About this app
Revit is a powerful software for electrical design and documentation, but managing parametric information across a complex network can be time-consuming and prone to errors. That's where Data Ctrl Electrical comes in. This innovative Revit plugin automatically pushes parametric information through the entire electrical network, ensuring that parameter values stay up-to-date as you modify the network's elements. With Data Ctrl, you can focus on what matters most, while the app takes care of data management for you.
Effortless Data Management
Data Ctrl simplifies the process of maintaining accurate parameter values. By selecting the parameters you want to use, the app does the rest. Whether you are modifying conduits, cable trays, or their run schedules, Data Ctrl quietly operates in the background, ensuring that parameter values are updated accordingly. This seamless integration saves you time and effort, allowing you to work more efficiently.
Additional Features for Enhanced Efficiency
While the core functionality of Data Ctrl is impressive, the plugin goes above and beyond by offering additional features to streamline data management in your electrical model.
The Export Schedule feature allows you to export schedules to Excel® files, even if Excel isn't installed on your system. This enhances data management efficiency by ensuring that you can access and analyze schedules easily.
The Match Parameters feature is another time-saving tool. It enables you to copy parameter values from one run to multiple others, eliminating the need for manual input. This feature is particularly useful when you have multiple runs with the same parameter values.
Data Ctrl also offers the Equipment From and To feature, which simplifies the process of copying equipment name values and distributing them among selected runs. This ensures consistency and accuracy across your electrical model.
Simplified Editing and Consistency
When editing individual elements in a run, Data Ctrl ensures that any updates to parameter values are automatically pushed to all connected elements or a single run, depending on your preference. This ensures that information remains consistent and up-to-date in the schedules, saving you from the tedious task of manually updating each element.
Understanding a single run is crucial for efficient data management, and Data Ctrl provides clear guidelines. A single run includes all connected conduits or cable trays and fittings of the 'Elbow' type. Any other type of fitting breaks a run into two or more segments. This rule applies to all electrical systems, ensuring that you can easily identify and manage runs in your model.
Data Ctrl Electrical is an indispensable plugin for any electrical designer or engineer working with Revit. Its ability to automatically push parametric information through the entire electrical network saves time and reduces the risk of errors. The additional features, such as exporting schedules and matching parameters, further enhance efficiency and streamline data management.
If you're tired of manually updating parameter values and struggling to maintain consistency in your electrical model, give Data Ctrl Electrical a try. A free trial version, which includes the plugin's full functionality, is available for download. Experience the convenience and power of Data Ctrl, and take your Revit electrical design to the next level.
