custom light symbol

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to simply tell Chief Architect a pline (2'x4' rectangle) that it should be recognized as an electrical lighting object so that it will connect electrical runs?  I need to demonstrate a basic lighting plan in a large open barn where they will be using 2'x4' hanging high-bay LED's.  I did find the "short double recessed tube lighting" that will work for the symbol, and can edit that object, but might want to create a 12" diameter high-output LED basic symbol too.

 

To clarify my question.  Is it possible to draw a basic shape, perform a special conversion, and assign it as an electrical object?

Yes absolutely.  Just convert to symbol and choose Electrical - Show Advanced Options and you can make anything a Electrical - Light and then add Light Data if you like.

Chopsaw, thank you.  I was looking for the convert to symbol button, but it was not available until I converted my basic cad to a plinesolid, then to symbol.  Excellent, I appreciate it.

Yes it will need to be a 3D item.
