I wish....

That I could create a RACK object and give this rack properties that have all the information about what is on that rack. Size, quantity and order of of conduit, how many levels of conduit are on the rack, separation of conduits. How many tiers of of strut for the rack etc.... and then after all that is configured, be able to BREAK, OFFSET and CONNECT the entire rack with one MEP snap connection and have all the conduits connect properly.

Then have the ability to peel off individual conduits as they need to drop off. Basically treating a conduit rack as a single object.

I am working on a job that has one rack that is 5 levels deep and has about 80 conduits on it. It takes forever to connect each conduit if there is anything other than a straight run.
