About this app
Revit users often face challenges when calculating the total length of conduit or cable tray runs, especially when dealing with angles and fittings. However, with the Run Lookup plugin, this task becomes significantly easier and more efficient. In this review, we will explore the features and benefits of this powerful Revit add-in.
Run Lookup is designed to simplify the calculation of the total length for selected conduit or cable tray runs in Autodesk Revit. It takes into account angle bends, making it a valuable tool in scenarios with constrained conduit runs. By factoring in fittings and angles, Run Lookup ensures accurate length calculations, improving the precision of your designs.
Compatibility with Various Systems
This plugin is compatible with a range of systems, including:
- Conduits without fittings
- Bend (Elbows)
- Cable trays without fittings
- Horizontal Bend
- Vertical Inside Bend
- Vertical Outside Bend
Whether you're working with conduits or cable trays, Run Lookup has got you covered. It provides the flexibility to handle different types of systems, ensuring that you can use it across various projects.
Effortless Extraction with Run Schedule
To determine the total run length for conduits or cable trays without fittings, Run Lookup utilizes the Revit Run Schedule. It extracts the length, inclusive of any fittings of the type 'ELBOW'. This feature eliminates the need for manual calculations, saving you time and effort.
If you find the use of the run schedule in Autodesk Revit to be cumbersome, the developers of Run Lookup recommend their Data Ctrl app. This additional solution is designed to streamline your workflow further. Please note that the Data Ctrl app requires a custom installer.
Run Lookup is a valuable Revit plugin that simplifies the calculation of conduit and cable tray lengths. By factoring in angle bends and utilizing the Revit Run Schedule, it removes the complexities associated with manual calculations, allowing you to focus on the design itself.
If you frequently work with conduit or cable tray systems in Revit, Run Lookup is a must-have tool. Its compatibility with various systems and its streamlined approach make it an essential addition to any designer's arsenal.
While it is important to note that support for the families 'Conduit with Fittings' and 'Cable Tray with Fittings' has been discontinued due to accuracy issues, this does not diminish the overall value and functionality of the plugin.
Take your conduit and cable tray calculations to the next level with Run Lookup. Try it today and experience the ease and efficiency it brings to your Revit workflow.
