Change breaker size in Panel Schedule based on Revit family type parameter.33 votes
If there was a way to have the export of one line diagrams go to drafting views instead of populating external dwgs?19 votes
Never say never. We are implementing one-line diagrams in drafting views for the next release.
This feature will be included in the next release. The connections will happen on the one-line diagram rather than in the “Panel Edit” command. It should accomplish the same goal.

have the branch circuits upsize wire based on the voltage drop or have a setting similar to what we have in AutoCAD.14 votes
I would like to export from Revit to import into ComCheck similar to the AutoCAD version of Design Master Electrical12 votes
Be able to swap circuits in Revit like you can using the "Move Circuit" command in DM Electrical for AutoCAD.12 votes
We need a way to link two family instances together so that when you update one of the instances it updates the other.8 votes
Be able to specify the fault at the upstream device, rather than at the current device. This feature would be useful when you want to specify the fault at the utility transformer but it is not included in the Revit model.6 votes
Adjust the wire size of feeders and branch circuits based on derating. This calculation needs to account for Ambient Temperature Correction Factors, Adjustment Factors and conduits on a roof (even though NEC 2017 eliminated this one). For example, there is an option in DME RT feeder sizing that asks about a double neutral. If we are acknowledging we need a double neutral, it should be understood the neutral is a current carrying conductor and should adjust the wire size and conduit size per the NEC.6 votes
Wire size derating will be included in the next release.
I do a lot of remodel work and it would be nice to be able to fill out a panel schedule with existing load data from a hard copy of an existing panel schedule without have to actually put the loads in the model and then circuiting them.4 votes
I won’t say never, but this feature would be quite difficult currently. We let Revit handle all the loads in the project. It really needs to be handled by Autodesk directly rather than by us.
Add "Panel Neutral" as a parameter to panels in Revit MEP.
Options for neutral would be:
This value would be a shared parameter for scheduling purposes. It would not be used in any calculations.3 votes
For 400A feeder:
(2) 3"C, 3-250kcmil AL, 250kcmil AL N, #1 AL G
(1) 4"C, 6-400kcmil AL, 2-400kcmil AL N, #1 AL G
Instead of each set take (1) conduit, would be good to get multiple set into a single conduit. This is mainly because installing (1) 4" conduit is cheaper than (2) 3" conduits.3 votes
Automation is a must! It's all about efficiency to allow more time to focus on aesthetics and functionality, the things that really matter to clients.
I would not see this as a reverse workflow. Many times I will place panels in the model prior to drafting a one-line.3 votes
At times I just want to push some changes I made, say to the wire ampacities, to our template from a project. However, I am always concerned that other settings my be incidentally changed since the import/export is all or nothing.
Providing a dialog to select what gets imported/exported or providing import/export in the individual dialogs would be helpful. I think the former would be preferred.3 votes
Provide an option for Room Names analogous to the "Conduit location" Option. Also consider other customization:
-Custom Room prefix - e.g. RM
-Option to include/exclude Name - e.g., RM 120
-Option to include/exclude Number - e.g., RM FIRE RISER
Room Names Location:
->Start of Circuit Description
->End of Circuit Description
Currently the room names always go at the end, just like OOTB Revit. Having the option to put the room at the start would allow for better scheduling for when the intent is for circuits to be organized by room, like so:
Assign a unique ID to each feeder in a project that can be scheduled in Revit and displayed in the AutoCAD one-line diagram.2 votes
Incorporate DC Arc Flash calculations. A lot of design work now has an element of renewable energy devices - solar, wind, etc. And many of those have battery 'peak shaving' capability. Being able to calculate both AC and DC arc flash given the electrical model will provide a one-stop-shop for arc flash. I would not rely so heavily on SKM. Thanks!2 votes
