Draw wires

There are two types of wires, single wires (Command wire type) and multiple wires (Power type). These two types of wire are inserted with different commands.




Each wire requires a wire style. The number of wire styles is infinite, you can create as many wire styles as you want. These are managed in the Wire style management. Wire styles are specific to the electrical project.

The wires allow you to connect different equipment, they can be numbered and can represent cable cores.
