Below you can find the class descriptions for the Design Master User Conference 2011. The classes are intended to provide advanced training; we expect that everyone at the conference will already be familiar with the basics of our software. The classes will explore the features and options available in Design Master HVAC, Electrical, and Plumbing.

The conference will be held at the Cincinnati Airport Marriott on September 15 and 16, 2011. Visit our conference page to learn more or to register.

Electrical Classes

Project Database Management: Learn how your drawing and your database files are related, how problems between the two can occur and how to fix those problems, and how our system for storing your project’s information allows you to recover work that is lost when AutoCAD crashes. (60 minutes)

3D-BIM: Learn how to create 3D models for interference checking with other disciplines. We will cover the new 3D features that have recently been added, including how to draft conduits and cable trays, exporting to an IFC file, and importing your design into Revit and Navisworks. (60 minutes)

Circuiting and Homeruns: Learn about circuiting devices, drawing homeruns, and automatically inserting loops. (60 minutes)

Calculations: Learn about the built-in electrical calculations, including voltage drop, fault calculations, and wire sizing. (60 minutes)

One-Line Riser Diagrams: Learn how to use the one-line riser diagram feature. We will cover all the tips and tricks necessary to make this feature more productive than drafting your riser by hand. (60 minutes)

Takeoffs and Photometrics: Learn about the information that takeoffs can provide for you about your projects and how to use it for estimating. (30 minutes)

Photometrics: Learn about modeling your lighting for indoor and outdoor photometric calculations. (30 minutes)

Master Schedules: Learn how to use master schedules to streamline the process of setting up new projects. (60 minutes)

Customization: Learn about Design Master Electrical’s customization options.  We will cover basic customization options that you might already be familiar with as well as more advanced options that you might not have discovered. (60 minutes)

Tips and Tricks: A rapid-fire class covering tips and tricks for using all of the various features in the software. Expect this class to wander all over as we explore little features that will help you get a lot more out of Design Master Electrical. (60 minutes)

3D-BIM: Learn how to create 3D models for interference checking with other disciplines. We will cover the long-standing 3D features that have existed in the software, then explore the features we recently added, including hangers, multiple alignment points, exporting to IFC files, and importing the IFC file into Revit and Navisworks. (60 minutes)

Heating and Cooling Load Calculations: Learn about the load calculation feature and options, including how to integrate the output with your duct design. (120 minutes)

Ductwork Drafting: Learn tips and tricks for drafting ductwork. We will cover all of the ductwork insertion buttons and show you the situations where they come in handy. (60 minutes)

Ductwork Calculations: Learn about duct sizing options and duct pressure drop calculations. We will cover all three methods of duct sizing and look at the new pressure drop schedule. (60 minutes)

Diffusers: Learn tips and tricks for both drafting diffusers and managing your diffuser schedule. (60 minutes)

Plumbing Isometrics: Learn about creating automatic plumbing isometrics. (30 minutes)

Plumbing Sizing: Learn how to automatically calculate pipe flows and how you can use that information to size pipes. (30 minutes)

Customization: Learn about Design Master HVAC and Plumbing”s customization options.  We will cover basic customization options that you might already be familiar with as well as more advanced options that you might not have discovered. (60 minutes)
