Description

Description

Have you ever wanted to utilize the 3D power of Inventor software with the intelligence of AutoCAD Electrical software for substation protection and control panel layouts? Tracing connections from the panel in the control house to the cable tray and then out to the equipment in the yard can be a very tedious process when you don’t have really good visualization tools. With AutoCAD Electrical software and Inventor software integration, users now have the ability to produce the panel layout in the substation control house in 3D.

Target Audience
