FAQ: How to Insert Correct Size Hangers in Revit Depending on the Duct Size?

Insert Elements is an Autodesk® Revit® Architecture/Structure/MEP add-on for quick insertion of architectural, structural, mechanical elements (Furniture, Lighting Fixtures, Mechanical Equipment, Structural Connections, Areas, etc.) into predefined positions of Revit model. This Revit app uses built-in and fully customizable rules that are logically related with other objects.

Question that has reached us: “I can get the hangers to insert, but cannot get the hanger to be the correct size for the duct it is supporting.”

Answer: If the hanger size must be the same as duct/pipe size, then during insertion please select parameters which must be pushed to hangers, for example “Width” and “Height”. In this case the values from the ducts/pipes will be pushed to hangers:

Insert Elements-1

Parameter names in ducts/pipes must be the same as in hangers:

Insert Elements-2

As you see, it is very simple to insert correct size hangers depending on the duct using Insert Elements features. You just need to try. Good luck!
