AutoCAD Electrical 2016 Essentials
 
 
Course Description:  
 
This course is designed to introduce a new user to the basics of AutoCAD Electrical. This class covers the indispensable core topics for working with the AutoCAD Electrical software. In this training class, students learn how to use many of the powerful electrical drawing creation tools in the software. Students create schematic drawings (ladder logic and point to point), panel drawings, and PLC-I/O circuits using automated commands for symbol insertion, component tagging, wire numbering, and drawing modification. In addition, students are introduced to methods of customizing AutoCAD Electrical software symbols, circuits, and databases. Other topics covered include title block linking, reporting tools, templates, and project files.
It is recommended you have a background in electrical design and working knowledge of AutoCAD
