Description

This class shows how after you create an electrical design in AutoCAD® Utility Design software, you also need to create a single-line circuit design using dynamic blocks and linetypes to provide visual connectivity for utility crews to use while installing the equipment associated with the design. A single-line drawing provides the best detail in the energizing/installation process at the equipment level and shows connectivity all the way back to the substation. When an overhead pole is designed with TV/telephone/primary/secondary, you can create the service risers attached to the pole using riser details and dynamically place them in the model space design. These features save time by enabling crews to know in which quadrant the customer or crews are to install the risers.

Key Learnings

  • Create a detailed network of connectivity at the equipment level, applying it to the real-world installation
  • Use dynamic blocks in AutoCAD Utility Design to add more detail to the electrical network for customer and utility crews
  • Draft primary cable linetypes to underground and overhead equipment, placing crucial symbols and text to further the rendering
  • Place riser details showing the quadrants of underground conduit/cables for high and low voltage utilities attached to a pole
