In Revit, one of the Electrical enhancements is Circuit Sequencing Options. This has been added to the Circuit Sequence drop down menu in the Electrical Settings dialog to provide users the ability to specify the sequence in which the power circuits are created.
To set the sequence:
Open the Electrical Settings window (via the Manage tab, Settings panel, MEP Settings drop list, Electrical Settings). On the left side, select General, then go to the Settings column on the right. In the Settings column, find the row for Circuit Sequence.
Under the pull-down menu, users can now set the sequence to:
- Numerical (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12): The standard way Revit has circuited elements.
- Group by Phase (1,3,5 / 2,4,6 / 7,9,11/8,10,12).
- Odd then Even (1,3,5,7,9 ,11/ 2,4,6,8,10,12).
Once the selection is made on how the circuit needs to be created, the electrical device is then selected and the circuits will be added in the way the circuit sequence is specified to help improve productivity.
