  • For Electrical Designer Is there any learning video available?

  • In reply to Rajesh Das:

    Hello Rajesh,

    I am in the process of updating the AECOsim Building Designer Electrical courses, including videos.

    There are three updated courses in this Learning Path that include videos:

    Fundamentals for Electrical Designers using AECOsim Building Designer

    They are: Concepts and Design File Setup, Symbol Placement and Symbol Properties and Symbol Subtypes

    There are two older courses, AECOsim Building Designer Electrical Designer and AECOsim Building Designer Electrical - Creating Design Documentation that have no videos but have a download for the workbook. The three new videos cover the first half or so of the older workbooks and are updated to SELECTseries 6 version.

    These courses utilize the Dataset_US electrical symbol library ANSI Y32.9-1972. A different symbol library, BS EN60617 / BS 1635, is used for the  Dataset_GB and Dataset_UK datasets. All the tools work the same.

    I hope to have three other updates posted by the end of 2016 and  the last two updated by the end of January 2017. So keep an eye out for those.
