"split with gap" for pipes and ducts

"split with gap" for pipes and ducts

In Revit, the split command cuts a pipe or duct in two, leaving a fitting between each piece.
If you need to really separate the two endings, you need to break twice and delete what remains between.
There is a button "split with gap", but this button does nothing on pipes or ducts.
See video for example:

In AutoCAD MEP, splitting a pipe or duct leaves a real gap between each ending which size we can choose.
See example:

AutoCAD MEP does it clearly more fluently. Could it be possible that Revit does it as good?


This is essential for anyone doing ducting or piping runs in Revit... I've always been confused as to why "split with gap" is only designed for walls. It already has a "Joint Gap" parameter that can be preset for ducts and pipes.


Modifying 100's of pipes/dcuts for soffit steps would be a LOT less tedious with this feature :).
