There are two ways to connect ductwork between floors of a building, depending upon whether the floors are on the same drawing or different drawings.
Floors on the Same Drawing
If your floors are all in the same drawing, draw your vertical duct on each floor and connect them with a duct. Query the connecting duct and set the Graphics to Transparent. That will keep the air flowing between the floors, but not actually draft anything. If you use our pressure drop calculations, set the pressure drop in the section to 0.
Floors on Different Drawings
If your floors are on different drawings, use the Insert Drawing to Drawing Connection command.
Ribbon: DM HVAC->Ducts-> ->Insert Drawing to Drawing Connection
Pulldown Menu: DM HVAC->Duct Centerlines->Insert Drawing to Drawing Connection
It will connect two drawings for you.
For more information, visit the Insert Drawing to Drawing Connection page in the Design Master HVAC user manual.
