Square Angled End
« on: Jun 14, 2024, 06:36:24 AM »
We have been using CID#760 for the duct angled end terminal. Having starting in newer version of revit, the behaviour thinks this is now a tap and we cannot connect this to the end of the duct run.
Has anyone else had this issue and found a fix? I cant turn off the connect as tap feature, or do you recommend any other CID that could be used.

Can you draw the piece independently of the run, rotate it so it's the correct orientation and then use align on the connector nodes to position it at the end of the run? A bit long-winded, but if you isolate the parts before you do it, I'm pretty sure you can get it done quick enough.

I tried that, but the piece keeps trying to connect as a tap. I can't force it to connect to the end.
I had to draw it all back to front. A straight will connect to it, but this angled end won't connect to the straight.

Craig, you can force it. See attached.
