Occasionally, you may be required to estimate pulling wire when the conduit has already been installed.
The fastest way is to:
Step 1. Measure the conduit length where wire is to be pulled.
Step 2. In Red Rhino Estimate, use the conduit Wizard to input conduit and wire.
Step 3. Delete everything input except wires.
Simple as that! You are left with the wire needed to be pulled into existing conduit.
Here are video links
Example: The plans show existing 2 ½ ” EMT Conduit is to have 4 new #4/0 Wires and 1 #4 ground pulled.
The conduit length measuring up, over, and down is a total of 176 feet.
You input the conduit using Conduit Wizard. The conduit wizard displays conduit, couplings, connectors, supports, wire and ground wire lengths.
Next you simply delete everything except wires.
And Red Rhino displays only total feet of wire needed.
Fast and easy! The method shown is faster than adding up all the wire lengths and inputting them separately.
