Join Hagerman and Company Controls Team to explore AutoCAD Electrical.  Whether you are an engineer looking for a better electrical solution for design or have been using Electrical for years, this seminar will provide insights and workflows that your organization can benefit from.

The morning will start with basis of AutoCAD Electrical, industries best served and a demo of the basic capabilities and workflows.  From there we will explore some of the advanced features and use cases including parent-to-parent, terminal best practices and Fluid Power capabilities.

From there we will be “Breaking Down the Environment File” so that you can understand and apply the variables that can make deployment and standards easier to manage and change.

Finally, we will be discussing the Electro/Mechanical (EMX) link between AutoCAD Electrical and Inventor.  Whether you use Inventor, Solidworks, PTC, UG NX, with the AnyCAD capabilities you can connect your mechanical and electrical designs to ensure form and fit, get wire and cable lengths and ensure that everyone one is sharing a common BoM.

This seminar is being hosted by the Hagerman Controls team that has real world experience in electrical and fluid power design and first architected what has now become AutoCAD Electrical.
