So you have hundreds, and maybe thousands, of standard AutoCAD software drawings that represent your electrical designs, and you are uncertain about moving to AutoCAD Electrical software because you think you will 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 and energize those individual drawings into a project that recognizes all of the drawings that represent your product.
- Learn how to convert regular AutoCAD lines into wires
- Learn how to convert AutoCAD blocks with AutoCAD Electrical components while keeping the attribute data
- Learn how to automatically update existing title blocks with project information
- Learn how to run bills of material, wire connections, and other reports on the upgraded files
