As part of the Autodesk solution for Digital Prototyping, AutoCAD Electrical makes it easy to share the electrical intent by enabling both electrical and mechanical teams to work collaboratively on digital prototypes.

Why use a generic application to design electrical control systems when you could use AutoCAD Electrical?

Created by electrical control designers, AutoCAD Electrical delivers what you need most - automation of all your electrical control design tasks - so you can finish in just seconds what used to take hours or even days.

As part of the AutoCAD family, AutoCAD Electrical automates the tedious task of creating ladder and point-to-point style drawings. It tracks all wire numbers and component tags and cross-references coil and contact information for increased drafting productivity. AutoCAD Electrical generates automated reports, such as bills of materials and from-to wire lists, helping to eliminate errors associated with manual reports. you can save time by passing wire connectivity information to and from AutoCAD Electrical and Autodesk Inventor® software applications.

AutoCAD Electrical features help you create designs faster than ever. These include:

  • Fast Control Schematic Generation
  • Automatic Wire and Numbering Component Tagging
  • Smart Panel Layout Drawing
  • Automatic Reports

AutoCAD Electrical includes integrated data management with Autodesk Vault software, a centralised application for workgroups that securely stores and manages work-in-progress design data and related documents. For additional functionality, such as revision control, file and folder security, and BOM and ECO management, learn more about the complete Vault family of products - Autodesk Vault Workgroup, Autodesk Vault Collaboration and Autodesk Vault Professional.
