Hello All,

 

I'm a student and I'm designing an electrical plan and a ceiling plan. Basically, what I'm looking for is CAD blocks of the light fxture and electrical plans (as shown in legends), so I can just insert the blocks into my drawing.

 

Do you know how to get them for free or if Auto CAD has it somewhere?

 

Thanks,

Paula

I have been using AutoCAD Electrical for many years, for many different companies. On many occasions I have been asked to create a report that contains all the specific information about particular cables as a bill of materials. As things stand I can create a bill of materials report of all components within my schematics which is useful, however it doesn't link together the relevant parts of a particular cable. Eg. (Cable Tag, Part number), (Connector 1 Tag, Part number), (Connector 2 Tag, Part number). Basically a 'harness' report, it would also be good to have a rundown of the component parts of each of the sections eg. (Cable marker part number) and a list of individual parts list for the connectors including accessories within the same report. I realise I can get all this data as things are now, but to tie everything together as a complete cable I have to do this manually in a spreadsheet.

This post seems to have become a catch all for questions. It was meant to just be an announcement about the blog.

 

I would recommend starting a new thread for questions unrelated to the blog.

 

Regarding the cable report - it might be possible to get what you want with a customized user post .lsp file. I can probably help you with it if you can provide the information you want to see in the report. It is easiest to start with a report that is closest to what you want, say the cable from/to report, then let me know what other information you need, for example the CAT  and MFG for CMP1 (field in cable from/to report). If you can point me to fields in other reports, even better.

Pat

You can find the French copy of the Help at http://docs.autodesk.com/ACAD_E/2014/FRA/index.html . I do not believe there are any 3rd party manuals for AutoCAD Electrical.

NO, it does not. We are using a combination of Inventor and ACADE to get it done. I have been after Autodesk for over 5 years to get these 2 softwares working together. Solidworks electrical and their 3D package use a common database. I am looking into it because if Autodesk does not do something soon, I may be forced to switch to Solidworks.

NO, But If you are willing to make up work arounds and have a few programs written, then you can do panel wiring similar to solidworks. I have been doing it. The biggest problem is ACADE and Inventor do not work well together.
