I need to edit a duct family.
Revit currently does not automatically instal hangers or duct breaks to a running duct length.
i want to edit the duct family to add these two items since that is how they will actually be installed.
It's not possible to edit a system family to do things like this.
To achieve these sort of tasks you either have to do it manually or by some form of plug-in which access the API functionality.
Check the web for a hanger tool as someone has probably made one that allows ducts to be supported at specific lengths
How do you add Joint in duct work that represents the joint between each duck length?
In Auto cad this is fairly easy, you can specify how long each peice of duct is with duct length and it will break it to how ever long you want your individual piece of duct to be.
please let me Know.
Having MEP in Revit opened a huge can of worms for autodesk. They have a lot of work to do to be able to include EVERY object that is included in a building and for EVERY party to be able to utilize Revit in thier own way. Like I said, We spec the hangers and unions, but don't show them on drawings. It would equal more work and cluttered drawings for us consultants. This would be good for shop drawings, they could take our model and use that add-on to get the segments and schedule them.
