Hi, I wanted to use QuickCAD for lighting design in the theatre, and was
wondering if there are any USITT lighting instrument templates out there
that I could use. Can I use an AutoCAD 12 template, or is there another
one I can get, or am I out of luck? Appreciate the help, Del

Hiya Del.

I presume you're asking for symbols for specific lighting used in your
profession, not templates as we understand them here. I might suggest you use
search engines like Metacrawler or Infoseek with the appropriate filters in the
text input block. Like

USITT lighting symbol* cad

Try inverting the order and other permutations. If you can't find any, you might
give a look at http://www.force2.co.uk/pages\welcome.html where you can purchase
symbols for AutoSketch and QuickCAD. Other than that, I give up.

I would add that you can create your own symbols in either program and create
your own library. Then you could sell it to others in your field. Make a buck.

Hi Del,

Unfortunately, there are no available lighting templates/symbols for
QuickCAD....you need to source bits and pieces in ACAD drawing/DXF and then
convert into QuickCAD.....I know, because I am in the Audio Visual industry
and have spent many hours searching. Anything in this field is rare at the
best of times.

You will find some of the manufactures have files for download...Martin
Lighting http://www.martin.dk/ have an excellent site with very impressive
schematics available for download and Selecon have a CD-ROM available with
equally impressive schematics. Selecon may have the specs available from
their web site, if they have one but I was fortunate to obtain a CD-ROM from
one of their sales reps.

However, a template in the form of what I think you are looking for is
available from Altman Lighting (a New York based company) www.altmanltg.com
and I have attached the file in R14 format to save you the trouble of
searching.

Cheers & good luck......let me know how you go.

I have a bunch of Lighting symbols which conform generally with the USITT
standard, which are in Drafix Cad format which should open just fine in
Q-Cad Millenium. email me if you want em.
