View Full Version : Duct connector "orientation"/direction.....
2008-11-20, 09:07 PM
Does anyone know why when I place a supply and return on a plane I am not able to toggle the direction of the arrow. The arrow shows up and I click on it and get no result. Also in regard to placing a connector on a face vs. a plane....I don't seem to have the same control in locating it when its placed (on a face). Does anyone have any feedback to either of these two issues. Thanks. I am double posting this. I have it "piggy backed" on another post in the "Wishlist" section. I put it on there not realizing that it was located there. Thanks again for any help offered.

Connectors placed on a "work plane" define their "arrow" orientation based on the "positive" side of the Reference Plane used. The positive side of a Reference Plane is the left side of the "head", where the name appears (when you assign a name parameter to the ref plane). This is true for Reference Planes we add to a family. The stock reference planes that you find in the template behave the opposite way, go figure...positive is to the right side of the "head".
I suppose the connection arrow is just there to tease you in this instance. When the connector is applied to a "face" the "flip" arrow works. Remember the connection arrow represents the duct/pipe...it should point toward the connecting duct/pipe. Actual Flow direction is defined inside the properties dialog of the connector.
Oh...if the arrow is "wrong"...flip the reference plane, drag the end control grip at one end over the other, don't mirror because Revit will want to delete the connector.
