Customers have been really surprised with how extensive this block library is.

SimpleCAD announced today that it is preparing many of their industrial block libraries for the new AutoCAD® 2013 release expected to arrive in spring 2012.

This week SimpleCAD completed 2013 testing on one of their flagship products called the CAD-SYM library. The block library is comprised of Electrical, Hydraulic and Pneumatic control systems.

SImpleCAD's President Erik Zetterberg says " This Fluid Power and Electrical Symbol library is one of our more popular libraries. Customers have been really surprised with how extensive this block library is."

Included with the electrical block collection is an integrated pull-down menu within AutoCAD® comprising of various block libraries all which are now compatible with AutoCAD® 2013.

Each symbol is accurately drawn on Layer 0 so that current layer standards can be implemented. Both Imperial (US) and Metric are also provided with each library.

  •     Electrical ANSI Y32.2 & IEC 617 - contains symbols including bells, buzzers, horns, signal lights, capacitors, resistors, disconnects, fuses and circuit breakers.
  •     Hydraulic - includes solenoids, actuators, filters, heat exchangers, relief valves, cylinders, pumps, motors, check valves and other regulating valves.
  •     Pneumatic - ships with valve outlines, solenoids, actuators, fixed and variable flow controls and over 100 center spool configurations.
  •     Steel Shapes - predrawn W,S,C,MC, H and L shapes with appropriate AISI, AISC or ANSI standards.

Combined Electrical and Fluid Power libraries consists of over 2750 symbols. In addition, other combined libraries include Pneumatic and Hydraulic and contain over 1450 blocks. A Steel Shape library with roughly 1050 is also available.
