Engineering Drawing Software Integrations

D-Tools System Integrator’s data-driven process leverages leading design applications – Microsoft Visio and Autodesk AutoCAD – to easily create detailed engineering drawings, which are tied directly to project proposals.

Effectively communication with clients and teams, and eliminate scope creep and re-work by clearly and completely documenting system designs.

 

Data-Driven Technical Drawings - Integrated

Quickly and easily generate detailed drawings with the industry-leading low voltage design software solution. Simply drag and drop products from your catalog or project file to your drawing surface. D-Tools SI’s plug-in to Visio and AutoCAD ensures that your bill of materials and drawings are always in sync, allowing the capability to draw first.

Drive all project documentation through an integrated product library. Product information is configured with accurate, detailed information, including descriptions, specifications, inputs/outputs, images (as well as dealer-specific pricing) – dramatically reducing time and cost, as well as errors and omissions during the design phase.

Clearly communicate to installers where the equipment will be placed in a room or building. When importing a .dwg file into Visio, simply place equipment from the D-Tools project file onto the drawing surface. You can also import AutoCAD files into Visio and layer your equipment over the plan view, or create a plan view drawing natively in Visio.
