Skill Level Intermediate
- [Instructor] New in 2018, we can now use what's called multi-point routing. It's as if we're drawing the ducts an actual revet. Wait, we are aren't we? So let's do it. I'd also like to optimize the lengths as well. Under projects, let's go to our mechanical template. Let's go to systems, we'll go to fabrication settings for the configurations I'll grab imperial content V3.05.
And I'll grab my HVAC stuff, click add, let's click OK. For my service I'll grab supply air. Now under fabrication notice that we have multi-point routing. So go ahead and click that. And we're off. Now we can draw it like we normally would. And even if you offset it, it'll put the part in somehow it knows.
So if we just draw quite a few pieces, if we offset it five feet, it'll even model in our rise. I'm going to go to a 3D view. What I'd like to do is optimize these lengths, 'cause again, if we select one of these, we're going to get a warning, and it's just too long. So I'm going to hover over one of my pieces of duct, hit tab, select 'em, and I'm going to optimize 'em.
There we go. It was a short video, but you can draw this stuff like you normally would. You don't have to stick it in piece by piece.
Q: Why can't I earn a Certificate of Completion for this course?
