Can anyone let me know if Autodesk or another site offers a add-in package for IEC Standards? I know that it comes preloaded with the JIC. However we use IEC. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
From the Control Panel/Programs/Uninstall a Program, select Autocad Electrical 20XX and when you get to the Installation Dialog Box, select Add or Remove Features and select all the symbol styles that you want. It is also from here that you can add manufacturers to the database.
ACE by default installs only the JIC Library (we should be given the option to pick which library)
Actually you do get the option. If you select IEC as your default design style you will get the IEC libraries instead of the JIC.
I've also encounter same problem with IEC symbols, as you were saying it has an option wherein the default drawing can be set to IEC, can you please tell how can this be done. Please forgive me, I'm still new in autocad electrical. Thanks in advance.
I have been able to load the IEC Library but some of the slides are loading the IEC Symbols and some or still loading the JIC symbol!
Example: The title says IEC: Push Bottons, and the preview is showing the correct IEC symbol for push button, However when you click on the push button icon it shows up as a JIC symbol in model space. It is not doing this for all the slides, just certain ones.
Can anyone shead light on this subject?
The first place I would check is in the Project settings and verify which libraries are selected in the "Libraries and Icon Menu Paths" section. This area determines which symbols are inserted from the menus. These setting are Project specific.
In my Schematic Libraries I removed the “JIC” ones and added the “IEC-60617” and moved it to the top. My Schematic Icon Menu File reads
My Panel Menu is still set to the default. Would that need to change as well?
