  • Script error
    Yusuf Butanda | March 28, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Halo Admin I have installed ecodial plugins on my machine and its working pretty well. However, when I try to tap on the calculate command and sign in online. It brings a script error. and later displays that my browser is not supported(outdated.) I have three browsers in their latest versions. i.e. chrome, Firefox, and explorer. Please I need your advise on this, what could be the problem and how can I solve it?

    Dear Yusuf , Its required to have Iinternet explore 9 and above to register for the Application. I would request you to download the latest version of the internet explorer and try to register for the application.This should resolve the issue you are facing. Thank you.

    Ahmed Elmahdy | March 25, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    it is installed successfully and the Schneider ribbon exists in AutoCAD but when I click new to create a new project nothing happens. any advice ?

    Nagendra Rao (Publisher) | March 28, 2017

    Dear Ahmed, Looks like the program did not load. Please restart AutoCAD and see if you get a message to load the Plugin. if not, you can manually load the Plugin by typing command "netload" . The program will be located in the following directory (Replace user name by your log-in name) "C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Roaming\Autodesk\ApplicationPlugins\SchneiderElectric.bundle\Contents\Ecodial Plugin\2016\SchneiderElectric.EAP.Plugin.dll " if you are using AutoCAD 2016, otherwise, you have to select the folder appropriately and load the same program. Hope this helps.

    This was exactly the tool I was looking for. An addon that will help me perform sizing and let me save the results. Design and sizing in one place.

    Dear Sir, Thank you for downloading the Ecodial Plugin. This problem may be specific to windows ultimate and looks like a service installed during the Plugin installation failed to start. I would suggest the following a) Please see if the installation was complete and the Plugin was installed and appears while you open AutoCAD If not installed please try the following: a) Run the installer using the option "Run as administrator" b) Check .net framework, we recommend .net 4.5.2. Please install manually before you install the ecodial Plugin. Please see if the above solution works. Thanx

  • Great calculation tool
    Arko Seal | December 15, 2016 Verified Download (What's this?)

    its a very good tool with some great features like Easy draw which is really helpful to draw SLD network in no time. Also its provides some good reporting features and flexibility to take the calculation to more detail level in other tools like Ecodial offline

  • Free and usless
    Shay Friedman | February 24, 2016 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Nothing if compared to stand alone application.Doesn't support North American standards.Doesn't work with autocad directly, have to use prefilled excel files...

    Nagendra Rao (Publisher) | February 26, 2016

    Dear Shay Friedman Thank you for the response. As mentioned in the description of the plugin, the calculations are in compliance with IEC / CENELEC Standards and starts with capturing / importing the load list which is the first step in creating a single line diagram. We are evolving the plugins and you will see more and more features added.

  • It doesn't work
    Ashraf Ibrahim | December 17, 2015

    It doesn't work and I get the below message: Command: ECODIAL Open new drawing.

    Nagendra Rao (Publisher) | December 20, 2015

    Dear Ashraf Ibrahim, We have seen this behavior while using different templates in AutoCAD rather than using AutoCAD standard templates. Could you please check if the same behavior exists with standard AutoCAD template ?. The Plugin is dedicated to AutoCAD basic users and AutoCAD Electrical only.

  • Nice tool
    Gangadhar Talawar | December 15, 2015 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Easy to use interface and good one, it took no time to generate the load list and get the design report in DWG format.
