Design Master Wish List

The current releases are DM Electrical RT 2.0, DM Electrical 8.6, 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 2.1, DM Electrical 8.7, 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. Features marked as "Planned" will be available in these releases.

  1. Update impedances based upon conduit material

    Be able to automatically update the impedance in a wire based upon the conduit material type.

    Currently you have to create a separate wire configuration for each conduit material type.

  2. Equipment airflow available

    Set the available CFM for a piece of equipment. If this value changes, update the airflow assigned in the downstream ducts.

  3. Edit multiple devices--select from list

    When editing multiple devices, be able to select from a list in addition to being able to select from the drawing. Equipment currently works this way. Expand it to other types of devices.

  4. Add justification options to DM labels

    Be able to have labels set to right justified or bottom justified, rather than always being top-left justified. This way they will update correctly when the value changes during the design.

  6. 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.

  8. Layer Control Commands for Photometrics

    It would be nice if you could add layer control commands for the associated photometric calculation layers (both general and egress) to turn them on and off like you have for room layers and duct centerlines. The boundaries, foot candles and contours can really clutter up the drawing. Also make it so that when you need to run a general or egress calculation the respective layers will turn back on automatically.

  10. Be able to move light fixture callout during fixture insertion

    After inserting a light fixture, prompt for the location of the light fixture callout. This feature exists for the callout style that is not directly linked to the fixture. The request is to make it work for callouts that are part of the fixture.

  15. Button to reset equipment creation dialog to default values

    When you create equipment, the information from the last piece of equipment is remembered and filled in. Add a "Reset to Defaults" button to the create equipment dialog box that would clear the information and reset it to its original state.
