Hanger Rod Adjustments

Hanger Rod Adjustments

This feature allows for hanger rods to be extended into structure or to a reference plane and to place an insert family as well. Ultimately giving you an accurate BOM.

Defining Embeds Depth and Material

  1. Name: Name of the rule which is the default grouping
  2. Rod Size: Pick the appropriate rod diameter meant for this rule
    1. This determines which rules show up in the drop-down in the Rod Adjustments Command.
  3. Embed Depth: The value of the Embed Depth from the Family.
    1. This is pulled from the Rod Insert Depth parameter from the family.
  4. Rounding: Rounding can be done to bring rod to even numbers for pre-fabrication
  5. Family Name: Name of the Revit Family element to be placed at the end of the Fabrication rod
  6. Family Type: Name of the Family Type to be placed at the end of the Fabrication Rod
  7. Deck Type: The family type of the deck this rule applies to.
  8. Family File Path: If Family is not found within the project, load from the given path

This section allows you to control which links to look inside of when creating rules for Deck Type

  1. Include Primary Model - This allows you to search inside the current base model.
  2. Loaded Link Models Section - Here you can choose to search inside any links that are loaded in the project.
These definitions are meant to be saved and used across multiple projects

Extending Rods

Accounting for many BIM processes, users can choose to perform processes at different times during their detailing work.

  1. Extend Into Structure: Extend and Embed Rods into Structure above
  2. Extend to Reference Plane: Extend Rods to a given Reference Plane
    1. Chose Reference Plane: If used, select which Reference Plane to extend Rods to
  3. Embed Depth: Option to extend rods into Structure based on the value specified in Embed Configurations.
  4. Rounding: Option to Round rods to the nearest value as specified in Embed Configurations.
  5. Upper Attachment: Option to place defined Revit Family at the endpoint of the hanger rod as specified in Embed Configurations
  6. Structure Inserts: For rods of each diameter, eVolve will perform the above options for each rule.

Embed Depth Only
