107
4GFLSLPlaces sprinklers along a line. Same as above only sprinklers are spaced at user defined max spacing.
108
4GLSL Places sprinklers along a line. The user defines the maximum spacing and then picks 2 points in which sprinklers will be placed. This routine will then determine the number of sprinklers and place them at even increments along said line, with the heads at each "¼ Pointed". It places the "current" sprinkler.
109
4GBIMLineLayoutPlaces sprinklers along a line. User chooses any amount of "construction lines" and then choose a max spacing. The routine will then perform a "GLSL see above" on every construction line.
110
4HCadReplaceHdsReplaces HydraCad heads with GCad HeadsMost, but not all HCAD symbols are replaced with similar GCAD heads. The HCAD heads are NOT erased
111
4GQLOCPlaces circles along a line.Circles will be placed along a line defined by user picking two points. Like placing heads.
112
5GBIMNodePlaces node symbols Places node symbols in increments of 1 at points selected by user.
113
5GBIMNodePrefixPrefix can (should) be a letter. eg: A1 A2 A3 etc.
114
5GBIMUnNodeErases all the nodesAnd I mean ALL of them
115
5GBIMNodeResetDon't put a letter in here
116
5GBIMSHCCalcItCreates SHC calc fileOptionally opens SHC with this file. Make sure the dwg has been "LP'd" as it will crash if not.
117
5GBIMViewXDataShow properties of GBIM componentShow properties of pipes and heads etc.
118
5GBIMCalcitCalcs the systemNodes EVERY pipe in the dwg file. Calcs work but there is a lot of nodes. After the system calcs, the unflowing nodes and pipes are remoced from the report. Like pieces of pipe that are flowing the same amount of water are combined.
119
6Experimental or unused commandsIn Progress below this line (or use at your own risk...)
120
