Sirine posted a topic in Tutorials & Tips'n'TricksI recently learned some tricks on drawing and exporting an electronic system diagram, which has been really helpful in saving my time. So I thought it'd be nice to share with you guys. I did my drawing on ZWCAD, as I recently switched from AutoCAD to it for a lower cost. If you also use ZWCAD, feel free to comment below. Tip 1 - Use Block Attribute to create a customized component library for easy reuse Step 1. Start the Tool Palette through [Tools] and click [Tool Palette Window] or use the shortcut command [Ctrl+3] on the menu bar. Step 2. Select the required component block on the current drawing, then hold down the left mouse button, drag it to the tool palette and release it. After that, the block will be added to the Tool Palette. Tip 2 - Use ZWCAD Smart Plot to output multiple electronic diagrams all at once Step 1. Open the drawing to be printed, click [File] in the toolbar, and then click [Smart Batch Plot]. Step 2. Select the printing device and choose a [Frame Style] in the pop-up dialog box. Step 3. Click [Select batch drawings], and select the drawings to be printed. Step 4. Click [Highlight], and finally click [Plot].
