When drawing 2D ducting - Mech-Q HVAC Ducting allows you to add BOM balloons to identify the ducting objects corresponding to BOM Schedule Table items.
After you finished a ducting drawing, start the (straight) Duct module, and then select the "BOM" tab. This will start the "Duct BOM Selector and Settings" dialogue. From the "BOM Balloons" list select either
"Balloon unique each item" (a different BOM balloon will be drawn for each object)or"One Balloon per item kind" (a single balloon will be drawn to identify like duct objects)
The "No Balloons" option will disable the BOM balloon generation.When you select the "OK" tab - Mech-Q will form the BOM with BOM balloons according to your choice as above.
BOM Balloons are not generated in the 3D drawing mode.
