Enhancing your electrical design workflow in Autodesk® Revit®.
A busy day of circuiting your Revit design can leave some electrical panel boards mislabelled … misconnected … or completely unconnected. You need a tool that helps ensure your Revit electrical model is correct.
In the construction design industry, Revit MEP is a leap forward in collaborative design. No need to wait for drawings to be passed back and forth among your design teams.
And now with PowerCad-PNL, electrical designers have a tool to enhance their Revit MEP workflow to help meet — even beat — aggressive design schedules.
You see, when reviewing complex projects one of your best tools is simplicity. PowerCad-PNL is your tool to extract all panel boards and interconnections to a live 2D view. You get a concise flat schematic that speeds BIM project design reviews.
And BIM Managers will appreciate the easy installation. Just download PowerCad-PNL for Revit MEP (it’s free!):
See the layout of your electrical system:
When you want to visualize the electrical layout, PowerCad-PNL creates a live 2D line diagram of all your panel boards and their interconnections. Quickly find any panel board in your design.
Using just one global view of your panel boards, you can edit and rename them all. Fast.
Find All Non-Connected Panel Boards:
On the live 2D line diagram, non-connected panel boards fall out and are displayed in a clear, separate list. Jump to them in your Revit workspace and fix the design.
Analyse Your Loads:
PowerCad-PNL displays the loads on each panel board. It’s easy to review your power distribution.
Display Cable Lengths:
See your cable lengths between panel boards, so you know which runs might be too long. Estimators can begin more accurate job pricing too.
Export to PowerCad-5:
After you’ve completed your electrical panel board layout in Revit MEP, bring your design into the PowerCad-5 workspace where you can complete your detailed design.
