Minimum Conduit Size

Wednesday, March 19th, 2014

Q: How do I set a minimum conduit size?

A: Use the Wire Sizing commands.

Ribbon: DME: Customization->Project Customization->  Wire Sizing

Pulldown Menu: DM Electrical->Customization->Wire Sizing->Edit Project List

Conduit sizes are displayed in the grid in the top-right corner of the Wire Sizing dialog box.

There are two different ways you can set a minimum conduit size:

Solution 1: Uncheck the “Standard” Boxes

There are two columns that control whether a conduit size is used when the conduit is sized automatically. Uncheck the Standard Branch column for conduit sizes that should not be used when sizing branch circuit conduits. Uncheck the Standard Feeder column for conduit sizes that should not be used when sizing feeder conduits.

Solution 2: Delete the Unused Conduit Sizes

Use the Delete Conduit Size button to delete any conduit sizes below the minimum size you want.
