Coordinate Diffusers and Light Fixtures

If your company is using both Design Master HVAC and Design Master Electrical, it is possible to insert the light fixture from Design Master Electrical on your HVAC drawings for coordination with your diffuser plan.

To coordinate the diffuser on an HVAC drawing with the light fixtures in a Design Master Electrical project, go to

DM HVAC->Diffusers->Coordinate Diffusers and Light Fixtures

Select Electrical Database to Transfer Light Fixtures From

Diffusers--Select Electrical Database to Transfer Light Fixtures dialog box

Select the electrical database from the project you are working on and press Open.

The database file name will start with "dm_elec". The extension will be ".dm". There might be a project name included at the end of the file, depending upon how the project was originally set up. The database file will be in the same folder as the drawings with the light fixtures on them. The specific location of the database will vary depending upon how your company arranges its project folders.

After you press the Open button, the Light Fixture Coordination dialog box will open.

Diffusers--Coordinate Diffusers and Light Fixtures.Light Fixture Coordination dialog box

Select the drawing with which you would like to coordinate and press OK. The light fixtures from the selected database will be inserted in the current drawing.
