Design Master Wish List

The current releases are DM Electrical RT 2.0, DM Electrical 8.6, DM HVAC 7.3, and DM Plumbing 4.1. We are not adding new features to these releases.

The next releases will be DM Electrical RT 2.1, DM Electrical 8.7, DM HVAC 7.4, and DM Plumbing 4.2 We are actively working on these release and using this wishlist to guide which features we implement. Features marked as "Planned" will be available in these releases.

  3. printing of settings

    It would be helpful to have a way of printing out the design master settings for a project to Q.C. and check. example would be wire sizes. it would also be nice to be able to save this to back check when something looks off or to compare with other projects.

  4. Edit Multiple - Instance Edit

    Enable editing multiple instances with the Instance Edit functionality, similar to Edit Multiple in AutoCAD.

    Use case: You have a line of 10 motors and the mechanical designer decides that they need to bump up 5 hp.

    Current workflow: Instance edit one at a time or delete and start from scratch.

    Desired workflow: Multiple Instance Edit to change MCA and MOCP.

  6. Size Motor Disconnect using NEC 430.110

    Add a feature to size and label motor disconnects.

    NEC 430.110 calls for 115% of the full-load current rating of the motor.

    We could also include an option to require the disconnect to be at least as large of the OCPD rating of the circuit.

    Also an option for a specific size selected by the user.

    And an option for a specific custom value if you want to indicate something such as "With unit" or "Not required".

    Finally, a list of acceptable sizes to use for the disconnect. A default list of standard sizes would be included but you could…

  8. Automatically generate one-line diagram in Revit based on distribution system.

    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.

  14. Individual Customization Settings Import/Export

    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.

  15. Ability to add multiple set of conductor in a single conduit

    Example:
    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.

  16. DC arc flash

    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!

  18. Room Names in Circuit Description

    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:

  19. Be able to create a panel schedule for existing loads not in model

    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.

  20. Include "1" before single ground and neutral wires

    Add an option to include a "1" in the wire callout before single ground and neutral wires. Currently the wire size is listed with no count before it.

    Current wire callout:
    1/2"C, 1#12, #12N, #12G

    New wire callout:
    1/2"C, 1#12, 1#12N, 1#12G
