I offer you a quick article on a new feature in AutoCAD Electrical 2008. ACADe has great tools to help you travel from page to page in your project. You may move one page at a time or surf, by searching specific attribute (Component Tag, Catalog Number and Wires Number), and find a schematic or panel component. For this tool to work we had the option to right clicking on a specific component or activating the surfer tool by selecting the icon or drop down menu and type what we were looking for.
Now in 2008, you can do all these plus search in the BOM inserted in a drawing created by ACADe. The steps are simple please read the following:
1. Activate the surfer tool
2. Browse in your BOM and select the appropriate text
3. Then the surf box will appeared as followed
4. Select the component then “Go To”
Keep in mind, the selection that you do will grab more then the tags you selected.
