The DIRTT Power Components dynamic view provides information about the power items in your file. This information was previously hard to track down without having searching through ICE 2D plan view. If you check your DIRTT power file properties or ICE 3D view and notice issues that impact your design intent and power requirements, you can use the DIRTT Power Components dynamic view to pin point, adjust, and fine tune power components more quickly and efficiently than before.


View Product Details

DIRTT Power Components breaks power components out by category. You can expand each line item by double-clicking on it, or you can click select an item and click the Show Details button.

DIRTT Power Components and the DIRTT Power SFN

DIRTT Power Components displays power components exactly as they appear in DIRTT Power SFN. If you tag any items, your tags will impact how DIRTT Power Components sorts items. If you add tags, you may notice multiple lines for the same types of components. If you can't find what you are looking for right away, chances are it has been broken out into a separate group due to tagging.


For example, in the above below, there are two 2 Gang Wall Boxes. However each wall box appears on a separate line in DIRTT Power Components and have a different power tag:

If your file is set to GSA pricing, DIRTT Power Components will not populate, like the DIRTT Power SFN. In Current File Settings, you can turn GSA off, and you will be able to see power items in DIRTT Power Components. For more information about turning GSA on and off, see GSA Project.
