Most products available in the D-Tools Product Library have .jpg images associated with them that can be used for line diagrams, as well as tied to project estimates and proposals. You can also add your own .jpg images to the products in your catalog. Simply drag and drop products from your project file onto the drawing surface.
Plan view drawings are a great way to 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.
Rack elevations enables your customers to see what the finished system will look like from a point of view perspective. This is particularly useful for rack drawings and showcasing higher-end systems with custom cabinetry, or communicating how the system will fit into a particular room.
Schematics are visual representations of the engineered system and allows you to virtually “connect” the system before you even order any actual product. This is the drawing that the installers will use to ensure that all the components are correctly connected, and gives the customer confidence that the system will work as promised. From this drawing, detailed installation reports can be generated for the entire project, such as wire schedules, wire checklists, and wire labels.
