The file is too large (2.8mb) to post here, this site will only accept files up to about 1.5mb. If you send me a e-mail address I will send you the file. I also have a lot of other items drawn from fixture carriers to trane rtu's. in all the files are about 1.5gb.

Hi Pat - I applaud your effort to make MvParts available to others, but I am wondering how your file got to be so big? Are you putting a lot of detail into your model blocks? One of things I see all the time are blocks that come over from Inventor. So you make the part using a lot of the cool modeling capabilities in Inventor, save it a SAT file and then find out its 2 Meg/block. That makes for bloated drawings, poor performance, and the inability to transmit because everything is too big. What happens is that it takes AutoCAD a lot of resources to make the curves, fillets etc. We are working with the AutoCAD team to address some of these issues.

Can't speak for Pat or the size issue (our RTU's are about 200 kb with all the goodies), but you need to realize that RTU's are complicated. There is a lot of geometry that is critical for good design. Not only height, width, depth, but you could have supply, return, exhaust & OA openings, multi-height roofcurbs with crossbars, adapters, hoods, fans, access panels and clearances. Add in all the various connectors and you have a complicated object. (Wish we could have multiple Layer Keys or Nested MvParts, to turn on/off clearances, curbs, hoods, etc).

Multiple Layers nested into MvParts would be a big help. I now have to create a block for a rooftop, a block for the curb, and a block for the clearances so I could get a correct display.

J - I don't consider the description you gave as being complicated - ABS should and does handle creating objects as you describe with a minimum of overhead. The complication I am referring to is using fillets, blends, booleans where you don't really need to. After all, who do you think created those rather large pumps (in terms on drawing size) that you get out of the box? We are working towards MvParts that are assemblies for future releases.

Know what you mean. I'll be looking forward to future releases. Thank you.

Peter, where can I find the procedures to create I -Drop web pages from my content?

Hi Pat - It's pretty easy... 1. From the MEP Common menu, select Catalog Editor. 2. Open the Catalog that you want to publish. 3. Pick the button at the top "Publish to Web" - 4th button from the left 4. Designate the location of the webpage (I usually put in a scatch folder under My Documents until I am happy with it). You guys have a great website, BTW. I hope this helps!

Pat,

Sorry that it has taken so long to reply back. My e-mail is andyfielder@johnegreen.com. You stated that the file is 2.8mb. This is the size of all the no-hub parts right? Thank you very much.
