Bring Objects in Front of Ductwork

Thursday, November 1st, 2018

Hidden lines are generated in Design Master using the standard CAD HIDE command. Unfortunately, this can end up hiding items you want to be visible behind a duct. The solution is to move the items up on the drawing so they are above the duct using the Move Entity Above Ductwork command.

Ribbon: DM HVAC->Drafting->  Move Entity Above Ductwork

Pulldown Menu: DM HVAC->Drafting Tools->Elevations->Move Entity Above Ductwork

There is also a Move Entity Below Ductwork command that you can use to move items below the ductwork if you want them to be hidden.
