 3D CAD
AutoCAD is a suite of CAD software products for 2- and 3-dimensional design and drafting, developed and sold by Autodesk, Inc.. The original concept of AutoCAD in the 1980s was to promote customization and feature extensibility, and was what made it especially appealing to customers.
Most contemporary CAD products at that time offered little if any customization capability and most were far more expensive.
clever is your personal assistant within Inventor, for a quick access to where used and variants/copies. One click opens your drawing or model, or let you replace components.

Circuit Cellar - The Magazine for Computer Applications
Circuit Cellar Ink, the best magazine devoted to hardware and embedded computer development, or "What's Inside the Box".
Index to Circuit Cellar Ink - Dave Tweed
"By joining forces with Elektor International Media in 2009, we’ve taken the meaning of “global contest” to new levels. Engineers hail from the U.S., Germany, Netherlands, France, Spain, India, and more, to see who has the most skill and ingenuity to take their design ideas from an innovative concept to a winning solution!"
"The Portable Power Quality Meter uses an RL78 MCU to read power factor, total harmonic distortion, line frequency, voltage, and electrical consumption information and stores the data for analysis."
Portable Power Quality Meter
Circuit Cellar has always been written by engineers, for engineers.
IEEE - Electrical Standards and Publications
The full name of the IEEE is the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc., although the organization is referred to by the letters I-E-E-E and pronounced Eye-triple-E.
IEEE at Wikipedia
"IEEE is one of the leading standards-making organizations in the world. IEEE performs its standards making and maintaining functions through the IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA). "
IEEE Popular Standards
These volunteer training modules are meant to help volunteers understand how IEEE functions and to explain the many services IEEE has to offer. The Popular Standards include National Electrical Safety Code, Color Books for industrial and commercial power plants and Design Automation.
