Starting a New Project

These tutorials show how you can use Design Master Electrical RT in a project that is in progress. This section briefly describes the workflow for designing new projects.

Configure Families and Customization for Future Projects

Before starting a new project, use the dmert-family-16 Family Edit command to configure your electrical families as described in the Modifying a Distribution Equipment Family and Modifying a Branch Circuit Family sections. Doing this once at the family level will save you from having to do it for every instance in the project later.

Follow the steps described in the Customizing Wire Ampacities section under Use Customization in Other Projects to apply your customization to future projects.

Draft and Design Your Electrical Distribution

After loading your equipment families into the project, use the dmert-red-i-16 Insert Create, dmert-red-c-16 Copy Create, dmert-red-e-16 Edit, and other commands on the DM One-Line tab to design your electrical distribution and draft your one-line diagram at the same time. When you're ready, use standard Revit functionality to move your distribution equipment into place.
