Would still love to see this appear in Revit in the future, keep getting requests from engineers and clients to show these on drawings.

I'm now using the Revit MEP 2013 and these vertical cable tray are still unavailable. The porpose of these tray is to win space in narrow carridors. Is autodesk trying to implement this function?

Here's another example

Why didn't Autodesk talk to an electrical engineer when they thought about designing the "cable tray feature" then, I hope, that the ELECTRICAL ENGINEER would have told them that cable tray can be and is installed in all orientations.

Autodesk, what's your action regarding with this matter? It's already been years and still we cannot see any improvement. The version now is already 2014 but still the same problem.

 

Kindly help us resolve this matter.

 

Thanks

It's only been 4 years, give them a chance!!!!!

 

This is an Electrical problem, so they don't care about it as there is no E in MEP.

 

Cheers

Can anybody provide any advice on when or if this issue is to be resolved as per the post I am replying to.

I too need to route a large number of cable trays in the vertical position going up risers and must move along in the horizontal direction, but as stated by other users revit will always flip the tray when you modify its length etc.

This is a vital feature when routing tray work.
