  • Current Shape update
  • What’s missing?
  • System development
    • unitary systems
    • airside systems
    • waterside systems
multi device shape selector
Multi Device Shape Selector
  • One shape geometry may represent many different device / part numbers
    • device types
    • assigned filters
    • user defined device types
    • user defined devices
device types and filters
Device Types and Filters
  • Devices defined by vendor and part number
  • Filters vary by device
  • Device list based on Trane Estimator
user defined devices
User Defined Devices

Adding user defined devices

user defined devices1
User Defined Devices
  • Add/Edit Device
    • all fields are required
user defined devices2
User Defined Devices

Custom examples available in the device list

Unique mark for custom devices

auto cable numbering
Auto Cable Numbering
  • Assign and manage cabling information between:
    • end device flow shapes
    • controller details
    • end device detail drawing pages (future)
auto cable numbering1
Auto Cable Numbering
  • Cabling Information includes:
    • cable wire colors
    • four digit cable number
    • cable description (end device tag + description)
    • end device detail reference
    • cable type reference
auto cable numbering2
Auto Cable Numbering
  • Connect to Controller dialog box:
    • list only controller I/O points appropriate to selected end device
    • highlight 1st open or already connected I/O point
    • zone sensor support
    • allow for selection of BO Form C contact type (NO/NC)
auto cable numbering3
Auto Cable Numbering
  • Maintenance functions
    • connections
    • deleting end device or controller
  • Validation enhancement
    • unconnected devices
    • more distinct descriptions (BOM => Vendor / Part No.)
controller detail pages
Controller Detail Pages
  • Automatically generated based on Riser selections
autocad vs graphics realities
AutoCAD vs. GraphICS Realities
  • GraphICS productivity enhancements
  • GraphICS learning curve
  • Existing AutoCAD libraries
  • Converting AutoCAD blocks to GraphICS shapes
  • Viewing & printing AutoCAD drawings
autocad with graphics
AutoCAD with GraphICS
  • AutoCAD release
  • Good and bad drafting practices
    • model vs. layout space
    • layers
    • space junk
    • sizing
  • Problem origination
  • Importing AutoCAD to GraphICS
  • Exporting GraphICS to AutoCAD
importing autocad to graphics
Importing AutoCAD to GraphICS
  • GraphICS can import .DWG drawings
  • GraphICS is NOT a .DWG editing tool
  • Complex .DWG’s impact GraphICS efficiencies
  • One current release copy of AutoCAD may be necessary
exporting graphics to autocad
Exporting GraphICS to AutoCAD
  • AutoCAD Export three step process
frequently asked autocad questions
Frequently Asked AutoCAD Questions
  • When is it appropriate to use ACAD instead of GraphICS?
  • Why don’t more BU’s utilize GraphICS instead of ACAD?
what s coming in 2003
