CADvent: A tool for the 21 st century

CADvent is a design and drafting program that increases workplace efficiency. By looking at the history of CADvent, we can understand how the program evolved into its current form.

The predecessor to CADvent was V–CAD, a program that started in 1992 as an academic thesis. Sheet metal contractors, mechanical contractors and design engineers needed a tool that would enable them to design in 3 dimensions, calculate sound and pressure drop, and create a Bill of Materials to calculate price and material quantities. When V–CAD was exhibited at a large industry trade show in Europe in March 1994, design and organization expectations were raised to new heights.

Through an initial cooperation with Lindab, the program designers used measured values instead of formulae for specific engineering data required by the program. These calculations have proven to be consistent with measurements in other facilities.

Today’s CADvent is the result of the use of worldwide Beta testers and continual program upgrades to improve user–friendliness and functionality.

CADvent uses the following criteria as a product development guideline:

It must be easy to learn It must be quick to design a project in 3D It must be possible to add parts to a system It must be possible to radically change a duct system easily and quickly No programs other than CADvent should be required to design a duct system System components in CADvent must have the same properties as real–world components Data for calculation must be based on tested and measured values If a system can be drawn in CADvent, it can be built System information must be updated automatically when components are changed Functions such as advanced calculation methods and reports should be fully integrated

CADvent provides several possibilities in designing a duct system, enabling the user to work within CADvent based on his or her existing knowledge of CAD drawing and HVAC duct systems. For example, if the user is unsure of which air device is most appropriate for a given space, the user can choose one and then later change to another and recalculate in a matter of minutes.

Starting a CADvent Drawing

An architectural drawing is usually needed as a reference for drawing a ventilation system. It is possible to work directly in the architectural drawing file or to use the architectural drawing as an external reference file in the CADvent drawing.

Architectural Drawing as External Reference File

Before inserting the architectural drawing, it is suggested to create a layer that the drawing will be inserted on:

1. Open a new AutoCAD drawing.

2. Open the AutoCAD "Layer Properties Manager" dialog box.

3. Create a new layer.

Note: If you want the XREF layer to be identified with the name of the floor, name it "A---XREF---name of floor" or any combination of letters and numbers that is 11 digits before the name of the floor! This

way, anytime the correspondent floor is made invisible, the architectural drawing will be frozen too. (See also CADvent Settings – Floor Set Up)

4. Make this new layer current.

5. Click OK in the "Layer Properties Manager" dialog box.

Settings for the CADvent Drawing

Before you begin drawing ductwork, it is recommended to decide the settings to use.

Floor Setup

(See CADvent Settings – Floor Setup)

Project Settings

Click on the Project Settings icon in the ‘Settings’ toolbar. Select a Layer Template (for editing/creating a Layer Template see Advanced Project Settings – Creating a Layer Template). Select a System Name to be current in the drawing among the available ones or create a new one (click “New” button) and then make it current. Select a System Type and a Floor to be current in the drawing among the available ones. Set a value for the Object Resolution (12 is a recommended value). Note: Small Object Resolution values are recommended because the resolution effects CPU performance, regeneration time, reduces load on math co-processor, etc. Check the Show Unconnected Edges box to have arrows showing out of unconnected endpoints. Click OK to close the Project Settings dialog box. (See also CADvent Settings – Project Settings)

Drawing a ductwork

The product selection functions and the drafting capabilities of CADvent make it a very powerful and flexible tool for drawing a duct system. The following operations are suggested in an order that doesn't necessarily have to be sequential but that is, very frequently, the most obvious one.

Insert Diffusers

(See CADvent Ventilation – Component File (Product Manager) and Air Outlet Selection From the Product Manager Library)

Set Elevation

Set the drawing's current working elevation by:

1. Clicking on the Set Elevation button in the ‘Settings’ toolbar and typing the elevation in the command

prompt

- or -

2. Using the Set Elevation by Object button in the ‘Settings’ toolbar to take the elevation's new value

from an existing object selected on the drawing.

Select Duct Components

1. Manually select products from the Lindab toolbars (See Drawing Method 1 and Drawing Method 2)

- and/or -

2. Use CADvent assembling and modifying commands to complete the drawing (See Continue From…,

CADvent Assemble and CADvent Modify).

Duct Design & Calculation

Insert System Starting Point

Set the logical starting point of the system by:

Inserting a Start Symbol (See CADvent Calc & Estimate – Inserting a Start Symbol)

- or -

Step 4:

Click now on the button Update to refresh the changed setting into the domain Current settings.

Step 5:

Click on the button OK to take over the accomplished changes into the drawing. The supply ductwork is now shown in grey (Colour 8) while the exhaust air is still shown in blue, because we assigned no colour to it. CADvent therefore takes the colour from the default setting. Repeat now the steps 1 to 5 fro the exhaust ductwork.

NOTE: All new drafted components in the system AHU1 will be drafted in the changed new colour settings.

Set elevation by object

The function of this command is basically the same like the Set elevation command. But in this command you don’t write an elevation, but you choose the elevation from another object. This command is very useful, if you have to draw a duct system in different sizes but don’t want them to go over or under a specific elevation like in a suspended ceiling.

This command changes the elevation set in the Project Settings dialogue by clicking on an object. The default setting for the elevation will be taken over from this object as new default elevation.

Drawing

Construction method 1 – Drawing a duct system manualy

With this method we will show how to draw a duct system with the manual commands (yellow buttons). It is very manageable, because the steps are very detailed and you can check every step. On the other side it takes a little bit longer, because you don’t take automatically the default settings to draw, but choose every component detailed by type, product and sizes.

Draw round ducts and fittings with fixed sizes

It is a good method, if you are not yet so familiar with the automatic and advanced settings functions. Select the wished duct components by clicking on the yellow command button (Manual selection) in one of CADvent’s toolbars. Insert the component to the duct system by clicking on the insertion point in the drawing
