Duct point

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.

Tabs

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.

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.

Note
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.

Connection illustration

The menu entry “Draw connection illustration” initiates the creation of a duct-connection overview in the illustration.
