Creating Symbols with Symbol Builder

Todays post takes a look at working with the symbol builder tool. If you are not currently running 2009 there has been a change to the interface of the symbol builder tool.

Creating an AutoCAD Electrical symbol includes adding the necessary attributes based on the symbol type, and for a schematic symbol, selecting an appropriate file name. Symbol builder uses attributes templates to facilitate adding the attributes. If you select a schematic symbol type, symbol builder suggests a file name based on the AutoCAD Electrical naming conventions. You will also use this tool to take existing non-AutoCAD Electrical Blocks and make them Electrical intelligent.

Lets take a look:
