The duct point is a feature class that is used to visualize the duct fittings—the connections between two ducts. The form opens in Industry Model Explorer > Duct > Duct point. Regardless of the tabs, network tracking can always be carried out.
Users can find the information about the trenches and ducts that are connected by a fitting in the “General” home tab. Boxes 3 and 4 show the trenches with the ducts, microducts and cables assigned to them.
|Name||A name can be assigned for the duct point. Clicking on opens the point form for the duct point in the current record. The button opens the point forms for all filtered duct points.|
|Type||The duct-point type assigned to the duct point is displayed. Clicking on the button opens a selection of the already-defined duct-point types. Double-clicking in the list box opens the detailed form for duct-point types.|
|Incoming||All incoming trenches with the ducts, microducts and cables assigned to them are listed here.|
|Outgoing||All outgoing trenches with the ducts, microducts and cables assigned to them are listed here.|
|Fittings||The fittings with the ducts that they connect are displayed.|
You can add and update the duct tap label as well as draw, delete and update the duct-connection illustration via the “Edit” menu.
Duct tap label
A “duct tap label” can be added to the selected duct point. In this case, the text with a reference line to the duct point displays the ducts connected via fittings in a grouped display.
The content of the text can be controlled via the NET options.
The corresponding layers for the lines and the text must be loaded and stylized in the display model.
The duct tap label can also be set and updated for several duct points. The position of the text is determined automatically and may need to be subsequently adjusted.
The menu entry “Draw connection illustration” initiates the creation of a duct-connection overview in the illustration.

The menu item “Draw connection illustration” creates a duct-connection overview in the illustration. The information from the duct-point form is visualized in the illustration.
The forms for the labels created can be opened via the “Overviews/reports” menu.
