From time to time as I learn more about this program I dabble with the radial wire connection in symbol builder.
What i have tried;
If I take a motor from the library and do not alter the location or delete the radial wire connection I can design the desired symbol and the radial connection does what I want it to do.
All other wire connections I can delete and reinstal with complete confidence.
My company desires a particular format for a transformer symbol requiring a radial connection.
When I add a radial connection from the dialog box it inserts OK but NEVER works.
I have set the transformer symbol family to MO as a trial but no change.
I have inserted the new symbol on a different drawing with no change.
I have checked what I am doing by compairing a sypplied motor symbol with my new symbol and cant find a difference.
A seperate project has been to edit the source/destination symbols to reflect my current needs but this too has eluded me.
With this problem I simply do a lot of manual editing.
Luckily I only have 3 to 5 drawings in a project.
My previous CAD manager could not make it work on ACE2010. He lived computer applications.
I am using ACE2012.
I can get around my problem but as the facility is there I would like to use it.
Thanks John Q
