AutoCAD Electrical for Electrical and Automation Engineers | Free Autocad course download


AutoCAD Electrical has always been a great tool for engineers and designers to do professional work. It is the most popular software for designing and developing professional electrical drawings, PLC diagrams, control and power circuits, and mechanical drawings in any industry.

In this comprehensive course, you will learn all about the AutoCAD Electrical toolset and toolbar options that will help you design PLC modules, panels, control cabinets, wiring diagrams, and much more. We will learn how to create accurate and standard electrical schematics and drawings step by step.

Forough Jahangard is a professional electrical engineer with years of experience in both industry and academia. He will show you how to design ladder diagrams, wiring, develop custom symbols and add annotations to your drawing. You will learn how to create title blocks and run reports in a professional manner. PLC symbols and creating automatic ladder diagrams is one of the most useful features of AutoCAD electrical that you will have the opportunity to master in this course.
