Electrotechnik Announces Safegrid V6.1 with Many New Drawing Features
05/23/2022

The SafeGrid grid editor has been built to function exactly like AutoCAD with the new Version 6.1 release.

Online PR News – 23-May-2022 – Sydney – SafeGrid is software for multilayer grounding (Earthing) and lightning protection systems design.

SafeGrid can model custom earth grids of any size or shape, including importing from an AutoCAD file.

With the new Version 6.1 release, the team has built the SafeGrid grid editor to function just like AutoCAD.

New features include:

1) New Build Grid with 19 CAD drawing functions. The new drawing functions allow the user to add a segment, a rectangle, a polygon, and move and copy segments. To watch a video of how to use the drawing functions, visit https://youtu.be/hkarREi6RaQ.

2) Background segments that are not used for calculations. New Build Grid can set segments as the background, which will not be used for calculations but displayed in the plots for reference.

3) Tags for segments to include or exclude groups from calculations. Custom tags can be created and assigned to segments. By specifying the property of tags, the user can quickly include or exclude groups of segments from the calculations.

4) Snap drawing tools - when adding, editing or moving segments, the new snap tools can be used at endpoints, midpoints, intersections and forcing a connection. The Ortho mode restricts cursor movement in the vertical and horizontal directions.

5) grid import. Assign conductor types to draw layers. Import circles and arc entities.
Automatic overlapping segments check. Overlapping segments (conductors) generally cause errors in the calculations, but they can be easily avoided now.

6) Export grid as DXF file. Export earthing grid is drawn in the Build Grid as DXF file in which "background" and tag names are exported as layer names. The exported DXF file is compatible with most CAD software.
