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. 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.

  2. Add "Panel Neutral" in Revit MEP

    Add "Panel Neutral" as a parameter to panels in Revit MEP.

    Options for neutral would be:

    50%
    
    100%
    133%
    200%
    None

    This value would be a shared parameter for scheduling purposes. It would not be used in any calculations.

  3. 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:

  4. 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

  5. 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.

  6. 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.
