Creating 3D Electrical Blocks

Tuesday, December 29th, 2009

To create a basic 3D block for Design Master Electrical, use the DM Electrical->Customization->Block Creation->Create 3D Blocks command. This command will take a polyline or circle and extrude it to make a very basic 3D block for you.  It also helps you name the block correctly and creates it in the correct folder.

For more complicated 3D blocks, you will need to manually create them using standard AutoCAD commands. We recommend that the final block should contain 3D face entities, and not solids or anything else. We have found that 3D faces import best into other programs such as Navisworks and Revit.
