Separating ducts

The “Separate ducts” workflow is used to separate ducts while retaining their attributes. Both the descriptive information about the duct and the subordinate ducts, microducts and cables occupying it are transferred to the new duct sections.

Procedure

Start the workflow in Workflow Explorer > Duct workflows > Separate ducts by double-clicking it, from the context menu or by clicking the mceclip3.png button in the lower right area of the workflow explorer:
