Design Master Wish List

The current releases are DM Electrical RT 1.1, DM Electrical 8.4, DM HVAC 7.3, and DM Plumbing 4.1. We are not adding new features to these releases.

The next releases will be DM Electrical RT 1.2, DM Electrical 8.5, DM HVAC 7.4, and DM Plumbing 4.2 We are actively working on these release and using this wishlist to guide which features we implement. Some features you see marked as “complete” will not be available until these releases are finished.

How can we improve Design Master?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

    • Right click when entering Duct Labels to Rotate Label

      Similar to how you can right click to add leader lines when labeling diffusers, it would be helpful to be able to right click duct labels to rotate them instead of making this a two step process. Also, rotating it would remove the arrow that sometimes accompanies the duct label.

      • Wrap wire size text on panel schedules

        Add the ability for wire size callouts on the panel schedule to wrap if they get too long, similar to how circuit description wrap.

          • Diversify zone airflow based upon people diversity

            When a VAV zone has people diversity specified, update the zone airflow. Currently, the zone load is updated, but the airflow is not.

                • 5-Wire Feeders

                  Create feeders with a 5th wire (dedicated neutral) for computer/technology panels. These are typically routed to "K-Rated" dry-type transformers.

                    • Tick Marks on Switches in Parallel

                      Handle tick marks on switches in parallel correctly.

                      One use for this is multiple occupancy sensors in which case if any one switch is on the lights will be one. Each switch requires a hot and neutral as well as the switched leg.

                      • Add a sort by circuit id, then by callout to Project Explorer

                        Many times on complicated drawings I have a circuit that feeds multiple floors of devices or large areas. When I do Find Circuit, DM will zoom way out, highlight all the devices, and put lines to them. As soon as I try to find those far away circuits the lines disappear and then I start the needle in the hay stack look. If I has sort by circuit id, then callout I could see all the devices and then select find on each device of that circuit till I select the one in question since it creates a line that…

                              Fix the diffuser callouts so they can be moved more consistently and reliable with grips instead of using the "Move Callout" command.
