Design Master Wish List

The current releases are DM Electrical RT 1.3, DM Electrical 8.5, 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 1.4, DM Electrical 8.6, 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. Some features you see marked as “complete” will not be available until these releases are finished.

  1. 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:

  2. Separate column in the feeder schedule for the service grounding electrode conductor.

    The service ground does not get installed in the conduit with the service entrance conductors, so why is it shown just like all the other feeders where the equipment grounding conductor is installed with the feeder conductors. If you want the feature to show the GEC size, show it in a different column and show the feeder with no ground listed with the feeder conductors so its clear it is not in the conduit.

  3. Upsize wire of branch circuits based on voltage drop

    have the branch circuits upsize wire based on the voltage drop or have a setting similar to what we have in AutoCAD.

  4. Unique ID for each feeder in the project

    Assign a unique ID to each feeder in a project that can be scheduled in Revit and displayed in the AutoCAD one-line diagram.

  5. Specify fault at upstream device

    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. Spaces in Feeder Callouts

    Be able to display feeder callouts with spaces after commas, instead of having all the wire sizes right next to each other.

    Current Callout:
    2''C,2#3/0,#3/0N,#6G

    Desired Callout:
    2''C, 2#3/0, #3/0N, #6G

  7. Add "Clear Circuit" Button Back to "Circuiting" Dialog Box

    Add the "Clear Circuit" command back to the "Circuiting" dialog box. This button will set all the breaker and branch circuit sizing options back to "Size Automatically", set all the fixed loads to "0", and set the circuit descriptions to be blank.

  8. Manufacturer Name field included within Notes Settings of distribution equipment

    It would be helpful when creating distribution equipment lists if there was an option for the manufacturer's name. Currently we have to use an unused Note key, rename the label for that key and then remember which Notes Setting corresponds to the list entry.

  9. Automatically add Diffuser Arrows for 1W, 2W, 3W & 4W

    In the diffuser definition dialog box, designate whether it is a 1W, 2W, 3W or 4W diffuser, then attach that number of arrows. When placing the diffuser, allow the user to rotate the diffuser to align the appropriate air flow direction.

  11. Print Load Calculations: Have a Select All/Unselect All checkbox

    When printing load calculations, have a Select All/Unselect All check box. It's a bit tedious to do manually.

  12. Add a hatch pattern to room definitions

    When defining rooms, it is often difficult to determine which rooms have been defined and which have not, if an area gets surrounded. Adding a hatch pattern on its own layer would make it much easier to determine if you've included all room definition areas.

  13. 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

  14. Export Equipment List to Excel

    Export a list of equipment connections and information to a file that can be opened and viewed in Excel. The file would be for post-processing only. Any changes to the equipment would still be made using the other DM commands.

  15. Add command to match diffuser callout and location; just like you have for light fixtures.

    It would be nice to at least have the command to match diffuser callout location.

  16. Reset panel "Fixed Loads".

    Often, I need to "start over" on a panel that I've assigned fixed loads. It would be handy to have a button that would clear every fixed load on the panel. Or even be able to select several circuits and clear those circuit's fixed loads.

  18. Import single piece of equipment

    Currently, the "Import Equipment from Another Project" command imports all the equipment. Update that function to allow you to choose specific pieces of equipment to import.
