  • Additional improvements for Duct have been provided in this release to address reported issues for full cut length, duct numbering to analyze more parameters for differences, duct crashing with gaming mice, double wall duct, and updated taps.


  • Improved the processing speed for Conduit processing.

  • Added gaskets between straights and fittings on Wireway.

  • Fixed the mismatch error when importing an Excel file into Specification Settings.


  • Additional improvements for Pipe have been provided in this release to address reported issues with direct connect valves, valve adapter connectivity, and new connectivity for “Mechanical Joint Valves”.


  • Additional improvements for PAC have been provided in this release to address reported issues for fittings, transitions, taps, offsets, material, and exporting to FabShop, Camduct, Practicam, and Vicon.

  • Exports to FabShop now use default specifications.


  • Fixed the issue with placing hangers on Ladder tray with clearances.

  • Added the “Project Data” feature.


  • Speed enhancement for creating the Bill of Materials.


Known Issues


If you are downloading/backfilling families for the first time, you may need to run “SetConnectorInfo” in a blank non-SysQue Revit model for SysQue to set the correct Connector End types.  It’s recommended that you do this before you start using the Electrical and Pipe modules.


There is a change that was made to the Revit 2018 API that has caused an issue with creation of         spool drawings that use non-3D views. The other views are not being properly “Cropped”. As a work-around you can create only 3D views and orient them as if they were Plan or Section views.
