After Website HVAC VIETNAM (https://hvacvn.com) put the wind pipe drawing tool online for all members to download for free in 2007, immediately received a positive response from all members and has reached 30,000 downloads at the time points in December 2009 and continuously increased up to this point.
Indeed, this is a very useful, very useful tool for drawing wind pipes, it helps M&E engineers quickly complete duct drawings and look at the drawings very professionally!
But not everyone can be quick to use this wind pipe drawing tool immediately, so HVAC VIETNAM has received many emails and calls asking about how to use wind pipe drawing tools. So for your convenience to use and optimize the usage process, I write the user manual sent to you as a gift to HVAC community Vietnam :).

1. Bring the wind pipe drawing toolbar to the AutoCAD screen.
After installing the Wind Pipe Drawing Tool (see the installation instructions here) you will see only a few hoses appear, but that may not be your usual tool, so you will need to include tools commonly used on the screen of AutoCAD for more convenience. You do the following:
Right click on any wind pipe drawing toolbar, at this time you will see a menu as shown below, please click on the commonly used toolbars: SAVAME-COLOR, SAVAME DUCT-2D-1, SAVAME- DUCT-2D-3
After bringing the above tools to the AutoCAD screen, rearrange it to your liking so that it is tidy, you can arrange them by holding down your mouse and dragging them to the position you want to arrange.
2. Activate the Wind Pipe Drawing Tool.
To start the first drawing command you need to press the Load button in the SAVAME-COLOR bar to activate the drawing program, you only do this once when you open the AutoCAD file. When the command line appears:
Command: (load "nnam")
At that time you can draw.
3. Draw straight air ducts
To draw a straight duct, enter the command line: b1 Or select the icon for straight duct in the SAVAME DUCT-2D-1 bar as shown above.
Next, you click on the screen AutoCAD, enter the dragon of the wind pipe, press Enter and then enter the length of the duct or start any point on the AutoCAD screen, now you will see a rectangular frame, that is straight duct .
Extend: You can use this tool to draw rectangles, squares. Extremely fast and accurate!
4. Reduce steadily, reduce deviation
a) Decreased from Square -> Square
You enter the command: b2 Or select the steady reducer icon In the SAVAME DUCT-2D-1 toolbar, click on the AutoCAD screen and enter the duct width 1, press Enter and then enter the duct width 2, press Enter, and then select Middle or Decrease to the right (Right ), left (Left), continue to press Enter and then enter the length of the decrease. If you cannot specify the length of the reducer you can leave the tool to calculate by default.
b) Decreased from Square -> Round
You enter the command: b4, click on the AutoCAD screen and enter the duct width 1, press Enter and then enter the duct width 2, continue to press Enter and then enter the length of the reduction section. If you cannot specify the length of the reducer you can leave the tool to calculate by default.
