Im trying to modify a wiring sequence. The wiring sequence contains two terminals which I want to move to the first and last positions within the sequence so that the terminal diagram shows only one wire connection to the terminal.
I know how to edit the wire sequence but quite often the modification doesn't actually reflect the change I've made until I turn off AutoCad Electrical and turn it back on again. Am I missing something -
The wiring sequence contains two terminals which I want to move to the first and last positions within the sequence so that the terminal diagram shows only one wire connection to the terminal.
This doesn't sound right. If you have two terminals, why would the terminal diagram only show one? If there are two in the schematic, there will be two on the connection/wiring diagram.
Can you post an example drawing(s) for clarity?
I probably didn't explain myself very well. The attached screen shot shows a wire sequence. Im referring to sequence number 2. There shows two wires connected to the terminal. I want to move this to the top of the sequence so that there is only one wire in the terminal. This can be done using 'move up'. However, once I have done this, quite often, when I go to the terminal diagram, there is still two wires shown connected to the terminal, and the 'edit wire sequence' has not updated. And repeated 'edits' do not update until I close down AutoCad and restart it.
Oh man.. As a person on the receiving end of these drawings I never knew that the cad elves upstairs had that ability..
What you're basically saying is they could produce a list that says "wire from here to here to there and then to that terminal" ?
Absolutely. That is the wire "From/To" report. (See attached image for an example.)
Now this does require AutoCAD Electrical. And most people have it put that information directly on the drawing (See second attached image.) But there's nothing preventing you from doing both..
You may have to do a full project rebuild to fix the problem you are having. I found that after doing a wiring re-sequence, that I had to do a full rebuild of the project to have that information moved into the scratch database properly.
