This manual is intended for use by Orange Technologies, Inc. Any reproduction or other use without the consent of Orange Technologies, Inc. Patent and Trademark Office by Autodesk, Inc. You can customize specifications to reflect how you design and install ductwork. After you complete the drawing, you can retrieve and analyze this information to generate Bills of Materials for estimating, ordering, shipping, and installation.
It is important that you have a working knowledge of AutoCAD and have completed and understood the instructional materials available for the AutoCAD software before attempting this tutorial. This tutorial is designed to follow an order that reflects how a draftsman would design or draw a duct system. While it would be impossible to highlight every aspect of the program, we believe that after completing these exercises you will have a good working knowledge of CADPIPE.
This tutorial is written under the assumption that you are using a mouse and selecting commands from the toolbars or pull-down menus. This should provide adequate time to discover the time saving benefits from easily drawing one 3D model, one time, and generating as many views and sections as necessary that will automatically be updated every time the model is changed.
It virtually eliminates having to draw and redraw multiple orthographic views. You will not be prompted for an installation serial number.
Remember, if you are running the Demo version, it will expire after 25 days. Included with your software is a drawing called Hvac. Open the drawing called Hvac. When a drawing appears on the screen, you will see that some of it is already completed.
Use this drawing as you work through the tutorial. All system prompts in the HVAC tutorial are in italics and your responses are shown numbered. In addition, the metric equivalent to an imperial measurement appears in brack- ets: Contents Chapter 1. Architectural Features Starting a Run Takeoffs and Flex Duct Generate Reports Collision Checking Chapter 1. These toolbars contain many commonly used commands found in the pull-down menus. Chapter 2.
Architectural Features This chapter will introduce you to important features you can use to create background drawings for your HVAC designs. In many cases, you will be able to secure working drawings from an architect or engineering firm and will not have to draw them. You can control these colors and layers by using the Configure command found on the Arch pull-down menu.
The system is now asking from which side you would like to widen the wall. If you select Left by typing L, the system widens the wall from the left. If you select Right by typing R, the wall will be widened from the right. If you select points at this prompt, the system uses those points as a centerline see Figure Note: Right and left side of the wall is determined by the direction in which you select the two end points.
You can change the color and layer by using the Configure command found on the Arch pull-down menu. Select column A Here you may type a beam number W12 x The Beam Database dialog box appears.
Scroll through the beam names until you can see W12 x To return to plan view select Top View from the View menu. Select the starting point E-1 intersection. Make sure the Width X direction is set to 24 , the Depth Y direction to 48 , and the Elevation to 96 Chapter 3.
This function automatically creates and sizes the many accessory items needed in your HVAC design. With this function you can place grilles, registers, diffusers, dampers, and numerous other accessory items. All items can be reported in the Bill of Materials Accessory reports. This part of the tutorial will show you how to place diffusers on our drawing. Select Rct. The diffuser neck can be sized two ways: by selecting Use C. For this tutorial, enter a size of 8 x 8 inches.
There are also options to place a damper in the diffuser and to add a comment, system tag, and area. This information appears in the Bill of Materials reports, which can be generated when the drawing is complete. By entering a system designator or area label, any reports generated can be sorted by system or area. Place the diffusers. The insertion point of the diffuser will be the lower left-hand corner. Place a Rnd. Neck Diffuser at locations 1, 2, 3, and 4. Neck from the Accs pull-down. Set the Neck Length to 8 and Elevation to Click OK and place the Rect.
Nck diffuser at location 5 see Figure The number designator on the diffusers 1, 2, etc. Refer to Figure for these locations. Chapter 4. Starting a Run This chapter will teach you how to begin drawing a duct layout.
Located on the drawing in the lower left-hand corner you will find UNIT-1, which was created by selecting Fan Unit from the Accs pull down menu. We will begin our duct run by placing a flex connector on the top of the unit see Figure Make sure the Show Flanges box is checked. It is best to turn off most of the text when you begin to draw vertically.
Any text left on will have to be moved in order to read it because the system places it automatically assuming a plan view orientation. When you finish setting these parameters, click OK to exit the Configure Rectangular dialog box. Placing a Flex Connector 1. Select Join to command from the Rect pull-down menu or from the toolbar. To change any dimension, double-click on it in the Fitting Dimensions section. The system automatically places the flex connector and turns Auto-Spec on AS on.
This means the system will correctly size and place the next piece of duct we select. You can see this in the ISO view. Returning to Horizontal To get back to horizontal and continue drawing in plan view, you must select an elbow. For the pur- poses of this tutorial we will use a radius elbow.
The Select Angle dialog box appears, allowing you to select the direction angle for the elbow to return to Horizontal see Figure When you have finished, return to plan view to continue drawing. Click OK.
Chapter 5. Auto-Route will allow you to place multiple straights and elbows without individually selecting each piece. Set the Elbow Angle Selection to Enter. This toggle allows you to enter a specific Elbow Angle to be used in the auto-route.
Set Minimum Straight to 18 Anything less is added to the throat of an elbow. As you drag the cursor, the routing follows and the number of default lengths and leftover distance is displayed on the screen. Select an endpoint along column centerline B.
Drag the auto-route until you end with a full straight joint and pick a point see Figure Chapter 6.
