Kommentare: H2X is a fantastic software. I foundH2X very intuitive. It feels like a 21st century software and has an app like appeal, It is very easy and quick to use and takes a lot less time to teach new engineers how to use the software. I have used H2X on several projects . Generally I have used it for sizing domestic water systems and the associated plant items, the speed and simplicity in using the software defiantly makes my life a bit easier. It's a very comprehensive design software which I would recommend anyone to try.

Vorteile:

Personally I found H2X very intuitive. A computer literature engineer could pick up the software in a day with no training. I like the flexibility in design, for example you can change the piping material or velocities across the whole project in a few clicks, alternatively you can manual change individual sections. Being cloud based and not being tied down to a specific desktop is very useful. The ability to output to Revit is a fantastic time saver.

Nachteile:

The way it outputs the notes in the results page is limiting. Ideally you would be able to drag and drops the notes so it's cleaner, as in a busy drawing it can be difficult to read. Sometimes the error warnings may not be pertinent to the project for some reason, but there is not an option to hide or turn these off. However, if you submit the calcs to the client and their is a big yellow safety warning, it makes them nervous. I think it should be possible to turn on/off the warnings.

H2X calculates

5 vor 7 Monaten

Kommentare: H2X has proved to be a useful and powerful tool to add to our office. The basic operation of the program is easy to adopt and the learning curve is reasonably linear. Like every program, there are tricks a tips to increase productivity and ease of use. The friendly and helpful staff are more than willing to help you adapt and progress with your operation of H2X.

Vorteile:

H2X is an easy program to learn and use. The user interface is designed with an intrinsically logical progression of functions and operations. The calculations can be performed at any point during the design development to capture design errors and the effects of alterations immediately. The ability to select and fix pipe, fitting and fixture details and selections is very useful for design proofing and fault finding in new and existing service designs. Uploading and manipulating .pdf background documents is also easy and hassle free. New levels and relevant information are easy to add into the project. Scaling of .pdf background documents is easily done with a high degree of accuracy. Bearing in mind that a .pdf document is an image file with little intrinsic data relating to line accuracy or drafting limitations, H2X willingly creates usable design models with limited fuss. H2X is capable of calculating pressure systems to many different national and international design standards. The selection of design standard can be changed and recalculated at any point within the design process, the projects can be copied and saves as parallel models thereby allowing for side-by-side comparison calculations as required.

Nachteile:

There are no warnings within the planning tab advising of the potential to move .pdf backgrounds within the H2X model, nor is there an option (that we found) to lock the .pdf back grounds into place. While we understand that H2X is a stand alone calculation program with output drawing frames to showcase H2X, it would be useful to have more flexibility with regard to drawing output framing and title blocks. The output drawings are centered about the H2X model as a standard and do not allow for nonstandard drawings or plot layouts that have additional information that displaces the model information. We understand that this is a web based program that enables H2X to be centrally controlled and located, however this is also an issue for those users with unstable / unreliable internet connectivity. H2X does not offer (within the trial version) an option for local installation, work and save on and of models.

A software that makes calculation easier

4 letztes Jahr

Vorteile:

This software provides different calculation methods and can provide all the calculation result that may be rrequired.

Nachteile:

Sometimes it's a little bit hard to change things. For example, if i want to increase the pipe size to minimise the friction loss, i will need to select all the pipe one by one ( they are separated by the fittings).

Antwort von H2X

letztes Jahr

Hi Milly, Thanks very much for your feedback, we really appreciate it! We remember you mentioning this to us and because of the inefficiencies you experienced we have added a 'minimum pipe size' feature that will mean you never need to do this again. You can edit the minimum pipe size in Settings > Flow Systems. Also, using our 'select similar' feature, you can quickly edit the properties for multiple pipes or fixtures all at once. To select similar, firstly left click on the fixture or pipe and then right click and the select similar box should appear, here you can enter properties for fixture groups or pipes. I hope this helps, don't hesitate to reach out if you need anything or have any other ideas for new features.

Kommentare: I had the pleasure of a free trial for the software after seeing it advertised on LinkedIn and having a positive discussion and interactive training with both [SENSITIVE CONTENT]. I have used the software on two projects, a residential project and a care home, it has been a pleasure to use and I will defiantly not be changing back to previous pieces of software I have used.

Vorteile:

The complete software package was a breath of fresh air compared to alternative hydraulic calculation software's on the market. The usability of the system was effortless compared to it's competitors in the UK. It is a free flowing piece of software which allows the user (on the basis the user have a good knowledge of Public Health Engineering) to design, distribute and calculate domestic water services simply with a few clicks of a button.

