    Smart conduit and cable tray hanger

    Hello,
    I am trying to build a conduit/cable tray hanger that 1.The rod can attach to the floor above & 2.Is able to attach to the bottom of conduit/cable tray.
    Is this possible? I have been doing some research and can't seem to find anything.
    Thank you

    There are some smart hanger families built in Revit as part of the Fabrication Parts feature, that attach to the nearest structural member above, and adjust correctly to the element that they support. But those smart features work like that only for pipes and ducts. Not for electrical elements. I studied this a couple of years ago, and I made a video about it. I just tested this today, and it looks that nothing has changed in 2020.

    Optionally, there are add-ons that specialize on hangers.

    Thank you for the reply. I was able to find and manipulate a dynamo script another user created for pipe. It automatically places hangers on the conduits you select. Then cuts the rods to the floor above, spans the width of the conduit rack, and places them to the bottom elevation of the rack.
