    Electrician new to Revit and modeling.

    I’m a master electrician with over 15 years of commercial experience. The company I work for has a mechanical division with their own CAD department, they’ve been doing all of our previous coordination with Fabrication MEP, with me creating a drawing with the conduit sizes, ideal routing, and destinations. The electrical division recently created a position for me as our first electrical coordinator, and we’re going with Revit. I’m a couple weeks in, have a 4 day Revit MEP course under my belt (mostly engineer geared), have already started modeling for a new job we’re doing (underground conduits), and we’ve just got SysQue (haven’t even used it yet). Looking for any good advice. Thanks.

    Congrats! As you have questions ask them.

    I'll offer one thing I've been doing more lately, using a generic size cable tray (size of overall rack) for pathway layout before doing any actual conduit. Once we've agreed on the path then I'll undertake dealing with the conduit sizes etc. In one instance where I was only concerned with pathway coordination I used in-place families for each major run and a profile family that "swept" all the conduits in a rack instead of drawing each conduit run or delving into the parallel conduits (sizes varied in the racks). It was easier to revise each rack profile when that happened and the path could be modified and have the whole rack shift along with it.
