Duct Guardian 1.0.5
Clean and neatly-structured interface
The application is fairly simple to install and work with, enabling even less experienced individuals to handle it without too much effort.
The main window lists the available duct shapes, allowing you to click on the one you wish to further work with, while the ‘Grille Calculator’ helps you determine various sizes and dimensions.
Effortlessly estimate the amount of metal sheet you require for constructing ventilation ducts
Duct Guardian features a wide range of shapes, including cylinders, cones, with various corners or elbows, serving several purposes, all depending on the piece that you are trying to build.
Once you have selected the item you want to use, a dedicated window will appear, allowing you to set the corresponding width, height, depth, radius or angle for the current piece, providing you with a real-time preview of the duct. You can also adjust the size of the connectors, zoom in or out of the image and save the elements to DXF files.
Using the ‘Grille Calculator’, you can input the width and height of the piece, as well as some other details, namely ‘Slice Angle’, ‘Net Distance’, ‘Frame’, or ‘Sheet Thickness’, in order to obtain the values corresponding to the ‘Slice Diagonal’, the ‘Slice Width’ or the ‘Slice Quantity’, saving the information to DXF.
A user-friendly tool for estimating 3D to 2D surface
To summarize, Duct Guardian is a complex yet fairly simple to handle program developed to assist ventilation constructors in determining the amount of metal sheets you require for a job, by fitting the ducts so as to learn the flat surface that 3D designs cover when unfolded.
