    When drawing multi-phase wires, AutoCAD Electrical only allows you to choose one wire type for the multi-phase wire connections. You may however wish for three phase wire connections to be drawn in the IEC standard of brown, black and grey coloured wires and have the numbering of the wires to the convention of #L1, #L2 and #L3. This can of course be done in a variety of methods.

    The key to any company standard is to define the standards in the title block template (*.DWT) as this will become available for all new drawings but you can also do this retrospectively within a current drawing and/or project.
