Pattern Search quickly finds fixtures and other devices

Pattern search allows you to quickly find fixtures and other devices that are marked on the drawing with symbols. You pick one of the symbols then select the drawings and areas you want to search. The results are quickly reviewed in a grid. You can even refine the search based on smaller symbols in or near the original pattern.

Extensions

Extension supports conduit runs with multiple wires and drops

A simple extension allows entry of the number of wires, the number of drops and the drop length. The total wire length is the digitized length plus the total drop length all multiplied by the number of wires.

Extension allows wire runs with individual riser lengths

For wire runs with differing drop lengths, the Riser extension can be used. This allows you to enter the drop length for each point. The lengths are displayed on the drawing. The variable LenWithRisers gives the total of the digitized length plus the riser lengths.

Testimonials

Testimonial from Ken Gordon, Jamerson & Bauwens Electrical Contractors, Inc., Illinois

“I’m quite impressed with how well your Pattern Search works – it’s been great at finding symbols buried under other symbols / lines / junk, faster than I can on a full-size drawing with a magnifying glass”
