Episode 8 of the Electrical Building Design Show, The Electrical BIM Scorecard, is available to view. In this episode, we present the scorecard to help electrical engineers assess whether particular building information modeling software offerings will meet the requirements for an effective solution.
The next episode will premiere on Tuesday, February 6, so be sure to visit the Design Master YouTube channel and subscribe for notifications of new releases.
For those who prefer audio podcasts instead, there’s a version of the show in that format also. It’s carried on all the major podcast channels (Spotify, Apple, Google, Amazon, etc.), and can be found by searching for the show by name on your favorite channel.
A Look at the BIM Scorecard
As is talked about in the most recent Electrical Building Design Show (see above), the Electrical BIM Scorecard is available for engineers to evaluate BIM software for its usefulness in electrical engineering.
To supplement the information presented in the design show, you can also read our recent blog post regarding the BIM Scorecard topic which provides additional information on how to use this tool to locate effective electrical design software.
ElectroBIM 2.1.3 Now Available
We’re happy to announce the release of the latest version of ElectroBIM for Revit (formerly Design Master Electrical RT).
Version 2.1.3 is available for download at the link below, and new features include setting panel, instance, and family values to match Revit parameters; new shared parameters for breaker settings and total voltage drop for individual branch circuits; and more.
We were busy throughout 2023 putting out new features. This video lets us take a moment to review them to help you make sure you're taking advantage of them in your designs.

February 15, 2024: Feeder IDs Versus Feeder Callouts
The relationship between feeder IDs and feeder callouts is a bit different when you're using ElectroBIM than when you're sizing wires by hand. We'll talk about why it's different, how it's better, and what you should do when your feeder ID is wrong.
