ArchiCAD, Electrical, Tip of the Day

When you first install the Cadimage Electrical tool, wall plate and component symbols that you place in the project will display a label. For wall plates, the label shows the product code and a code for the fixing height. For components, only the fixing height is displayed. The label forms an integral part of the 2D symbol, however you can remove the label for any view.
