Circuit Loop and Homerun Layers

Monday, June 14th, 2010

The layer that circuit loops and homeruns are inserted on by default is controlled by the “Default Circuit Layer System” setting in “DM Electrical->Customization->Options->Edit Project List”.

The original setting for this option is “Same as One Line Device”. With this setting, the loops use the layer system of the panel or switchboard, not the device they are connected to.

You can also change this setting to be a specific layer system. If you do this, then the loops will use the layer system you select, not the panel layer system and not the device layer system.

This option controls the default setting. It is also possible to change the layer system used by a specific circuit. To do this, open the circuiting dialog using the “DM Electrical->Circuiting and Homeruns->Circuiting” command. Select the circuit you want to change the layer of. On the right side the “Layer System” will be listed. Choose the layer system you want and press the “Save Fixed” button.

If you change your default layer system or change the layer system of a circuit that already has loops inserted, you can use the “DM Electrical->Utilities->Coordinate Drawings and Database” command to update your drawing.
