Description

Description

So, you have hundreds, and maybe thousands, of standard AutoCAD software drawings that represent your electrical designs, and you’re uncertain about moving to AutoCAD Electrical software because you think you’ll have to redraw all your electrical designs. Well, guess what? You don’t have to. AutoCAD Electrical software ships with conversion tools that enable you to convert the standard AutoCAD entities into smart AutoCAD Electrical content. This class will show you how to use enough of the conversion tools to get you on the right circuit to energize those individual drawings into a project that recognizes all of the drawings that represent your product. This session features AutoCAD Electrical and AutoCAD.
