Adding Aluminum Wires to Your Project

Monday, April 7th, 2014

Some of our long time customers have old customization files that do not include aluminum wires in the wire size list. This page provides instructions for adding aluminum wires if they are missing.

1. Download this project.

2. Open the project and look at the wire sizing table using the DM Electrical->Customization->Wire Sizing->Edit Project List. Confirm it has the aluminum wire sizes you want added.

3. Use the DM Electrical->Customization->Wire Sizing->Copy Project List to Master command to update your master wire sizing information. All newly started projects will include the aluminum wire sizes.

4. Open any existing projects that you want to add aluminum wires to. Use the DM Electrical->Customization->Wire Sizing->Copy Master List to Project command to add the aluminum wire sizes.
