3-Way Diffusers

How do I so a 3-way and 2-Way Diffusers in plan view. Normally I would hatch the 1 or 2 sides of the diffuser that is not being used, But I can't hatch MV Parts.
The only option I can think of without creating a new MVpart is to draw a pline ofer the MVpart then hatch the object. Any other options?

Hi Toma -

 

You will need to hatch the view block used in the
plan view.  An example of what you want to do is contained in the 18 x 18
Square Louver Face Ceiling Diffuser.  It uses hatched blocks in for the
schematic blocks. 

 

Come to think of it, the ABS 3 IsoSchematic display
config (which was the only display configuration that used the symbol view) may
have been removed from ABS 2004 templates for some reason.  It enabled you
to see everything in one line with the MvParts as symbols - essentially a
to-scale isometric.  You can recreate it easily enough by changing the
Display Set "ABS Floor Plan 1 Line" setting for MvParts from "2 Line" to
"Schematic", then view everything in the Display configuration ABS Floor
1-Line.

 

I hope this helps!

You could also use flow arrows, with a custom block so that you could show
the same part as either a 2 way or 3 way flow. To do this right click the
part and go to MvPartProperties -> Flow tab.
