The World's First and only Complete Electrical Design Exporting into Estimating Software: Go from Architectural FloorPlan to Completed Electrical Design and Estimate Up To Fourteen Times Faster
More Accurate and Complete Bids Produced Faster
DraftLogic Electrical is the only electrical design software available in the world that is able to completely automatically feed all line voltage elements of an electrical design into electrical estimating software*. Using DraftLogic Electrical and ConEst IntelliBid 7.0 together, an electrical designer/estimator can go from an architectural floor plan to a completed electrical design and estimate up to fourteen times faster than designing outside DraftLogic Electrical and manually entering their raw data into estimating software.
Integrated Project Delivery (IPD)
DraftLogic Electrical includes seamless integration with ConEst IntelliBid v7 estimating software for complete IPD. Prepare your bid starting in DraftLogic Electrical to quickly and accurately perform electrical design for the project. The material quantities gathered during that process are then automatically transferred into ConEst IntelliBid’s Count Sheets where the estimator then performs the final step to go from completed electrical design to completed estimate. When you win the bid, finalize your electrical design in DraftLogic Electrical, again transferring the design into ConEst IntelliBid to finalize your materials needs. Lastly, easily meet any as-built documentation requirements by updating your DraftLogic Electrical design, reports, and schedules--your schedules and reports are completely automatically updated, including the Single Line Diagram.
Completely Automatically Feed All Elements
With just a few mouse clicks, DraftLogic Electrical users can send all elements of their electrical design into ConEst IntelliBid's count sheets. After the handful of minutes export process is complete, all devices, for example luminaires, receptacles, and motors, are in their count sheets with associated detail. This alone saves immense amounts of estimator time in counting and data entry, but is nowhere near the extent of DraftLogic Electrical & IntelliBid integration. Panel schedules for every panel and every circuit are populated. Every interconnection from every Branch Circuit wiring run is populated, including support for DraftLogic Electrical's multiple circuit home run groupings, saving the estimator from any take-off and scaling work. Vast detail about each piece of switch gear, motor, and feeder is fed into their respective count sheets, saving thousands of keystrokes.

Bill of Materials Schedule Included in DraftLogic Electrical
DraftLogic Electrical also comes complete with an exhaustive Bill of Materials report that includes all conduit, wire, and cables for both distribution feeders and for branch circuits. Design-build and electrical contracting companies can use the Bill of Materials as the basis for an estimate of construction costs.
* DraftLogic Electrical feeds all system devices into ConEst IntelliBid's Count Sheets, completes all panel schedules, captures all switch gear, captures all motors, and captures all branch circuit wiring for line voltage systems (lighting, receptacles, small motors, heaters). At this time, users need to manually capture wiring for other systems, like low voltage systems.
