Customization Basics

Design Master Electrical RT sizes feeders using its own settings, not the ones included in Revit MEP. You have complete control over how the feeders are sized. The Customization tab contains the commands you can use to customize the sizing.

The Wire Sizes command is used to add or remove wire sizes and to create new wire materials.

The Conduit Sizes command is used to add or remove conduit sizes and to create new conduit materials.

A common request is to not use 1/2" conduit for feeders. That is easily accomplished by using this command and deleting the 1/2" conduit size.

The Wire Ampacities command is used to specify the wire sizes used for a specific feeder ampacity. This command also sets the impedance for the feeders. The default impedances are based upon NEC Table 9, but can be changed if desired.

The Options command has a number of other options you can set. Browse through that command to see what additional customization options you have.

The Family Edit command allows you to set default values in your families. You can set information once in your families with this command instead of modifying it using the Panel Edit or Instance Edit commands.
