Place Duct Bank

This feature is used to place duct banks along a selected run of conduits.

The Placement Mode panel

  • Entire Path - places spacers along the full length of a connected run.
  • Change of Direction - places spacers along the length of a connected run until a bend is met.
  • Single Spacer - allows placement of a single spacer.
Placement Mode Options
  • Spacing - defines the maximum distance between spacers.
  • From End - defines the distances used to place spacers at the beginning and end of a run.
  • From Union - defines the distance spacers are placed from a coupling/union.
  • Max Vertical Separation - defines the elevation distance used to determine if a conduit(s) are included in the spacer configuration. If the space between conduits exceeds this value, it is considered a separate duct bank, and an additional template is placed.
  • Max Horizontal Separation - defines the planar distance used to determine if a conduit(s) are included in the spacer configuration. If the space between conduits exceeds this value, it is considered a separate duct bank, and an additional template is placed.

The Family panel

  • Family menu - lists all duct bank families loaded in the model.
  • Load Default Family button - used to load a generic eVolve duct bank family from the Family Browser into the model.

The Template Configuration panel

  • Value A - the distance from the side edge of the outermost conduits to the left and right edges of the spacer.
  • Value B - the distance from the top edge of the uppermost conduit to the top edge of the spacer.
  • Value C - the distance from the bottom edge of the lowermost conduit to the bottom edge of the spacer.
  • Height Rounding - Rounds overall height of the spacer.
  • Width Rounding - rounds the overall width of the spacer.
