Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding a cable tray, part of Revit: Fire-Alarm Systems Design.
- Cable Tray used to never exist…in the early dark days of Revit.…We had to model our own families.…It was horrible.…Guess what?…We have all sorts of Cable Tray now.…The objective of this video is to run Cable Tray…out of the electrical room over to the far…reaching end of our building.…We will then add bends, rises,…drops and T intersections as well.…So, let's get started.…I'm gonna jump into the electrical room…and I'd like to go to electrical,…fire alarm, floor plan, level one.…
I'd like you to go to the systems tab.…I'm gonna click on Cable Tray.…In my Properties, I'm gonna click the Cable Tray drop down…and I have a bunch of Cable Tray to choose from.…I like the ladder Cable Tray.…It's easier to get your hand in there…to fish the wire through.…For my offset, I'm gonna go nine feet and hit enter.…I'm gonna start my cable tray right about here.…I'm gonna go up to this wall right here.…Now, I'm gonna offset it 10 feet.…
I'm gonna come up to this side of the corridor.…I'm gonna pick that point.…I'm gonna bring my cable tray all the way down.…
