Print One-Line Takeoff

To perform a takeoff of one-line devices and feeders in your project, go to

DM Electrical->Takeoffs->Print One-Line Takeoff Area

The takeoff will be generated as an HTML file and displayed in your web browser. The one-line devices are sorted by types. All devices of each type are grouped together. Examples of one-line device takeoff information and the format in which the information is displayed are provided below.

Breaker Totals

takeoffs - breaker total sample\

Breakers are listed twice, once with the device which they are associated, and again in a separate section that totals all of the breakers in the project. The breaker quantities do not include main disconnect breakers. Those are listed separately as part of the one-line device description. The project totals are grouped by voltage and AIC rating.

Feeder Lengths

takeoffs - feeder sample

Feeders are also listed twice, once with the device which they are associated, and again in a total for the project. The length of the feeder serving each device is listed with each device. The feeder length is labeled as either being Calculated or Fixed. Feeder lengths labeled Calculated were calculated based upon the location of the one-line devices on the drawings. Feeder lengths labeled Fixed were input directly by the user and are not based upon the drawings.

Feeder lengths are always calculated using right-angles and unlike the takeoff calculations for circuits, do not use the building orientation settings set in the Set Looping Options command.
