Design Master Wish List

The current releases are DM Electrical RT 1.4, 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 2.0, 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.

  1. Display Single Equipment Instance in List for Each Equipment Callout

    The equipment list currently displays all equipment in a group. The list can be longer than necessary if there are multiple similar pieces of equipment in the list.

    Add a "Display one row per unique equipment callout" toggle to the "Insert Equipment List". If multiple pieces of equipment have the same callout, they would be collapsed to a single row.

    For the columns, if the information is same for all the equipment, the common information would be listed. If the information was different, the different values would somehow all be included in the column so that no information was lost.

  2. Load Type Schedule Designation

    Add a distribution schedule customization attribute that can be added to panel schedules as an additional column to show load type(s) that are connected to each circuit, preferably letter abbreviation designations for each load type. (Heating would be 'H', Lighting would be 'L', Motor loads 'M' etc...)

  3. Change default circuit callout

    Add an option for the default circuit callout inserted on the drawing when connecting a device to a panel. Currently it always lists the full circuit callout of panel name and circuit number (P-1).

  4. Per-Panel Wire Sizing

    Assign different wire sizing options to different panels. For example, have the minimum circuit breaker for most panels be 20A, but be able to specify 15A for some panels in the project.

  6. Homerun Wire Callout Option

    Add an option for homerun callouts to not display anything for #12 wires and to display tick marks and the full wire callout for anything else.

    Currently there are a few options that are close but nothing that has exactly these groupings of tick marks and wire callouts.

  7. Match Runout size to GRD Neck Size Automatically (without running CALC)

    Would you please consider an option to size the runout the same as the diffuser connection, without having to use the CALC function? That feature would be a big timesaver!

  13. Customize Parallel Run Labeling

    Add customization options for how multiple parallel runs are labeled for wires.

    DM currently labels multiple sets with the number of sets in parenthesis before the full wire callout:

    (3) 3-1/2"C, 4-600kcmil, 3/0G

    If you are interested this feature, indicate in the comments how you would like the multiple runs labeled.

  14. Net Occupiable Floor Area

    Most codes determine ventilation air based on "Net Occupiable Area" and not the actual room area. It would be nice to have a feature added that would allow for the net occupiable area be added at the room dialogue level (either by inputting the value or setting it as a percent of the room area) and be utilized in calculating the ventilation air.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  20. 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.
