Written By Carol Dunn
eVolve MEP software for mechanical, electrical, and plumbing with Revit.

eVolve MEP has announced that the latest release of eVolve Electrical, v4.2.9, is now available. For downloads visit: http://evolvemep.com/downloads.

This release contains minor changes, fixes and stability improvements to ensure all of the newest features of version 4.2 perform as expected. Follow the link to see a full list of v4.2.9 release notes.

The eVolve MEP team reports there was a great turnout on Friday, February 5 for the eVolve Electrical monthly customer update meeting, which covered all the latest changes with this hotfix.


  • Continued grid standardization –Bulk updating of rules has been added to both Sleeve Settings and Project Bend Settings.
  • Use Modify Spool on spools within a prefab package – Customers using the beta Prefab Packages feature can now use Modify Spool on spools currently in a package.
  • Update conduit length on Run Schedule via Load Runs – For customers using the Conduit Run Schedule feature “Load Runs,” it now updates the modeled length for the selected runs. When the user clicks “Apply” or “Ok” to close the window, the updated values will be pushed to the elements.

eVolve Electrical software creates an easy-to-use Revit experience and produces the level of accuracy needed to efficiently fabricate and construct projects.

If you’re not yet using the specialized eVolve Electrical features for kitting, spooling, hangers, auto-route, conduit bends, and content, request a demo and find out what you’re missing.


  • Place Coupling fixes.

  • Trapeze hanger rod length and points move.
  • Kick-90 reverse fixed end clears Dimension B.

Stability improvements:

  • Honor files with different origin points.
  • New notification pop-up displays as expected.
  • Added user-defined group back to default Shared Parameter file.
  • Handle multi-trim invalid geometry error.
  • Updated ConduitRun Calc to consider eVolve_Length parameter.
  • Block user edits to ‘computed’ points.

Content fixes: 

  • Hangers:
    • Fixed points not being fixed to the rod ends.
    • Fixed rod length issue when detaching specific tiers.
  • Bends
    • Fixed remnant length for 4-point saddle.
    • Fixed female adapter on factory elbow.
    • Fixed R20 and R21 kick-90 families.
  • Misc
    • Slotted strut updated to 13/16″ OD.

Using feedback from eVolve Electrical customers, the development team was able to quickly identify key bugs and changes from the previous release 4.2. The development and quality assurance teams did another outstanding job ensuring this release was turned around promptly. Their hard work and dedicated efforts are appreciated.

Note: As with eVolve Mechanical, this is the last major release expected before compatibility with Revit 2022. It is also the last major update to be released for use with Revit 2019.
