MEP Hangers helps Revit® users avoid many headaches

Revit users spend a lot of time manually designing support and hanger systems for ducts, pipes, conduit, and cable trays. By automating lots of routine, time-consuming MEP design tasks, our MEP Hangers plugin solves common headaches that Autodesk® Revit® users face.

In order to take advantage of Autodesk Revit’s broad capabilities, MEP Hangers is specifically designed for Revit only.

We have MEP Hangers for Revit versions as far back as 2018; however, we only support the three latest Revit versions. We highly recommend using one of the three latest Revit versions – that way you get the most recent features, bug fixes, and active support.

Yes. We provide a free, 14-day trial. You can test out MEP Hangers and many of our other tools by downloading our TOOLS4BIM Dock »

Yes. MEP Hangers covers almost all possible situations. Whether you have a horizontal MEP element with horizontal or vertical hangers, a vertical MEP element connected to a vertical structure, or some other arrangement, MEP Hangers can handle it.

Yes. Hangers will automatically adapt to any pipe or duct slope. Hangers will also adapt to sloped surfaces, like roofs, and they will even work even with sloped MEP elements under sloped surfaces.

Yes. Both RVT and IFC links will work. You can specify whether to use the current model, linked model elements, or both in tool settings.

MEP Hangers tool has the functionality to replace ducts and pipes from .ifc file to Revit elements. Then you can place hangers on them. However, currently we do not have functionality to place hangers on .ifc elements without converting them first. Tool also can’t place hangers on MEP elements that are in the linked .rvt file. We hope to add this functionality in the future.

Yes. Every hanger family has a standard set of shared parameters that can easily be read through Revit schedules. That includes things like rod lengths, clamp diameters, unistrut lengths, etc. Even the smallest elements (bolts, nuts, screws) are created as separate families so that they can be accounted for.

Yes. If we get enough requests from our clients, we do add additional families.

Yes. For a family to work with MEP Hangers, it needs to be faced-based and have specific parameters. You can modify your families to meet our standards or use template families that we provide that come with the required parameters. Note that beginner Revit family creators might not be able to create it on their own.

Looking at the design process from the BIM perspective – all parts of the building should be included in the project. The building should be modeled in the software in the same manner as it will be built. All the parts should be included in the model.

Designing mechanical, electrical, and plumbing is only one part of the work in a project. Connecting those services to the building structure is another part. It’s a real headache for engineers, as this is a crucial aspect of the project but painstaking to do manually. Sometimes, MEP element distribution must be revised due to hanger clashes or missing structural parts to which hangers could attach.

If you use our MEP Hangers tool for Revit, then distributing hangers and supports for line-based MEP objects is a breeze. You do not need to do any of that manually. What’s more, the distributed elements will be attached to any type of structure that you predefine, as well.

Since Autodesk Revit does not have an integrated splitting functionality for MEP line-based elements, MEP Hangers also solves that problem, as it can split ducts, pipes, cable trays, or conduits into predefined lengths. This solution also supports IFC format.
