I am not aware of any kind of tool to convert the SVG diagram that is made by HVAC-Diagram utility into cycle-diagram that presentation and diagramming programs can create. I have added an issue to suggest enhancing that utility sometime in the future to support common formats used for describing directed graphs.

I did just see a tool for generating system layout graphs from IDF files. Now, where did I see that? By the way, if you are using OpenStudio, it should be easy to do this from a .osm file which uses a node/port-list/connector representation for HVAC.

Yes, and I think I saw it in an UnmetHours answer posted by @Jamie Bull. I can't find the post right now though. Ah, Python ...
