Export One-Line

Exports the information from the Revit model to AutoCAD for use in creating a one-line diagram.

The first time you run the command, the Export One-Line Riser Diagram dialog box will open:


This dialog box explains how the one-line diagram in AutoCAD works with the Revit model. Links are provided to download the AutoCAD add-in from the website and watch a video describing the Export One-Line command process.

Check Do not show this dialog box again to prevent this dialog box from appearing in the future.

The first time you run the command in a project, the Select database to export to dialog box will open:


Select the DM file to which you want to export the information. The DM file must be created in AutoCAD using the Start New Electrical RT Project command before you run this command.

The next time you run the command, a Design Master Electrical RT dialog box will open:


The location of the folder to which the information will be exported is listed.

Calculate then export: Press this button to run the Calculate command before exporting the information. This action will update all of the information in the model so that it is correct, but will take a moment to run.

Export: Press this button to export the information as it currently exists. This action allows you to export immediately if you have recently run the Calculate command command or know your model has not changed since you last ran the command.

Choose new export location: Press this button to choose a new location to which to export the information. The Select database to export to dialog box will be shown.

After the information has been exported, go to AutoCAD and use the Update One-Line Diagram command to update the values on your AutoCAD drawing.
