One-Line Diagrams: Inserting Ground Wires and Other Graphics

<– Return to How to Use One-Line Diagrams


Our one-line diagram feature will probably not be able to draw everything you need to properly document your electrical design. Fortunately, whatever you cannot draw with our software can be drawn manually using standard CAD commands.

One example is ground wires. Company standards for how ground wire systems are drawn and connected to different pieces of distribution equipment vary widely. For these wires, it is best to manually draw them with standard CAD commands.

Another example is the structural elements of the building. You may need to indicate where on the building the grounding wires connect, or you want to draw lines indicating different floors of the building or different rooms. For all of these details, use standard CAD commands to draft what you need.

Our software draws as much of the one-line diagram as is practical, based upon the model that we have. For some details, using standard CAD commands to draft is the best solution.
