Does anyone have an easy way to utilize spaghetti on drawings? Can you break it where it crosses without getting homerun arrows? I want to use wires but they are not very user friendly for me - any suggestions help. I am an advocate for just putting panel and circuit info next to the device but we have people in our company that want to see spaghetti and always retort 'I CAN DO IT IN AUTOCAD!"' Thoughts?

We don't show this wiring on our drawings, but we will eventually have to show some (required by some local codes for EM lighting and such).


There seems to be a setting "Gap of Wiring Crossing" under Electrical Settings » Wiring, but I can't get the Wiring to break at all. Also, there are a number of graphical issues regarding Wiring, such as not terminating the Wire on the boundary of a Family represented by an embedded Generic Annotation. I would recommend searching this forum because there are many posts full of reports, methods, and other info regarding Wiring.


I have tagged a small number of posts: Tag "Wire"

The Wire Gap settings will only display if Hardware Acceleration is Enabled in the Revit Options.


As for the wires and the nested annotation symbol, this is a wish request that has already been logged.
