3D LINES TO DUCT
3D Lines to duct reads line and polyline data from imported DWG or DXF files and creates a matching duct network to your specifications in a single click.
3D Lines to Duct reads line and polyline data from the imported DWG or DXF files and creates a matching duct network to your specifications in a single click.
The DWG or DXF files can easily be created from existing point cloud data in Autodesk® AutoCAD® then imported to Autodesk® Revit® for creation of the duct network.
This app is designed to help Surveyors, Engineers, Architects, 3D Revit Modellers, and 3D Laser scanning technicians who need import as-built conditions and subterranean networks from site to office.
It automates the tedious manual input of duct system elements that must match existing data.
It very accurately matches the centerline of the duct to the imported lines, and you are able to choose duct shape, size and system type, and which level to add the ducting to during the processing phase.
Currently, duct joins need to be added manually, but the automation of that process may be added to future releases.
1. Insert Pre-prepared DWG or DXF file via the Revit insert tab.
2. Go to Add-ins tab and click the 3D lines to Duct button.
3. Click on the DWG instance within the Revit document and the app will prompt you to set up your desired output level, duct shape and size and system type.
4. The app will create duct to match the line data exactly and report on number of ducts created.
