With pipe hangers (and to a lesser extent duct hangers), you want to make sure you're using the correct type.  I'd suggest go to a manufacturer like cooper b-line or anvil, find your hanger(s) that you want to use, and model them --- or you can create them without the manufacturer's dimensions if you just want the rough size and shape of the hanger.  Not sure how in depth the application is in terms of adding upper attachments (which you can create as separate families) or accessories like insulation shields or how it handles stacked pipes.

Thanks Sandleaz for your suggestion. We will try to provide inbox hanger as from the manufactory in next version. However, current user could also create their own hanger and use it in current version. And the key value of this tool is to help use auto layout the hanger and manage the connection with the pipe/duct/cable tray or conduit.
