Cable tray in Revit went from non-existent to pretty awesome. What this video will illustrate is how to run a ladder cable tray. We will run the tray at different elevations, and will create T-intersections. Of course we will look at the cable tray system configurations, and see all of the choices we have to show rises and drops.
- [Presenter] Let's draw some cable trays, shall we?…Let's jump into Revit and go to projects, and let's go open.…I'm gonna find my cable tray model, I'm gonna click open.…What I'm gonna do is go down to my one power floor plan.…Then I'm gonna come on up to here.…I'm gonna go to my systems, but before I draw any,…I'm gonna to my electrical settings.…And of course I'm gonna to my cable tray settings.…My cable tray fitting annotation size,…I like to be 3/32 of an inch.…
I like the X for the separator.…For my rise drop, 3/32 of an inch,…for my single line symbology,…We can click here, a cross, no outline, that's fine.…The same with this.…Two-line symbology, and I just have a cross.…Let's hit okay.…Now, I'm gonna click on cable tray,…and the default template has a lot of cable tray models.…
I'm gonna go with ladder cable tray.…I'll keep my width at 12 inches,…my height at four inches.…Before we draw, if you want,…you can click on justification, you can center it,…you can have an offset, or you can go…top, bottom, middle, vertical.…
