Revit MEP Comparison: Multi-Section Panels

Monday, September 12th, 2011

(Part of our ongoing series comparing features in Revit MEP and Design Master to make it clear why our software is better.)

Both Design Master Electrical and Revit MEP can document multi-section panels. How you create these panels once again demonstrates the difference in how these two programs work.

On the Autodesk Revit MEP blog, they posted a video explaining how to document multi-section panels. The video is five minutes long! That’s quite an explanation for a feature that should be pretty fundamental and is frequently used by customers.

In Design Master Electrical, it won’t take you more than a minute, and the process is simple enough that we can explain in it words:

  • Go to the DM Electrical->One-Line Devices->Panels command.
  • Select the appropriate panel using the Find button or create a new one using the New button.
  • To model the multi-section panel using a single panel with more than 42 circuits, change the Number of Poles field from 42 to 84.
  • To model the multi-section panel using multiple panels, change the Starting Circuit field to 43.

Compare that process to what they show in their video. Which would you want to use?
