eVolve Electrical has been around for several years, and it’s unique to the software world . . . it was built by electricians. Shocking. Turns out, electricians know what they need to do their best work in an industry that has little tolerance for errors.

The purpose of eVolve is to provide users with Revit content and tools to accurately model and coordinate electrical raceway systems, then quickly translate that design model into the prefabrication deliverables needed to order the correct materials and fabricate the components. If you’d like to explore why eVolve was created, see “eVolve – Don’t let kryptonite bring down your MEP superman.” For a look at the newest flavor of eVolve, see “9 Ways eVolve is Driving Your Mechanical Firm’s Technology Forward.”

Here are some ways eVolve has helped boost business for your peers:
  1. Smooth transition from AutoCAD to Revit. Thousands of users have been waiting for that. Maybe you’re one of them?
  2. Quick tool bar access to over 300 pieces of content, including generic parts and pieces, manufacturer-specific content and prefab assemblies.
  3. All material modeled will combine to one single schedule: system conduit, wireway, connectors, supports, etc.
  4. Just-in-Time environment allows users to kit material by floor, area or rooms within Revit.
  5. All schedules can be exported to Excel. Export material list to a generic material requisition or easily choose your own company Excel form to export to. Finally.
  6. Ability to drive fabrication from the model by utilizing custom schedules and one-click build sheets. It really is that easy.
  7. Quick ordering of materials. Counts all parts with build schedules. Every individual part will come into a schedule. You gotta see it to believe it.
  8. Quickly customize prefab assembly configurations through context menus.
  9. Over 10 customizable in-wall rough assemblies, allowing users to create the configuration they need. One-click build sheet will capture the quantity and bill of materials needed for each configuration of the assemblies. Just. One. Click.
  10. Single, double and triple trapeze assemblies, fully customizable hardware, size, mounting and finish. Again, the one-click build sheet will capture the quantity and bill of materials needed for each configuration of the assemblies.
  11. RTS points creator and exporter. Utilize nest points within hanger assemblies or create your own points. The exporter will export to CSV, txt or TFL. Use it in any total station that you’re running. Now that’s a shocker…
  12. Model with conduit bend families. All bends can be scheduled by type of bend, and user can select bender type to ensure the proper radius is modeled in the bend.
  13. Conduit bend schedules provide bend information for each type of bend to ensure your fab shop can produce each bend as modeled. They’ll appreciate it as much as you do.
  14. Face-based elements snap to a face and give options for adding flanges, couplings, connectors and bushings. Reduces the need to physically model every component needed to make a conduit or raceway connection to a panel or pull box. Talk about a time saver!
  15. Bend schedules can be filtered by area, floor, or isolate the way you need to produce them. No need to go back and isolate bends and track dimensions.
  16. Integrate conduit bend families with eVolve system conduit to capture all of the bills of materials onto one schedule. System conduit is flexible, too – push and pull systems without breaking them.
  17. Platform for innovation. Yes, you can!
  18. Sheetset creation – The ability to create hundreds of sheets with a single function through Revit phases or worksets.
  19. Quick rotating and moving tools allow users to easily move objects into place.
  20. Ability to finish projects sooner for less money and with fewer errors. Sounds good, doesn’t it?
  21. The ability to test beta versions – Users can request to be invited to be a beta content tester.
  22. Input into features for future releases – eVolve has an active user group that provides feedback on software features and makes suggestions for future features. You can interact with the development team and other users. Give your input and be heard.
Customers drive the development of eVolve Electrical, and the development team members are electricians who have worked in the field. This is not just a product the team thinks you need. eVolve has constant interaction with customers to determine what works, what doesn’t and what they need to streamline to create better workflows and improve profitability.
If that sounds good to you, you know what you need to do: eVolve
