CLASS DESCRIPTION

DESCRIPTION

This course provides an overview of many AutoCAD Electrical utilities designed to enable students to quickly create and manage electrical-control 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 NFPA (US) standard are included.

TRAINING OBJECTIVES

OBJECTIVES

To teach users the basic commands necessary for creating professional electrical-control 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.

PREREQUISITES

ARE YOU READY?

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.

My Instructor Martin Bezuidenhout has been great to work with and learn from during this entire course, I am looking forward to completing Electrical AutoCAD training with him in the future. He works at my pace and allows me time to work through activities on my own, yet he is there with all the support I need when I need it. He has been able to answer all of my questions so far and for…read more

The instructor was very patient and helpful. I feel i was given time to understand what i was learning as practice the things that i felt would be most useful to me. I feel fully prepared for the next training course.

The course materials are so well-organized utilizing time in following the training classes that is good for the instructor and trainee. Martin delivered very well and clearly knew what the students needed to know from the materials, but I felt the training period should have been extended by another 8 hours. The training book is excellent!
