    Unhappy Rectangular Eccentric duct transitions does any one have any??

    Im at a loss as i cant find an Eccentric duct transition fitting, there is a standard concentric one but no template eccentrice one can anyone point me in the right direction as for finding one. I am searching the web as we speak but having absolutly no luck, and i would think this to be a common fitting type that should have been available out of the box.

    You need to justify the duct work and the transition will show up automatically. To activate the Justify command on the options bar, select the two pieced of different size ductwork and the concentric transition fitting. Take a look at the options bar, you will see a Justify button between Routing Solutions and Activate Dimensions. When you select it you can specify 1 out of the 9 justifications. Let me know if you need further assistance.

    Is there any way to do this in MEP 2009? The justify button seems to have been removed, and the routing solutions only want to angle the ductwork rather than adjust the transition.

    I never use the justification. In the event that I need a Eccentric reducer, I just align the sides, than drag one duct to the other.

    It wasn't removed. Right-click on any toolbar and activate the "Routing Modify" toolbar.

    Thanks. I didn't see those two buttons hanging out at the far end of my screen. It sounded like they were supposed to be on the command bar, not the toolbars.

    Justification often seems to give unexpected results, so I also do the "align and drag"

    Although dragging the two ducts together worked once, I cannot get it to work again. Also, in MEP 2011 the Justify button does not appear

    You can also manually edit the dimensions in the element properties of a standard transition to create the necessary transition. I can never get the justify tool to work correctly so I also use the align and drag method, then manually edit if I still can't get it.
