Busway

eVolve Electrical has taken Revit’s basic busway feature and enhanced it to load an advanced eVolve busway family, with multiple types and fitting options. eVolve automatically places drawn busway data into a streamlined schedule with no additional information needing to be added.  

The Busway Types window displays a list of preconfigured busway types with built-in fittings. From the Busway window, certain busways information, such as description, can be changed.

The eVolve Busway Types window

From the eVolve Electrical ribbon, in the Raceway panel, click the Busway button.

If not previously loaded, selecting a row and clicking OK loads the selected type as well as all other busway family types into the project.Users can then access the entire family from the Busway button in the eVolve Ribbon and from standard Revit Locations (Project Browser, Systems Ribbon, Properties Palette) This can also be performed manually by clicking the Load Types button.

Name- The busway type name

CategoryId- The busway category. Can be edited in this window.

SubCategoryId- The busway subcategory. Can be edited in this window.

Description- The eE_Description which will appear in schedules and boms

Pending Action- Displays actions not yet applied

Load Type- Loads all eVolve MC Cable types into the project for faster loading throughout the life of the project. Once loaded, the types can be accessed in standard Revit family locations.

To Draw With eVolve Busway

  1. From the eVolve Electrical ribbon, in the Raceway panel, click the Busway button.
  2. From the Busway Types window, click the Load Types button to pre-load all busway types into the project for future use.
  3. Select a busway type from the menu and click OK.
  4. Drawing with busway is similar to drawing with duct.

The Busway Schedule

eVolve also breaks down a project’s busway and fittings into a Preconfigured Busway Schedule. Schedules can be found in the Schedule drop-down in the Project Browser.
