Select Support from the Insert or Modify menu to display the Support dialog. A support may be added at any point in the piping (or framing) system, and more than one support is allowed at a point. Once the "Support Type" is specified, the dialog is updated to provide additional fields which are unique to the type of support requested.
With an AutoPIPE model loaded, open a the support dialog screen and press the "Help" button. The table will provide detailed information about the 9 different support typs including bearing direction, and support options for each type of support.
From the online help, only when the first support is entered into a model does the dialog have any default values. Each successive support inserted afterwards, the dialog recalls the previous settings.
