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 fixtures from Design Master Electrical on your HVAC drawings for coordination with your diffuser plan.

To coordinate the diffusers on an HVAC drawing with the light fixtures in a Design Master Electrical project, go to
Ribbon: DM HVAC→Diffusers→  Coordinate Diffusers and Light Fixtures
Pulldown Menu: DM HVAC→Diffusers→Coordinate Diffusers and Light Fixtures

Select Electrical Database to Transfer Light Fixtures From Dialog Box

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

The database file name will start with dm_elec. The extension will be .dm. There may be a project name included at the end of the file name, 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 button, the Light Fixture Coordination dialog box will appear.

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