Here are a few of the tricks used by experienced connectCAD users that can really speed up your drawing:
2D Reshape tool
The Vectorworks Reshape tool can move the vertices of several selected Circuits at once. This allows us to reshape a whole bunch of circuits in one go.
A really neat trick that can save you hours is to Duplicate whole looms of circuits and then use Reshape to place them on different sockets. SO instead of drawing a bunch of circuits one at a time you do the work in bulk.
Align/distribute is great for adjusting the spacing of items. For example, you want to connect jackfields to the inputs of a set of DA’s:
Drag last jack down opp. last DA
Select the jacks
Distribute Spacing vertically
Now your jacks are spaced opposite your DA’s
Simple,fast and accurate.
