To connect two duct runs using Move :

  • For inline connections, the two duct run ends must be collinear to each other.

  • For branch connections, the header and branch runs must be orthogonal to each other.

  • There should be sufficient space at the connection to accommodate the connecting part. If the space is not sufficient the software does not make a connection and displays a message suggesting to connect the duct runs manually.

  • The software consumes the first available straight feature of the moved duct run to accommodate the connection thickness, such as a mating part.

  • In a partial move, if the connection results in an overlap the software connects the two ends with a To Do Record while maintaining the connectivity.

  • If there is no space to accommodate the mating part, the software does not connect the two ends and displays a message suggesting that you connect them manually.

Reducer connecting duct runs A and B

Result: The software connects the duct runs A and B using a system-generated transition. Reduction in duct run B length = length of the transition.
