Spooling Tips

  1. When defining multiple spools, the spool number is auto-incremented.
  2. After exiting, the last spool number is remembered and auto incrementation continues when resuming Define Spool.
  3. Spools may be defined from the eVolve Electrical tab or the contextual ribbon.
  4. The Create Sheet(s) on Finish checkbox is typically used when generating a few sheets. If generating many sheets, use the Spool Manager.
  5. When defining a spool, existing spools cannot be added to the spool.
  6. When defining a spool:
    1. Typical Revit selection methods may be used.
    2. A single click adds all parts and pieces of nested families to a spool.
    3. The CTRL key does not need to be pressed to add elements to the spool.
      1. When selected, elements are typically highlighted and blue in color. However, after being selected, some elements may not appear to be highlighted. Hover the pointer over an element to verify that the element has been added to the spool.
      2. When hovering, if an element has not been added a plus symbol (+) appears, click to add the element. If an element has been added, a minus symbol (-) appears, click to remove the element.
