Assigning 3D Blocks

Monday, January 11th, 2010

Each symbol in Design Master Electrical has a 2D and 3D block associated with it.

The default 3D block name is the name of the 2D block, with “-3D” appended to it. For example, if your block is named “dm_elec-rec-duplex”, the default 3D block would be “dm_elec-rec-duplex-3d”.

It is possible to assign a specific block with a different name to be used as the 3D block. To do this, open up the block customization dialog. Use the DM Electrical->Customization->(Type) Blocks->Edit Project List command. For each entry in the list, there is a column labeled “Block Name” and “3D Block Name.” Change the “3D Block Name” column to match the name of the 3D block you want to use.

If multiple 2D blocks share a common 3D block, the “3D Block Name” column allows use to reuse them without creating multiple copies.
