  1. Circuit Comments

    Add comments to circuits in the Circuit Edit command. Transfer the comment value to the circuit and to the devices connected to the circuit.

    This feature would allow additional information from a circuit to be scheduled on the devices. It would be similar to how DM currently pushes the breaker size to from the circuit to the device that can then be used in equipment schedules.

  2. Calculate feeder voltage drop base upon 80% of upstream breaker capacity

    Add a line under voltage drop in the project options that says “Calculate feeder voltage drop base upon 80% of upstream breaker capacity”? In big warehouses we often have main lug only panels that the bussing is rated for more than the breaker feeding it because we need to increase the wire size for voltage drop. The panelboard needs to be larger so the increased wire size for voltage drop will fit the lugs of the panelboard.

  3. Calculate Whole Project on Workshared Project

    On large workshared projects, it's virtually impossible to find a single time in a 24-hour window where no one is working on the electrical model. This means someone always has ownership of something, and this prevents us from calculating the whole project. It would be nice if the tool could work around checked out elements and just make a note of which elements were not updated. Right now, we get errors about other users having ownership, and then all the changes appear to be rolled back.

  4. Update Electrical One-line Diagram symbols

    Up-date Electrical One-line Diagram to show Existing, Demo, New, and Future out of the box. My suggestion is listed below but I am open to other suggestions.

    • Existing - gray thin solid lines
    • Demo - black dashed medium lines
    • New - black solid medium lines
    • Future - gray solid medium lines

  5. voltage drop

    Would like to have the ability at instance edit or circuit edit to be able to select load or 80% of breaker for the calculation in lieu of only having overall project level option.

  6. Make Link > Select from Model a separate button

    When linking many items on large projects, the Link window can begin to slow down dramatically since it loads all the equipment in the project into the tree. It would be nice if we could use the Select from Model option without having to load the rest of the Link dialog box.

  7. Make bulk changes to multiple circuits in Circuit Edit

    Allow for multiple selections of circuits in the circuit edit windows to allow for changes to multiple circuits at one time. (This is very useful for existing circuits when we need to set wire and conduit size as "Existing")

  8. Batch link

    Assign/Change link of multiple detail items based on matching panel name of 3D equipment. That way standard risers for certain building types can be reused more easily

  9. Relink Detail Items copied to a new drafting view

    Our risers are so large that we typically use multiple drafting views for each substation. When loads get refed from one substation to another, I need to cut and paste the transformers, the disconnects, and the panels to the second drafting view, then link all of them all over again. It would be nice if there was a re-link button I could use, where I just select all the items I have pasted then run the tool to re-link them all in one go.

  11. Add Equipment Items to Fault Current and Voltage Drop schedules.

    Add mechanical and elevator equipment to the fault current calculations. Similar to DM Electrical CAD. We get the requirement for 5kA SCCR equipment from mechanical and elevator and we need to know what those values are.

  12. reset

    Would like it if we had the ability to reset all items we have overridden, even better if we could do it by category like wire size, breaker

  13. Additional voltage drop power factor options

    Ability to pick .9 and .95 for power factor in options for voltage drop calculations in addition to the two we have, .85 or Revit.

  14. Revit schedule for breaker trip settings

    Add shared parameters for breaker type, MFG, settings so a schedule can be created that show the settings for each breaker that does not have fixed settings.

  15. More flexible options for including room names in circuit descriptions

    A few more options for circuit name based on space name please
    • Don’t include space name
    • Include space name and number
    • Include space name

  16. Upsize wire based on circuit length

    Upsize the wire based on voltage and length. Example is we often have a note to use #10's for 120V 20A circuit greater than 100ft in length and 277V 210A circuit greater than 150ft in length.

  17. Auto update the feeder lengths on single line

    when we move a panel/equipment, the feeders should not break, they should change their lengths as we move the panel connected to it, so that we don't have to refeed the whole thing again

  18. Edit Multiple - Instance Edit

    Enable editing multiple instances with the Instance Edit functionality, similar to Edit Multiple in AutoCAD.

    Use case: You have a line of 10 motors and the mechanical designer decides that they need to bump up 5 hp.

    Current workflow: Instance edit one at a time or delete and start from scratch.

    Desired workflow: Multiple Instance Edit to change MCA and MOCP.

  19. Size Motor Disconnect using NEC 430.110

    Add a feature to size and label motor disconnects.

    NEC 430.110 calls for 115% of the full-load current rating of the motor.

    We could also include an option to require the disconnect to be at least as large of the OCPD rating of the circuit.

    Also an option for a specific size selected by the user.

    And an option for a specific custom value if you want to indicate something such as "With unit" or "Not required".

    Finally, a list of acceptable sizes to use for the disconnect. A default list of standard sizes would be included but you could…
