Have the "Diffuser Connection Settings" be able to be set based upon airflow type. For example, supply ducts always connect with flexible and return ducts connect with hard.2 votes
This is completed for DM HVAC 7.3.
We often need to lock a duct size or sizes for various reasons. After creating large sprawling duct systems, it is difficult to track these locked ducts so that we can check them when airflows change and resize them if necessary.2 votes
Completed for DM HVAC 7.2.
Add a button to label the pressure drop for a run of duct (the "Pressure Drop in this Section" value from the the "Query Duct" window). We use DM HVAC to do a lot of existing ductwork analysis for energy audits, etc., and we could really use a function that shows us how much pressure drop each section of the ductwork has, and the pressure drop for each fitting, in much the same format as the ductwork size labels currently appear.1 vote
The new pressure drop schedule in DM HVAC 7 should satisfy this request.
Set the total CFM value for a zone. This value will be distributed to the rooms based upon the relative calculated CFM values.1 vote
This feature was added in Design Master HVAC 7.1.
It would be nice to include (2) additional properties within the diffuser schedule:
1) Mounting type (i.e. Surface Mount, Lay-In, Spiral Duct, etc.)
2) Material (Steel, Aluminum, etc.)1 vote
We added two more generic notes to diffuser schedules in Design Master HVAC 7.4 to address this request.
It would be nice to have a "format painter" type option which copied/pasted properties, especially for ductwork. For example: click the paintbrush, select the item with properties to be copied, then select the item to apply them to.1 vote
You’re in luck! This is implemented and ready to go for the next release of DM HVAC. The beta will be available before the end of 2013.
Include an option to not include flex duct in the IFC file when exported for 3D collision detection.0 votes
Will be included in DM HVAC 7.2.
