* G-Electrical Trial before release
Posted by Cedric Desbordes on 2019-06-13 07:20

Dear ,

Please download it from this link https://www.graebert.com/getgelectricalfordraftsight

After install, you will be able to activate 30 days free trial. This plugin is not released yet in our e-store but will be released before 30 days so you will be able to purchase it after your trial will expire from https://www.graebert.com/pluginsfrodraftsight.

Some important things to know for your trial:

a) DraftSight 2017 SP2 Professional or Enterprise is required (doesn't work with the free version because we need a side palette)

b) The plugin will add side palettes and ribbon tabs specific to the plugin. The most important thing to understand is that this software relies on both geometries (as usual in DraftSight) AND a database (for the components and electrical project). In order to connect both, it is required to start from the ribbon tab "GE Start" where you can start a new drawing or open an existing project. If you use DraftSight's traditional new or open commands you won't be able to use the electrical CAD features from G-Electrical.
If you go to GE Start ribbon and choose Open, it will open by default a folder where you can find some project samples to play with. If you start a new project you will be invited first to select the standards you want to use.

c) In GE View you will find buttons to show/hide the main palettes. For a better understanding, you can try this with the existing samples. You will, for example, see the components, cables or wires libraries as side palettes (by default on the left) and the project or pages palettes (by default on the right). Finally, you will find in GE Start and GE Modify most of the features you need. GE Manage includes some more tools for customization and settings.

The price of the G-Electrical plugin will be 129€/$ per year and per user - For that price, you are limited to 40 pages per project. If you need more you can contact us and learn about QC Ecad the full version developed by our partner SKA.
