Export Lighting to ComCheck
Be able to export lighting information to ComCheck for energy code compliance purposes.
This is completed for DM Electrical 8.3. Thank you for everyone who replied to my emails and sent sample projects.
This feature ended up working really well. You are able to do as much as possible in DM and then export to COMcheck. Any information you need in COMcheck that DM doesn't have, you can set using COMcheck. When you export from DM again, you don't lose changes you made in COMcheck.
It will export light fixture quantities (for the whole building or per room if you have them defined), room areas, and lighting group lengths and areas for exterior spaces. It also fills ina few of the light fixture fields.
I'm doing some investigation about exporting DM Electrical information to COMcheck. I need some feedback on which energy codes you use. If you are interested in the feature, filling out this survey would help me as I decide what to implement.
As a bonus, exporting to an NREC spreadsheet. Also if you could capture areas in Design Master and export that data as well to the energy code compliance document.

Along the same lines would be to export the lighting information into a Title 24 worksheet.
