DUCT DRAWINGS - Design to Fabrication

ZEN - Value Added Services for HVAC Contractors

As a contractor, you want more than material- you want the kind of support and problem solving that make the job go smoothly and profitably. At ZEN, our value added services include preparing Duct Drawings using EastCoast CAD/CAM.

Dependable Error Reduction

ZEN duct drawings eliminate the imprecision and drafting errors of days past, saving you the headache of dealing with ill-fitting pieces and sorting through a jig-saw puzzle of delivered ductwork.

That's a direct savings in time and money, making your job more profitable. Of course, it's about more than software. Experienced personnel are one thing, but at ZEN we consider our draftsmen accomplished at their art.

"We take the blueprints," explained draftsman Stephen Dantone, "and section out the work, detailing what kind of fitting it is, the joint, the gauge- everything about each fitting or piece of duct." "Using software, we number and develop a schedule of everything that is unique about a piece of duct. This enables us to find collisions and minimize design mistakes, ensuring precision fits, including connections and supports."

Direct to Coil Line and Plasma Tables

After duct drawings come back, a second drawing pass provides an exact AutoCAD visualization- different spools, an isometric view of duct elements going up and coming down, complete with duct numbers and tags that label length and diameter. Drafting figures can be sent instantly to fabrication and estimating, even transmitting digital information directly to ZEN's coil line and Vulcan plasma tables.

 

The Last Word in Duct Drawings

EastCoast CAD/CAM software delivers accurate detailing and reporting along with a clear visualization of how the final ductwork will be installed. This ensures HVAC implementation is correct, down to the finest details of the design.
