  3. From the Multi-Service Bearer window, specify requirements and click OK.
Choosing your Placement settings and options

Placement Tab

  1. Select your Profile. If one has not been defined yet, you can go to Trapeze Settings and build one from scratch.
  2. Mode: Your options are to place trapeze hangers on the entire connected path, up to the next change in direction, or just a single trapeze hanger.

Options Tab

The options for "Distance Below Level" and "Linked Model" are only available if you are using a Family (RFA) based trapeze hanger profile.
  • Nearest Structure Overhead - The trapeze hanger will automatically attach to the nearest structural element whether the structural element is within the active project or a linked model. *This is the native behavior for Fabrication (ITM) based hangers so this is your only option when using this type of hanger element.
  • Distance Below Level - This option is only enabled for Family (RFA) based trapeze hangers. Fabrication (ITM) based trapeze hangers have a similar option using the Hanger Rod Adjustments feature.
    The value entered into this field will offset the top attachment for the hanger below the structural component.
  • Linked Model - This option is only enabled for Family (RFA) based trapeze hangers. This option allows you to select which reference model to attach the hanger too. *The reference model must have structural components at the hanger locations.
  • Reference Plane - If a reference plane exists, you can choose the plane to extend the hanger rods to. This option is supported for both Fabrication (ITM) and Family (RFA) based hangers.
