2.5GBIMSPropDisplays Properties of chosen sprinklerDoesn't label each property yet
57
2.5GBIMSReplaceHdsGBIMSRHReplaces one sprinkler for anotherChoose head symbol to be replaced, then choose symbol to replace it with, and then select group of sprinklers that you want to replace. It will filter out and replace only the ones you tell it to.
58
3GBIMA3DHangerRodGBIMAHRPlaces hanger rod and "Halo"Draws a line from the 3/4 point of your pipe up to a plane that you define. Optionally, it will draw a "Halo" that represents that hangers "zone of influence' on the slab. Meaning that no other inserts can occupy that "Halo' space
59
3GBIMRod3DCreates 3D sweeps at Hanger Rods
60
3GH1Places hanger tick2D Drafting Only - Not a 3D tool - this will be automatic when the Automatic hanger features are rolled out.
61
3GBIMHA3DHangerRodGBIMAHRDraws Hanger Rods from pipe to a ceiling planeHas a dialog with questions regarding attachments etc.
62
3GBIMHATick1Places hanger Tick at quarter point of EVERY pipe in the dwg
63
3GBIMHCutItPlaces "cut" labels on selected hangers
64
3GBIMHFinishAutomatic hanger tickPlaces hanger tick at base of selected hanger rods
65
3GBIMHReplaceHangerRodReplaces chosen hanger rodsCreated to replace old version rods to new version. Probably won't need this unless you're working on a very old dwg.
66
3GBIMHUnLabelErases all hanger labels
67
4GBIMAutoSprinklerConnectionGBIMASCConnects all selected heads to the nearest pipe.Connects all selected heads to the nearest pipe.
68
4GBIM ASCGBIMASCAutomatically draws a drop and armover.Choose heads that need connecting. Heads will search for pipe and connect to the nearest pipe it finds.
69
4GBIMADropArmGBIMADAAutomatically draws a drop and armover.Draws a pipe, (last one it finds named "drop", vertically from a chosen sprinkler to the chosen branchline elevation, then draws a pipe, (last one it finds named "armover") horizontally to the chosen branchline.
70
4GBIMAFlexDropArmGBIMAFDAAutomatically draws a flex drop and armover.Same as above only looks for pipe named "flex drop" rather than "drop"
71
4GBIMAutoRNxxxAutomatically Draws Riser NippleDraws pipe between the closes points of 2 pipes chosen by the user. Draws it with the size indicated by "xxx"
72
4GBIMConnectAutomatically Draws a Flex Drop from Pipe to HeadPick a pipe and pick a head. It draws a pipe(named "Flex Drop") directly from endpoint on pipe to insert point on sprinkler. Careful it will draw from any line to any block...
73
4GBIMConvertGBIMCConverts lines drawn on GBIMConstruction layer to a GCad pipe
74
4GBIMCountitCalculates footagesCalculates footages of each type of pipe, reports to user with message boxes.
75
4GBIMCalcPrepGBIMCPPrepares system for Hyd. CalcsNodes the system, validates piping. Colors piping to ease finding unconnected pipes.
76
4GBIMCutItGBIMCiPlaces "cut" labels on selected pipe segments
77
4GBIMElevateItPlaces an Elevation DimensionPlaces an Elevation Dimension at a point picked by the user. Some call it a "star" dimension.

79
4GBIMFabLineCreates a path for a workflow."Invisible Pipe" to connect floating gridmains etc. for
80
4GBIMFindShortsFinds and marks all pipe that is shorter than a specified lengthMany issues can arise from small "fragments' of pipe, Nodes won't connect etc. This is a way to find really short pipes that may be causing connectivity problems.
81
