  2. Number Circuits Sequentially in Panels

    Allow panels to have the circuits in them numbered sequentially, rather than split odd and even.

  3. Pipe breaks caused by only one set of pipes

    Our plumbing drawings will typically be drawn with supply and drainage on the same drawing. It would be helpful if only the drainage piping caused breaks with drainage piping and the supply piping with only the supply piping. Additionally we place venting on a separate layer. I am thinking that you could place different pipe types into different categories and they would only affect pipe breaks on pipes in their category.

  4. Object Enabler for Navisworks

    Create an object enabler for Navisworks to allow the 3D ductwork, pipes, conduit, and cable tray to be viewed directly from the DWG without requiring it to be exported to an IFC file.

  5. Device Count

    I have noticed that when equipment connections use receptacles or toggle switches, these devices are not included in the device count on the respective device schedules. Can DM be modified to included these devices in the count? This issue has created some confusion on some projects.

  6. Copy distribution panels from job to job in multi-story buildings to serve lease space panels.

    We do a lot of design work in multi-story buildings that require us to show distribution panels on one-lines with load info. Right now I have to create the DPin each job. I would like to be able to copy from job to job with existing loads.

  8. New / Existing Pipe Connection Graphics

    When connecting a new waste pipe to an existing pipe, draw the chamfer between the two using the new layer system (not the existing layer system as it currently does).

  9. Edit Multiple Types of Devices

    Create an "Edit Multiple" command to works on all types of devices. Include only attributes that are common to all types of devices: layer system, elevation.

  10. Allow the option to add circuiting to fixture callout

    Allow the option to put the circuit number or control designation in the bottom of the fixture callout in place of the lamp info.

  11. Make all Panel/Device selections drop downs

    Some windows allow you to choose a panel or device (receptacle, lvd, light, etc) by a drop down box. Others require you to slowly click next/previous. It would be great if all the next/previous windows were converted to the drop down box.

    I feel the benefits are pretty obvious.

  12. Provide a default voltage for the panels in a project.

    Add a check box to set the voltage for a building. If a building is 120/240, then checking a box will set the default for panels, equipment, etc to 120/240v instead of 120/2083p4w.

  13. Circuit and Move Note in one step

    Often when circuiting I find the location DM puts the label is very poor. It would be nice if after inserting the circuit I could move the circuit text without having to stop the circuiting action, move the text, then start the circuiting action again.

  14. enable object snap for Move Note

    Nitpicky feature, but it would be nice to be able to use the object snaps when moving notes so they can be more easily lined up.

  15. Link to PDF File

    In the various DM schedules (light fixtures, receptacles, diffuser, etc), add the option to link the entry to a PDF file. The PDF could be opened from the schedule, or there could be an option to include it as a hyperlink on the device so it can be opened from the AutoCAD drawing.

  16. Excel Add In

    Can we change the way that the low voltage devices, switches, and equipment are handled so that they can be exported in the same manner as the light fixtures and receptacles?

  20. Aim Lamps Separately for Emergency Fixtures

    For fixtures used in the outdoor and egress point-by-point photometrics with two lamps, we need to aim the lamp independently for correct photometrics.
