SHEETWorx runs inside AutoCAD and BricsCAD to create dwg files from Excel worksheet data. It can produce a single or multiple drawing files so it’s ideal for electrical, instrumentation, and control (EI&C).
Please download an evaluation if you are manually drafting any of these drawing types:
- LOOP drawings
- PLC/DCS IO wiring diagrams
- Terminal block diagrams
- Power distribution diagrams
- One/Single line diagrams
Take a look at the user manual, and you will see how easy it is to setup and configure. In summary, SHEETWorx can place block references (the graphics) at predefined locations within drawings and then update all text from worksheets data. It’s pretty awesome.
Drawing quality improvements is another benefit. There is no doubt controlling graphics and annotation will produce higher quality files.
Organizing data in a manner to produce drawings will inherently streamline design efforts sense everyone would be working with the same worksheet and drawing templates. In many situations, companies will opt to refine their drawing CAD standards.
Tapping into existing worksheets and drawings is possible and encouraged. There might be compelling reasons to adopt SHEETWorx templates. In any event, ECE offers highly skilled CAD resources who can help convert your existing or included files into ‘templates’. Click here to learn more about these services.
Drafting 2D drawings consumes countless project hours. Is your drawing quality in question because CAD resources are having to translate and transfer data from worksheets? Generally, engineers have already populated most drawing content within excel worksheets, so why not leverage SHEETWorx to produce drawings?
Simply add more data columns to existing EI&C worksheets and they can front end load SHEETWorx drawing production.
