Annotation Organizer Dialog

Sunday, June 24th, 2012

You asked, we produced:  the DraftLogic Electrical Annotation Organizer now has a snazzy new dialog to run it with!

The dialog allows you to control all aspects of the Annotation Organizer tool & further allows you to create, save, edit, and delete templates of settings.

Our June 2012 release includes the dialog with a number of preloaded templates suitable for the most commonly needed metric and imperial plot scales.

Learn more about how to use the Annotation Organizer through its dialog at this forums entry:

FUTURE ENHANCEMENTS

At some point in the future, we desire to release the luminaire tag automated placement with three enhancements versus today’s version: even faster execution, better logic for maximizing the number of best location placements versus secondary placements, and last but not least, some enhancements based on your feedback.

So, please try the new and improved luminaire tag tool out and let us know how you would like to see it enhanced!

New and Improved Luminaire Tags…Part 1

Wednesday, February 29th, 2012

Question: which building electrical design software automatically places luminaire tags for you? DraftLogic Electrical, of course! Well, you likely all very well knew the answer to that one. DraftLogic Electrical has been automatically placing luminaire tags for you since day one, and further to that it has been automatically categorizing and sequentially numbering the tags to allow for the completely automatic generation of a luminaire schedule.

Although we have always provided you with industry-leading automation like that in the automated luminare tags and luminaire schedule, We at DraftLogic have always wanted to give you more control over the luminaire tagging and also to make even ‘smarter’ placements. With today’s release of DraftLogic Electrical, that is all coming to life.

With the new luminaire tags, you now have lots of control over the results of the automated placement. You choose one of several different density levels and a buffer, scale, and maximum service distance (i.e. distance that multiple luminaires will ‘share’ the same tag).

In about 8 weeks, we plan to release the luminaire tag automated placement part 2 with enhancements versus today’s version: faster execution, specific handling for centering in tbar cells, and last but not least, some enhancements based on your feedback.
