Top  Previous  Next

To insert the plan view block, go to

DM Electrical arrow One Line Devices arrow Insert Plan View Block

The Insert One Line Device Block dialog box will open as shown below.

Make certain panel H1 is selected as shown above, then press OK. You will then be prompted for the insertion point and rotation angle of the block. After inserting the block, you will be prompted for the location of the panel label.

For the purposes of this tutorial, the panel should be placed in storage room 106 to match that drawing shown below. You will need to click on a point on the inner wall of the storage room for proper placement.

If you are not satisfied with the location of your panel, you can adjust it using normal AutoCAD commands (move, rotate, stretch, or grips). You can also erase it and insert it again using the Insert Plan View Block command.

Repeat the above steps and insert transformer T1 and panel L1 as shown above.

Once you have inserted your panels on one drawing, Design Master Electrical can automatically locate the panels for you on other drawings in your project.
