Description

Description

Electrical engineering is difficult. There are hundreds of calculations and factors that go into designing each job, with multiple ways to display that information. This class addresses that process by covering tips and tricks for electrical engineering. We will cover advanced family creation with embedded families, using key schedules, cost estimating, 1-line/riser diagrams, tagging, equipment design, shared parameters for use in schedules and floor plans, the power of filters, dual circuiting and light switching, panelboard schedule creation, and more. We will also examine how Autodesk Revit software displays and uses electrical systems and discuss how we can use that system-generated information.
