Many people's mind work off of Feet & Inches when inputing in Elevations. Having to convert that to a decimal value so that the software can read the elevation is an EASY step but it is also an EXTRA one as well. If you toggle the "Enter Imperial Dims in (ft)" setting on within the database, it fixes this issue but it also changes the input of the dims within a fitting. Could we get the dims and the elevations to be two different toggle settings?
Thank you for your consideration,
A lot of options have been removed from linear nest pipe reports set-up. Like to see same options that are available in other IRP set ups. Spool name and item end are two big ones.
With the spec table / service, you have "versioning" functionality, which allows you to keep track of changes tied to that spec / service. It would be nice to have something simliiar added to the Item reports, Ancillary Reports, etc., where you can quickly reference notes attached to that report.
This would save a lot of time when you are having to go back to an old report, and see how it is functioning manually. If the versioning function was added, I could type in custom notes which would easily display what filters, merge settings, and calculations used to create the report.
Straight patterns have the beading option (#19) with the ability to declare "Yes" or "No"
I would like to see this option incorporated on all CID patterns.
Having this would eliminate additional materials or the use of odd gauges.
Currently when you annotate a designline the text comes in where is wants to. It would be nice if we could control the placement of the text so that we can move it off of background objects to make it legible on prints. This could allow us to use the designline line and its annotation of schematic design drawings without have to re-annotate a drawing if we have to un-fill and refill the 3D items.
Have the ability to multi-edit the Serivce Types for any column. Example would be to set the Layer Tag 1 all to the same. Multi Select which items wouild use the same color in a second selection set and so on. This would be a huge time saver for Service Setup.
We have mentioned it before at user group meetings. We (all users that attended) would like to more control and options on the Renumber command. If there are identical parts but have a slight difference such as one has a note or one is on a different service, these will renumber as separate items. There are times, such as in spooling, where we don't care about those differences and would like both items to have the same number. Once we brought this up, the command SHOWMETHEDIFFS was added, but that doesn't do anything to change it. We know the differences, and just want them renumbered accordingly.
It would save a lot of time if we could have the option to remove services by group name, instead of deleting them one by one. Whenever a Job is complete, we export the services then delete them. It takes a long time to delete multiple services manually, espeically when I update our standard services for the estimaters profiles.
Bug: Whenever you change the service template within the "Edit Service Template" window and click CANCEL, it still saves the template service change. Just something to be wary of...
This one is kinda of out of the Norm and dont think many develpores do this, but it would be insightful if we could stay informed of when service packs /updates would be released and what is being worked on within them. The thought came to mind with the 2014 release and some known bugs being fixed and patiently waiting for the service pack before I bring it live in the Office and Shop.
If Autodesk owns all three pieces of this software and the software allows for the option to import and export pipe insulation graphic and property data, why doesn't it work? Both TSI and Enceptia are unable to make this work.
Would you benefit from an API in Autodesk Fabrication CADmep, ESTmep or CAMduct? If so, please share with us your thoughts on the potential benefits this could provide? How might you use an API and what kind of API would you like?
1) To have the ability to specify seismic rod types eg: strut, cable etc.
2) Make the pattern "able" to stretch individual rods independantly. And have them stretch in an elevation view to change the brace angle.
3) Seismic attachment needs the ability for multiple points. Such that larger braces need 2 attachment points per brace.
This would make the seismic worlds better and also be accurate to how and what we draw.
