|1Greetings||.1-1 ELECTRICAL 19 eKIT OVERVIEW|
Thank you for your interest in the Electrical eKit by ARCHIdigm. Before you decide to purchase this product we would like to inform you about what you get and how it works so you don't end up buying something you don't want.
This kit is not a software product and it does not do anything on its own.. It is a library of Object Styles and MvBlocks designed exclusively for Autodesk®'s AutoCAD Architecture 2017 and up CAD program. Autodesk's MEP products come with their own libraries and tools for MEP work and this is not a substitute for those software products. The Objects in this Kit are exclusively for Architects and Designers using AutoCAD Architecture only. Another way of saying this is that the content offered in this kit is for design not engineering.
This product was designed to update, improve and expand upon the stock electrical symbol content that comes with AutoCAD Architecture. It includes all new 2D Annotatively Scaled MvBlocks with two Attribute Values. It also includes a large collection of 3D MvBlocks for realistic Renderings.
New for Electrical 21 eKit: New fire related Life Safety 2D and 3D MvBlocks have been added. Two new ceiling fans, two security cameras and five elevator controls have been added.
|2Product Features||2-1 ELECTRICAL 19 eKIT OVERVIEW|
This product has been designed to work entirely within AutoCAD Architecture's Content Browser. Each product comes as a Catalog within which you will find Tool Palettes and Tool Catalogs organizing the various components found within the product.
The 2D MvBlocks in this product were designed to update the old electrical symbols found in AutoCAD Architecture's stock library. The improvements we made include consistent Attribute Tags (2 for every symbol), Text Style control for Attribute Tags and the "S" in switch symbols and Annotative Scaling.
All of our symbols have been placed on a single Tool Palette with tools for drawing power lines and other related tasks.
The 3D MvBlocks in this product were designed to provide the type of results you would expect in AutoCAD Architecture: 2D Symbols in Plans and 3D Blocks in 3D Views, Elevations and Sections. The one limitation, however, is that AutoCAD Architecture does not provide a way to have Annotative Scaled Blocks combined with non-Annotative Scaled Blocks in one MvBlock. In other words, the 2D Symbols for the 3D MvBlocks are fixed at a scale of 1/4" = 1'-0" (1:48).

User Guide, included with each product, explains how to install and add Content Catalogs in AutoCAD Architecture.
and IT Managers:
Some offices have highly customized template files with unique Display Representations, Sets and Configurations that may not work with our kit. We designed this kit for optimum performance using the default template files that come with ACA but all that means is that we utilized the High, Medium, Low and Presentation Display Configurations.
The Object Style files are devoid of undesirable Layers, Colors and Plot Styles.
