AutoCAD Electrical Drawing List Report

AutoCAD Electrical Drawing List Report

In AutoCAD Electrical it is possible to create many different reports analyzing the data in your drawing project such as Bill of Materials and Wire To/From lists. These reports can be placed directly onto a drawing and/or exported to an external application such as Mircosoft Excel.

One of the frequently overlooked reports is the ‘Drawing List’ report. Large projects in particular, where many drawings are required, it is good practice to compile a drawing list, in AutoCAD or other similar products this can be a painstaking and manual task to create and maintain during the design lifecycle of the project. AutoCAD Electrical offers an automated tool which creates and updates this list automatically at the click of a button.

To create a drawing list open an AutoCAD Electrical Project in the project manager, right click on the project and select ‘Drawing List Report’.

Create a Drawing List Report

Select ‘New Report’ and choose the drawing you want to include in the Drawing List, in my case I’m going to ‘Do All’.

This will open the Report Generator.
