ID Spec Plugin

From the Autodesk App Store:

ID Spec plugin allows you to do the pre-design of electrical system inside Autodesk® AutoCAD®.

Using ID Spec, you can create an electrical power plan with the architectural layout of the building in the background, taking in to account various electrical loads in the building and their connection details with automatic determination of cable length.

The Plugin proposes feasible solutions for the electrical power plan by analyzing load distribution, sizing and selection of electrical equipment. You can now optimize your electrical distribution design inside the building by barycenter calculation and evaluate the overall energy performance of the electrical system. ID Spec Plugin generates a high-level bill of equipment and a detailed technical specification of the electrical equipment to allow the customers to have their proposals ready in no time!

Note: This app uses custom installer and not the Autodesk App Store standard installer.
