Autodesk Joins Rockwell Automation Program to Accelerate Design Processes for Electrical Control Designers

Autodesk, Inc. (San Rafael, Calif.) is now part of the Rockwell Automation Encompass Partner program. The partnership enables customers of Rockwell Automation (Milwaukee, Wis.), who utilize the Allen-Bradley of products to use AutoCAD Electrical software, an AutoCAD-based electrical controls design software, interoperable with Autodesk’s other design applications.

AutoCAD Electrical automates many tasks for electrical controls designers and provides a path for designers who use AutoCAD to design control systems or generate reports, such as a bills of material, by hand. AutoCAD Electrical contains libraries of Rockwell Automation components that let users specify Allen-Bradley product content directly from the included libraries into a design. This process automatically inserts the correct part number and product information into the bills of material.
