MagiCAD Electrical Calculations for Revit

The first solution to offer integrated electrical building services calculations directly from the Revit model

Electrical Calculations Webinar on November 13th – Click here to register

MagiCAD for Revit now enables you to perform integrated electrical calculations directly from the Revit model, complete with bidirectional flow of data between the calculations and the Revit project.

The wide range of electrical calculations includes cable sizing, voltage drop, and short-circuit calculations, as well as defining the protective devices directly via the Revit project. MagiCAD automatically gathers all the relevant data from the Revit project, which means that you only need to use a single interface for entering or editing the data. All of the calculation data can be accessed from MagiCAD’s Electrical Calculations dialog, where you can modify the data and update the results to the Revit parameters quickly and easily. Since MagiCAD now includes Schneider’s Electric Ecodial calculation engine, it is also possible to export the project to Schneider Electric Ecodial Advance Calculation software for further fine-tuning.

MagiCAD Electrical fully integrates with the user interface of Revit software. MagiCAD Electrical automates many frequently required electrical design tasks on Revit, and can shorten the typical run-through time of electrical design projects by 30% or more.
