Trace Architect's Receptacles

The Trace Architect's Receptacles command is used to trace a receptacle layout from another drawing that was done by someone else.

Before using this command, create receptacles using the Receptacle Project Schedule command.

This command should be run from the drawing that you are copying the receptacle layout from. The drawing should not be one where you are doing your electrical design.

To trace the receptacles, go to

DM Electrical->Receptacles->Trace Architect's Receptacles

The Background Mapper dialog box will appear.

Receptacles--Background Mapper Dialog Box

See the Trace Architect's Light Fixtures section for more information on how this command works. The Background Mapper dialog box works the same in these two commands.

There is also a detailed tutorial with step-by-step instructions for the use of the light fixture version of this command that can be found in the separate tutorial files.
