Introduction to AutoCAD Electrical




This course provides an overview of many AutoCAD Electrical utilities designed to enable students to quickly create and manage electrical-controls production drawings.  Students focus on how to build intelligent ladder diagrams and panel layouts, and how to leverage the intelligence built into AutoCAD Electrical.  Hands-on exercises representing real-world design scenarios for the JIC (US) standard are included.



To teach users the basic commands necessary for creating professional electrical-controls drawings with AutoCAD Electrical software.  After completing this class, users will be able to: Navigate the AutoCAD Electrical user interface, Manage projects and the multiple drawing and inter-drawing relationships contained in electrical projects, Insert wires, add wire numbers, manage circuits, and create point-to-point wiring diagrams and drawings, Insert and annotate schematic symbols, edit drawings project wide with commands that are specific to the electrical design environment, Extract information from drawings to create Bill of Material, Wiring, and other reports and create and annotate panel layout drawings with lists of components that are extracted from schematic drawings.



Before attending this class, students should have a working knowledge of the following: A recent version of AutoCAD, Electrical drafting, design, or engineering principles and Microsoft Windows. This training is compatible with Windows XP, Windows 8 and Windows 10.
