Insert Duct

To insert a duct onto the current drawing, go to

DM HVAC->Duct Centerlines->Insert Duct

You will be prompted to identify the starting point of the duct to be inserted.

Specify first point:

After specifying the first point, you will be prompted to specify the next point of the duct or to select an option. The prompt that is displayed depends upon whether you are inserted ducts toward diffusers or away from diffusers.

Specify next point or [Away from Diffusers/Vertical]:
Specify next point or [Toward Diffusers/Vertical]:

Specify next point: Specify the location for the next point of the duct.

If the duct is not connected to another conduit, the Duct Information dialog box will appear, described below.

If the duct is connected to another duct, the duct information will be based upon the connected duct.

You will be prompted again to specify the next point, allowing you to continue inserting ducts.

Away from diffusers: Change the current direction of drawing ducts from toward diffusers to away from diffusers. The first point of a duct will be located close to the diffusers and the second point of the duct will be located close to the fan.

Toward diffusers: Change the current direction of drawing ducts from away from diffusers to toward diffusers. The first point of a duct will be located close to the fan and the second point of the duct will be located close to the diffusers.

Vertical: Insert a vertical duct at the location of the first point.

If the duct is not connected to another duct, the Duct Information dialog box will appear, described below.

If the duct is connected to another duct, you will be prompted to enter an elevation for the duct. If you are inserting ducts toward diffusers, you will be prompted for the ending elevation. If you are inserting ducts away from diffusers, you will be prompted for the starting elevation.
