I am trying to simplify the process not add extra steps, rotating the ucs, cycling through the planes and moving the cursor around to the correct custom angle are way too many extra steps, especially when youre coordinating thousands of feet of pipe in a heavily congested hospital ceiling space. I will add our custom angles on the polar trackign menu but this will not work for us on rolled offsets. We will just continue manually inputting the custom angles and hope that Autodesk will bring this feature back on future builds.
Thank you for your time and input,
This is what I do.
I change the constant list in the catalog to include at least 15.0 and 22.5 in the bent section and the elbow part of each type of conduit. You have to regenerate the catalog.
Then when drawing a rolled bend, you have to change the UCS. Usually I will draw a line between the two ends and pick set the UCS to the object. Draw the conduit. Erase the line.
One thing though if the conduit justification is not the same like one is bottom center and the other center, Autocad will not like it. So I draw all my conduit center justified. It is harder to figure out how to align different sizes on the rack, but at least I can join the conduit together with bends and/or elbows.
Hope this helps.