Nachteile:

The only piece of the software which confused me slightly was the hot and cold water defaults on the appliances, however I believe this is a regional thing. Once I was aware that I need to allow a hot connection to the outlet (rather than warm), the issue was easily resolved and caused no delays.

H2X Review

5 vor 5 Monaten

Kommentare: Very, very useful tool that is likely to make a real impact in the industry. The dev team are extremely helpful, proactive and knowledgeable - able to provide general hydraulic design advice as well as that pertaining to the software itself. Can see this type of software eventually making its way into the Autodesk suite and becoming as ingrained in the industry as CAD or Revit

Vorteile:

The versatility of providing instant calculations using a variety of methods. This allows us to instantly compute different pipe sizing methodologies and showcase the subsequent cost and time savings that can be achieved by using alternative standards. This can streamline workflows in the order of days depending on the size of the project and has the potential to be a big driver in a revolution in material and engergy usage in plumbing installations in Australia

Nachteile:

The markup/drawing UX is still in development, however this is being continually improved. Minor discrepancies in usability between H2x and more typical modelling/drawing software (AutoCAD/Revit) can hinder markups of larger projects. Just needs some more in-built toold to really bring upo the fluidity of drawing and modelling

Design confidence and real time design anylising

5 letztes Jahr

Kommentare: H2X has helped us streamline some areas of our workflow by consistently allowing us to size and analyse our designs at markup stage accross a broad range of projects. Currently it is being used in residential and commercial projects.

Vorteile:

Being able to size and anayise pipework sizes and test pressures and pump duties required in real time has been very efficient and has also increased confidence in the design.

Nachteile:

Setting up the drawings and levels is a little tedius at times, and the height and base of risers would be easier to understand if they were in reference to the levels of the project rather than the over all level. for example, base: 2.3m above floor of basement and top: 2.9m above floor of level 6.

Antwort von H2X

letztes Jahr

Hi Blake, Thanks for the review! It's good to see you are experiencing high design efficiencies and have a lot of confidence in the software. I think the option to set the levels of the risers by referencing floor or ceiling numbers is a great idea. I have entered this as a feature request. Please let me know if you think of any others, H2X wouldn't be what it is today without valuable feedback like this.

Kommentare: I personally need to use it more but i think this will be the main hydraulic tool of the industry in the future it is great that i can get a grad/intern to use it and get going relatively quickly, then i can come in and tweak to get the final answers, i don't have to go through the ins and outs of calculations.

Vorteile:

hot keys are good colors are good Ease of calculation type selection

Nachteile:

bugs, we have had issues on a number of times, ie rendering errors. This has impacted on deliverables and meant we had to revert back to the manual process

Ilias Design review of H2X

5 vor 4 Monaten

Kommentare: -Quick turn arounds for design
-Quality assurance as you can quickly calculate pipe sizing using DTS solutions (As 3500) or utilise alternate codes to size where required.
-Ease of use

Vorteile:

H2X was easily integrated into our business to fast-trak engineering processes we do within our field of hydraulics. The system is simple and easy to understand, and provides an array of information. Integration with revit software will also reduce drafting lead times, and a bonus as its sized prior to input.

Nachteile:

A few bugs throughout the year with some downtime, however the customer service team was ready to help out.

Really Impressed

4 vor 4 Monaten

Kommentare: Really impressed with the software. In my opinion, it is not suitable for us to use in every project, but has many benefits for particular projects. I will definitely be using it again in the future and love the concept. Look forward to trying out the new aspects including drainage design.

Vorteile:

Love the fact that the calculations are automatically done just by the user preparing the pipework layout and by inputting the design data. Favourites are things like the HW flow and return loop and pump sizing.

Nachteile:

Have had a few minor glitches in resolving design issues. However, have had calls with H2X personnel and issues have been resolved within 1-2 hours. Support has been excellent.

H2X Plumbing Design Software

5 vor 4 Monaten

Kommentare: I was surprised at the easy with which I was able to start using the software and produce the desired results. It is intuitive and very user friendly.

Vorteile:

It is easy to use right from the start. Only require a few minutes to get to know the basics and it's ready to use.

Nachteile:

There are no specific things I liked least. However, there are a couple of features which could be added. For example, after having computed the network and gone back to Plumbing mode to make changes, it would be great if the piece of pipe selected would display the computed pipe size in the properties window, rather than just saying "Computed" next to the pipe size.
