  • Works for Rectangular Ducts
    Dan Miller | February 19, 2016 Verified Download (What's this?)

    It works ok, would be nice if a hanger was available for round ducts as well. Would also be nice if you could set it up for example, put a hanger within 12" of each fitting, and every 10'. The work around I do for rectangular is have it add just 1 hanger, then copy it along the line where you want them. Can place them manually using the duct fitting command, but It is not parametric with the duct you connect to - need to specify hanger width, elevation, and anchor elevation. For the price I can't complain, would like to see a round hanger option(hanger strap CL on the pipe to the ceiling), as well as the ability to manually add them parametrically, and have it automatically connect to bottom of duct, and place the hanger on the level above.

  • good version
    Muhammed Alaa | September 17, 2015

  • Needs some improvements.
    Roberto Zenteno | May 09, 2015 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Hello. I have purchased and it seams like a promising add-in. It needs improvements. 1. an option to use Metric or Imperial. 2. After applying Duct Hangers and they are erased to change the separations It will not re-apply or re-insert on the same segment of duct-work. Please update and will give a higher star rating.
