About this app
Revit, the widely popular building information modeling software, has revolutionized the way engineers design electrical power systems. However, it is primarily based on the American standard NFPA 70, which may not meet the requirements of international standards. This is where CALDIMO plugin comes to the rescue. CALDIMO is a powerful plugin for Autodesk® Revit® that enables electrical engineers to perform calculations and analysis based on the international standard IEC 6036-5-52.
The Power of CALDIMO
CALDIMO takes the essential parameters from the basic Revit project, such as electrical power, circuit length, and voltage, and adds shared parameters to the electrical circuits category. These shared parameters are crucial for precise calculations and facilitate compliance with the international standard. CALDIMO considers important factors like electrical conductor size, nominal capacity of breakers, voltage drop, coordination between calculation currents, and allowable current for electrical conductors.
One of the standout features of CALDIMO is its ability to streamline repetitive tasks in electrical work. It offers an intuitive interface that allows users to modify predefined project variables, such as circuit parameters and tables, to speed up their workflow. Whether it's directly modifying parameters through circuit instance parameters or using the interactive interface window, CALDIMO offers flexibility and convenience.
Efficiency and Simplicity
With CALDIMO, electrical engineers can rely on predefined project variables or easily make changes as per their project requirements. The plugin provides a hassle-free experience by automating the creation of power circuits based on the template or predefined power system supply. It simplifies the design process by focusing solely on power circuits, ensuring optimal results.
Furthermore, CALDIMO's integration with Revit ensures a seamless experience. Users can access the plugin's features and functions directly within the Revit interface, eliminating the need for additional software or complicated setups. This integration enhances productivity and allows engineers to leverage the full potential of Revit in electrical design.
