Longboard - Power, Lighting Controls and Fire Alarm

From the Autodesk App Store:


Are you tired of the tedious task of laying out electrical systems in buildings?

Inserting thousands of devices over and over again, project after the project gets tiring, boring and just plain repetitive! 

No longer will you need to put a switch next to each door, layout occupancy sensors, fire alarm devices, or electrical panels. 

You won't have to place each initial receptacle to only have them move on you anyway. Place those initial devices to start the conversation, with minimal effort on your part. 

You heard that right! In minutes we place the following devices in your Autodesk® Revit® model:

  • Receptacles
  • Switches
  • Occupancy Sensors
  • Smoke Detectors
  • Wall and Ceiling Mounted Fire Alarm
  • Electrical Panels

Choose the placement strategy for receptacles - placing N per wall, evenly spaced. Place one 6" from the door (great for storage rooms) or place them at an interval around the room.

Select how many switches you want at each door.

Determine the coverage diameter of your occupancy sensors. 

Choose the candela rating of your fire alarm devices

Choose how many panels you want in each electrical room. 

Then wait a few minutes while your entire model is populated for you! 

Have better conversations sooner! 

Save time!

Respond to changes faster than ever before.

Never has designed a building been easier!
