  2. After the installer has finished, open a project or family in Revit. You should see an ElectroBIM Design ribbon and an ElectroBIM Single-Line ribbon.

  • To begin a trial of the software, press the button. Some ElectroBIM outputs will be watermarked until a license is installed.
  • To purchase a license, press the button.
  • If you already have a license, press the button, enter your License ID and Activation Password in the fields provided, and press the button.
