Features

ProDesign 3D makes your Revit workflow seamless, one model removes the need to duplicate in separate softwares.

Calculate
Inline calculations improve the immediacy of results, reduce duplicated effort and create better workflows. ProDesign 3D enables you to continually check your 3D electrical designs for compliance to BS7671 standards with reliable results.

 

Find and fix calculation errors
Calculations sometimes expose design errors. Any such errors are reported within the Revit® model in a way that’s already familiar to ProDesign users. Each reported error provides a navigational link back to the model helping you to understand the problem and rapidly achieve a resolution.

 

Conceptual design made easier
Conceptual design estimates are an important starting point for any new project. Room assigned electrical load estimates for Lighting and Power in Revit® can be transferred into the first round ProDesign 3D electrical calculation to estimate the Board rating and sub main cable sizes before the detailed design begins. The facility pushes rule of thumb estimates into the past.

 

Cable Lengths
Obtain cable lengths directly from the Revit model, and add a design
allowance automatically.

Market leading content

ProDesign 3D leverages the UK’s largest range of fuses, circuit-breakers and relays all within Revit® 2016 and above, ensuring that you can build accurate designs and look at alternative scenarios.

 

Boards and Cables

Access to all the engineering details for your design including cable fixing methods, load summation and cable sizing, distribution board settings, voltage drops, line and earth fault adiabatic checks and discrimination checks.

 

Generate schematics

Completed designs can be opened in ProDesign where full schematics can be generated supporting your full construction delivery workflow.

Busbars
Identify equipment and wire types in Revit® 2016 and above and above as ProDesign 3D busbar components to perform calculations using approved manufacturer busbar data.

 

Motors & Motor starters
Motor starters can be recognised as a separate item of equipment in ProDesign 3D. Enter Trimble shared parameters into your motor family to auto populate Motor Settings in ProDesign 3D.

 

Revit / ProDesign 3D Mappings
Take advantage of our Revit mappings for Wire Types and Load Classifications to ProDesign 3D cable and load types. Mapping these automatically brings through the cable and load types in the ProDesign 3D settings dialogs.

 

Assigned Spaces
Use the Revit® Space feature to estimate loads in the model in ProDesign3D. We take the Revit® Space settings and data to perform an estimated load calculation of the Revit® spaces assigned to boards.
