Hanger Toolbar

Hanger Placement

After enabling the Hanger Placement tool, using crossing window selection method, select runs of duct and/or pipe you want hangers to be placed on. Hangers will be placed based on spacing requirements predefined in Specifications. Note that final placement of your hangers is also managed by the collision adjustment setting.

Multi-Service Bearer and Bearer Width Rounding

Multi-Service Bearer will allow you to place a single support for multiple services such as rack piping. These bearers are modeled at 2" increments automatically. If you manually stretch a bearer then you can use the rounding button to round the bearer up to the next 2" increment.

Rod Adjustments

Rod adjustments allows you to place a family at the top of the hanger rod for scheduling or coordination requirements. The settings for Rod adjustments allows you to control how much the hanger rod is adjusted into structure.

Clash Detection

After hangers have been placed in the model, use these tools to highlight elements in the active view that are in collision with Fabrication hanger rod as well as the hanger rod itself.

These tools cannot highlight objects within a reference model
