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.

    • Representing Different Floors on Parallel Backgrounds

      A common practice, at least within my own company, is to represent different floors in parallel background drawings separated by an arbitrary and regular distance. It would be helpful for creating drawings if Design Master automatically added to these parallel drawings when a pipe would transfer from one floor to another. For example when a pipe from the first floor goes to the second floor in a vertical pipe it would be useful if Design Master showed the pipe going up on the first floor and coming up on the second floor automatically. These two entities would have to be…

      • Different Piping Labels on Isometrics vs. 2-D Models

        On isometric drawings it is some times useful or required to include different labels than are present on the 2-D models. Adding an option to have different labels on each would be simpler than the current fix which is to print off all of the drawings which require on type of labeling then change the labeling options and print all of the drawings which require the other.

          • Have Pipes Arrows Point in Flow Direction

            Have the option to specify which way pipes flow (toward fixtures or away) and have the arrows on the pipe drawn to match.

            • Set Pipe Linetype by Layer System

              Allow each layer system for a pipe type to have a different linetype. In particular, demo pipes need to have a different linetype from new and existing pipes.
