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.

          • Add option to remove spaces in 'DMW: Circuit: Wire Callout'

            Add option so that wire callout will displays without spaces:
            3#10,#10G,3/4"C

            Currently displays as:
            3#10, #10G, 3/4"C

            I see this as being a preference, so that is why I suggest making it an option.

              Added in DM Electrical RT 1.2.1. We did it using new parameters.

              The original wire callouts included spaces and wrap across multiple lines, but are long. The new “WireCallout_Compact” wire callouts do not include spaces and are shorter, but do not wrap.

            • Fill in "Schedule Circuit Note" based upon family type

              We want a parameter in a family type to fill in the “schedule circuit notes”. We think that would be invaluable to mention things like fuse size, GFCI breaker requirements, etc.

              • Add "text" to a panel schedule to include the HVAC tag.

                Add "text" to a panel schedule to include the HVAC tag to differentiate HVAC equipment on a panel. Currently we are having to edit each circuit and add the HVAC tag manually to make it easier for the owner to identify which breaker serves which unit.

                  The DM workflow for this functionality is to use the “Instance Edit” command on the HVAC equipment. Override the circuit description there. Then, you get the right callout being displayed on whatever circuit you are connected to.

                • Custom Transformer Impedance and XR Ratio

                  Be able to create a custom table of impedance and XR ratio values for transformers based upon the kVA. Currently the default values are fixed. If you always use different values, you have to manually change them every time.
