Description

Description

In this presentation we will discuss how to create and store standard parts (devices) into a library and how to build and store standard configurations of those parts into a catalog of controlled circuits. We will also detail various methods for developing a standard workflow, and we'll look at how to hone in on the most effective methodology using AutoCAD Electrical software. We will give consideration to the incorporation of existing (brownfield) projects, and we will demonstrate how to produce various drawing sets once rendering is complete. You will also learn how to extract a bill of materials from AutoCAD Electrical software and convert it into a standard format ready for exportation into a material ordering system. We will place emphasis on a step-by-step presentation approach, and we will allot time for questions and answers so that audiences will find the presentation useful, regardless of experience with AutoCAD Electrical software.
