Diffusers, ductwork, and mechanical equipment can all be assigned an elevation. The 2D and 3D blocks for the device will be inserted at the specified elevation.
For ceiling diffusers, the elevation is relative to the bottom of the diffuser.
For sidewall diffusers, the relative point for the elevation is based upon the duct to which it is connected.
For ductwork, the elevation is based upon the Vertical Alignment field.
For mechanical equipment, the elevation is based upon the Elevation Location field.
If the elevation is not set, a default value of 10 will be used. This will not create any errors, but some features will not be useful if you do not provide elevations. The 3D model will not be correct.
The elevation is relative to the current floor or alignment point area. If the device is inserted inside of a room, the elevation is based upon the elevation of the floor the room occupies. If the device is not inside of a room, the elevation is based upon the elevation of the alignment point area. In both cases, the elevation entered is added to the other elevation to give the true elevation of the device. Do not enter the elevation relative to ground or sea level.
Elevations are specified as feet-inches. For example, an elevation of 5 feet 6 inches should be entered as "5-6". A single number without a dash is interpreted as an elevation in feet.
