For many of us their always seems to come a time to where we do not want to show wire numbers but still need to report wire information. Wire layers now have a “no wire numbering” option in AutoCAD Electrical 2010. These wires behave normally for inserting, breaking, and scooting components, and show up in the Wire From/To report.

The Insert Wire Numbers command follows these rules:

  • If all wires in the network are on layers set “No” for Wire Numbering, no new wire number is inserted.
  • If any wire in the network is on a layer set “Yes” for Wire Numbering, the existing non-fixed wire number is updated or a new wire number is inserted.
  • If a wire network already has a non-fixed wire number, it is updated regardless of the Wire Numbering setting. Use the Delete Wire Numbers command to remove the wire number.

Working with PLCs Part Three Address Information for Wire Numbers

Part Three working with PLC’s talks about using the PLC address information for our wire numbers. This tool inserts wire numbers based upon the I/O address that each PLC connected wire touches. Wire numbers go in as FIXED which means that they do not change if a wire number retag is run later on.

Wire Tags AutoCAD Electrical

When configuring your AutoCAD Electrical one area that can be confusing is setting up your wire tag information so that all your wire numbers read the way you want them too. First thing first is where do we configure your wire tags. This can be accomplished in two areas the first being under the properties for a given project or you can do this by a sheet by sheet basis when selecting the drawing properties. Just remember the %N must always be part of the wire format string. Below is a little cheat sheet to help better understand what parameters you have to work with.

Changing All Wire Numbers to Fixed

Welcome Sparky’s,

If you currently own AutoCAD Electrical today or thinking about making the move to AutoCAD Electrical you can now look forward to tips and tricks being added to our Incat Cad Geek Blog Site. I look forward to sharing my knowledge with you. If your looking for information about the product please let us know and we will be more than happy to get the answers your looking for. Now lets look at our first topic.

I have a few customers that like to mark all their wire numbers as “Fixed” after the project has been built. This way if and when any design changes come in the future, they don’t accidentally forget. This would be a bad thing since the machine is built and already has wire numbers on it in the field. This is a pretty easy task.


1. Click on the “Project” pull down menu then click on “Project Wide Utilities”.
2. In the “Wire Numbers” area of the dialog box select “Set all wire numbers to fixed”.
3. Click “OK”
4. Select the “Project” radio button.
5. Click “Do All”
6. Click “OK”
Watch AutoCAD Electrical do your work for you. This software is a must for anyone doing Electrical designs.
