Electrical Layout Help 3-way, 4-way switches
Thanks for the spline tip.. I'll have to try that. I agree that
Chief's automatic Connect tool lacks a little professional appeal.
If only we were able to adjust and reverse the degree of the arc...
that would be great!
Yep that will happen if you use the Chief wires. .......... I
figured it out. I have given up on Chiefs wiring tool all together.
is how I place electrical symbols and do the wiring.
I have loaded up the my-electircal part of the library with the most
items I use, that is, switches, outlets, lights, smoke detcors, etc.
really handy having them all in one place. I can quickly select and
the items from it onto the plan. For the wiring I have set up a
the appoperate line type and color. With that layer active I use the
command with the unrestricted feature. It takes about 2 or 3 points
line. The beauty of the spline is you can make the line conform to
needs and not be crossing over walls and everything else or chaning
switch. Using the spline for the wires goes pretty fast and gives
smarter looking plan (in my opinion).
