Insert Create

Allows you to create an equipment on the one-line diagram and in the electrical model. Opens the Create Equipment dialog box:

Create Equipment Dialog Box

create-equipment-dialog-box

Equipment Type: The type of equipment to be created. The default types available are described below and can be modified in the One-Line Diagram Device Graphics command.

Panel: The One-Line Diagram Graphic list will display panel and switchboard graphic families. The Model Family list will display Revit families with Part Type set to Panelboard, Other Panel, or Switchboard.
Transformer: The One-Line Diagram Graphic list will display transformer graphic families. The Model Family list will display Revit families with Part Type set to Transformer.
Other Distribution Equipment: The One-Line Diagram Graphic list will display transfer switch and generator graphic families. The Model Family list will display Revit families with Part Type set to Panelboard, Other Panel, or Switchboard.
Branch Circuit Equipment: The One-Line Diagram Graphic list will display graphic families of equipment and motor connections, junction boxes, and other branch circuit devices. The Model Family list will display Revit families of electrical fixtures and electrical equipment with Part Type set to Equipment Switch.

Callout: The name of the equipment. For distribution equipment, the Panel Name parameter will use this value. For branch circuit devices, this field is disabled.

Level: The level on which the equipment will be inserted in the model. The values available are based upon the levels defined in the model.

Default DM Level: The equipment will be inserted on a level defined by Design Master that is high above the model.

Distribution System: The primary voltage of the equipment. This is the same value as the Distribution System parameter. The values available are based upon the Distribution Systems set in the Electrical Settings command. For branch circuit devices, this field is disabled.

Family default: A distribution system will not be set for the equipment. When the equipment is created, the Distribution System will be set to the family default if it exists, or set to <None>.

Secondary Distribution System: The secondary voltage of the equipment. This is the same value as the Secondary Distribution System parameter. The values available are based upon the Distribution Systems set in the Electrical Settings command. This field is only displayed if the Equipment Type is set to display transformers.

Family default: A secondary distribution system will not be set for the equipment. When the equipment is created, the Secondary Distribution System will be set to the family default if it exists, or set to <None>.

One-Line Diagram Graphic: The graphic family that will be used for the equipment.

One-Line Diagram Type: The graphic type that will be used for the equipment. The values in this list are based upon the selected One-Line Diagram Graphic.

Model Family: The Revit family that will be used for the equipment. All of the Revit families loaded into the project that match the specified Equipment Type will be listed unless otherwise specified in the One-Line Diagram Device Graphics command.

Load Family: Press this button to load a Revit family into the project. You will be prompted to select a ".rfa" file to load. The loaded family will then be selected in Model Family.

Model Type: The Revit type that will be used for the equipment. The values in this list are based upon the selected Model Family.

Press the OK button to insert the equipment on the one-line diagram and in the electrical model.

Inserting the Equipment

You will be prompted for the insertion point of the equipment graphic.

Click to place a free instance (Space Bar to Rotate)

The equipment will be inserted on the one-line diagram and created in the electrical model. You will then be prompted to specify an upstream distribution equipment or existing branch circuit to which the new equipment will be connected.

Select upstream distribution equipment or circuit to connect to or press ESC for no connection:

A feeder will be inserted between the equipment and the specified upstream distribution equipment or existing branch circuit. The equipment will be circuited to the upstream distribution equipment or existing branch circuit in the electrical model.
