I'm an electronic & electrical engineering student in first year of university. I have had to use a few core programs as part of my course for programming and simulation software. However I came across AutoCAD Electrical and struggling to understand the use of the application.
It being an electrical CAD software, I assumed that I'd be able to carry out similar tasks as Micro-Cap (which I use to analyse AC, DC circuits) or Proteus (which I use to simulate code for PIC micro-controllers). However I've yet to find any tutorial that says that AutoCAD Elec does any of those.
If not, then I would like to know the essential point of it? If drawings is the main use of it, can't I just continue using Visio, which I had to map a fuse-box design for a side project. It is pretty fiddly on Visio, but if all AutoCAD Elec is, is a drawing tool, in what way would it excel Visio for the kind of drawings I need (all car related: looms, fuse-boxes, motors)?
