Perform 3D modeling and detailing quickly and effortlessly with a full complement of AutoCAD-compatible drawing tools and palettes.
Project Setup Wizard
Quickly pull in a project's systems, SMACNA standards and equipment to easily start new projects. Make project-specific changes like type of round duct or system labels to make sure your drawings are done right the first time.
Draw in either the 3D or plan view and automatically synchronize all views.
Extensive Library of Fittings and Symbols
Speed up fitting selection and easily draw complex fittings with our streamlined fittings palette. Because attributes such as elbow angle are editable the palette requires fewer items, making it easy to find the part you need.
Fast & Easy Duct Fill and Fitting Placement
Finish your drawings quickly with the ability to auto-size, auto-place, and auto-fill connecting ductwork with the correct material and connectors. Use standard AutoCAD grips to add straight pieces of duct and easily stretch throats or straights.
Control what layers different systems and items are drawn on, automatically ensuring the correct systems are drawn on the right layers and eliminating the need to constantly switch systems while drawing.
Instantly annotate any or all of a project with no manual text placement.
Tight AutoCAD integration
DuctDesigner 3D doesn't just work "on top" of AutoCAD products - it expands AutoCAD's tools and functionality. You'll learn the system quickly because most of the commands are basic AutoCAD commands like move, copy, mirror, delete, undo, and more.
Easy Connection Management
DuctDesigner 3D's Axis Lock lets you connect to duct that has been placed on any angle, regardless of current UCS position.
