Autodesk recently commissioned a study comparing basic AutoCAD to the Electrical toolset (previously known as AutoCAD Electrical) for performing 10 common electrical design tasks.
Results showed that the Electrical toolset provided a dramatic 95% overall productivity gain compared with basic AutoCAD when these tasks were performed by an expert level AutoCAD user.
Here are 10 ways that AutoCAD Electrical Toolset saves your time.
1. Comprehensive Symbol Libraries
Time savings = 85%
Simple icon-driven menu system includes over 2,000 standards-based “smart” schematic symbols for inserting devices into the design.
2.) Automatic Wire Numbering & Component Tagging
Time savings = 82%
Places sequential or reference-based numbers on wires and components based on the chosen configuration. Unique component tags/IDs are automatically generated.
3.) Real-Time Error Checking
Time savings = 83%
Helps avoid errors during the design process. Requested changes are compared with the current project.
4.) Real-Time Coil & Contact Cross Referencing
Time savings = 78%
Sets up parent/child relations between electrical component symbols, even for different project drawings.
5.) Electrical-Specific Drafting Features
Time savings = 63%
Many commands specifically designed for electrical schematic drawings are provided, greatly increasing efficiency.
6.) Automatically Create PLC I/O Drawings from Spreadsheets
Time savings = 99%
Create PLC I/O drawings quickly from spreadsheets using the PLC I/O utility.
7.) Create Smart Panel Layout Drawings
Time savings = 61%
Create physical “footprint” representations of panel layouts in project drawings linked to schematic component symbols.
8.) Automatic Project Reports
Time savings = 97%
Automatically generate comprehensive project reports including components, wires, bills of material, etc.
9.) Share & Track Drawing Changes
Time savings = 86%
Share project drawings with basic AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT. Changes made outside of the Electrical toolset are easily tracked and reported.
10.) Reuse Existing Drawings
Time savings = 81%
Import external drawings using the Update/Retag tool. Reduce time spent renaming DWG project files.
