have the branch circuits upsize wire based on the voltage drop or have a setting similar to what we have in AutoCAD.14 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
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
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
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#12G1 vote
