Available Fabrication Hanger Patterns
After enabling the Hanger Placement tool, 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
Rod adjustments allows you to place a family at the top of the hanger rod on Fabrication (ITM) type hangers for scheduling or coordination requirements. The settings for Rod adjustments allows you to control how much the hanger rod is adjusted into structure.
Estimate Point Loads
Estimate Point Loads calculates the weight value of all selected elements by the number of selected hanger supports. The dialog will provide you with the results, allow you to increase the value by adding an adjustment percentage and then gives you the option to apply the results to the eVolve point load parameter. This feature supports both Fabrication (ITM) and Family (RFA) elements.
After hangers have been placed in the model, use these tools to highlight elements in the active view that are in collision with hanger rods.
