Dear sir,


    Please let me know ,whether we can import symbols to electrical cad in a bulk manner. Since, most of our customers are facing this issue. like, they want to symbols from other software to ACADE. Also, it is very difficult to built large number of symbols that are not in the libraries using symbol builder.


thank you.

Doing this successfully really depends on the source data that you have. If you already have symbols as blocks then it may be possible with some scripting and Lisp. If they are lines, arcs and text, then it would be more challenging. If you can provide more information it may be possible to offer additional suggestions.
