    Electrical circuiting

    Our engineering firm is just starting to use the circuiting and panel schedules provided in Revit. We are doing a lot of hotels now. Some with 120 guest rooms. Is there anyway in Revit to copy circuits to put into a panel without having to make 120 different circuits? We do not show our circuits on our sheets since the architect already shows the circuits for lights, special systems and power. Instead we show keynotes to refer to architects drawings for circuiting. But we do however have to show the loads on our panel schedules. Any thoughts? Thanks for your help.

    Ouch. To my knowledge, there's no way to copy a circuit, you have to select the devices and the panel each time. On the plus side, it's really just a two-step process: select devices, select panel.

      I have never heard of anyone copying circuits in a panel. however; you can add a spare to the panel and change the name to whatever you want. also you can change how the word "Spare" populates a schedule, meaning you can change it to "SPARE" or anything you want. But no loads will be assigned.

      So you might need to select a device, power it than select a panel. Its not that time consuming.

      One more thing why do the ARCH's show your circuiting? thats crazy.

        Thank you for your response. Sorry I did not explain clearly. The Arch shows the locations of the receptacles and light fixtures in his drawings but not the circuiThe circuiting is explained in the keynote. Your right that would be crazy.
