2D Electrical Schematic, P&ID, Pneumatic, & Hydraulic

Aaron_MagninAaron_Magnin Member, Onshape Employees Posts: 114
Hey everyone, just wanted to make sure that you're aware of a new partner product available in the app store: Radica Electra . This tool will allow for the creation of those 2D electrical schematics, P&ID, and more. It's easy to use thanks to drag & drop functionality, auto-wiring, and auto-numbering.

If you want to learn more about it, check out the demo or see the Radica website.

Let me know if you have question, and I look forward to contributing more to this forum!

    Great.  Just gave it a try but I don't see a single electrical receptacle.
    Where are they hiding?  Searched for NEMA and nothing found either. 
    I would love to switch over from draw.io

    @AuroraRon

    ...first, sorry about the slow reply. I've adjusted my notification settings so you don't have to wait this long for my next reply!

    That said, I searched for a receptacle but was also unable to find anything. Being a cloud tool, they should be able to add a new symbol quickly, but they need to be made aware of this request. Did you use the button to request a new symbol?

    That said, could it also just be a language mismatch? When you search for "socket" did you find what you wanted?

    Thanks for the reply.

    I would expect basic symbols would be already there and not something that has to be requested.

    We will continue to use existing free software and check back in the future to see if there is any significant change in this to justify the seemingly high cost.

    Sorry, but did you see that portion at the bottom.

    "That said, could it also just be a language mismatch? When you search for "socket" did you find what you wanted?"

    Yes, I did search for sockets and receptacle I don't see any symbol like you see below.

    Thanks for that! I'm going to let their dev team know...

    Appreciate your time, and thanks for checking it out. If changes are made, I'll let you know.

    @AuroraRon I heard back from the Radica team...a great turn around and response:

    "We do have JIC & IEC symbol sets, however unfortunately we do not have assets of NEMA for now but please rest assured that we’ll be working on having it in Electra Cloud. Kindly note that we’ll require some time to complete this task."

    They're working to provide symbols of the receptacle shown by you, which could take a few business days.
