Move/Copy Equipment to new equipment group

Recommended Posts

Hey I was trying to move or copy the equipment from one group to another. I need to make a bid alternate so I'll have a different equipment schedule for each. So there will be some equipment that will be the same on both. Is there a way I can do this without recreating all the equipment in the new group?

If the equipment is on the drawing, you have to copy it in the drawing. If it is in the database, you have to use the "Copy Equipment in Database" command. Once you have a copy, you can then assign it to a new group.

 

Alternatively, you can also use the "Utilities->Copy or Backup Project" command to make a second copy of the project in a new folder. Do the alternate design there. Eventually you'll end up using just one or the other of the projects based upon the design you choose to move forward with.

So If I have a group of equipment that is complete and I need to duplicate it multiple times. I can not simply complete the group and copy the group (as I have found), but rather I must make a new group and copy each piece of equipment one by one reassign to the new group then it is part of a new "system". Could the copy group tool be made to duplicate a group and all of it's associated equipment contents? Also I find myself switching from screen to screen trying to see the status of an equipment list group, Could a add/new/delete tool be added all on a single screen so that the back and fourth could be eliminated?
