I had reports with incorrect hanger rod diameters for years using CADmep. It drove me nuts to print a report and then change the rod sizes by hand before giving it to purchasing.
The problem was that the rod size was tied to the hanger not to the pipe so when insulation is added to the pipe the hanger would oversize but so would the rod. I have since fixed my hangers and they now report out correctly and here is how you can do the same.
Custom buttons can save a lot of time by automating repetitive workflows. This video will guide you through building a custom palette button for tagging diffusers but the same would apply many different workflows.
Here is the code for the button we will be creating: ^C^C^P(MapFilter “#5025=#34″)(princ)(ctext “Diffuser-Tag”)(princ)
More can be found on the filter in this code by searching the CADmep help file for “MapFilter”.
Put your own images on your scripted button assemblies.
There are times in the MEP modeling industry that we need to create a structural model and CADmep is a very good tool for this. So let’s take a look at how we can quickly and efficiently build our structural model. Continue reading
AutoCAD workspaces can be a great way to organize your drawing environment based on the task you’re currently working. Here is a short “how-to” on creating a AutoCAD workspace. Continue reading
