My company has recently decided to purchase AutoCAD Electrical. We have looked into buy this before in 2008 and recieved a Hands-on Test Drive. I was wondering if it is possible to get a copy for AutoCAD Electrical 2013.

You can go to Autodesk's website and download a full working copy of Autocad Electrical 2013 that will work for a 30 day trial.

Hi idwooten,


Sadly Autodesk does not make these Books any more.

(I think 2009 was the last version to ship with a Hands on "Test Drive" book)


You could get a one of the official training guides, they are pretty good, but they sometimes miss steps, or mislead you. (I would suggest getting your local reseller to train you in the product, that way you get the most out of the training guide)


You can also find online guides, tutorials, and videos on the Autodesk website, youtube, etc.


I hope this helps,




James Alger
