Rejoin Broken Duct and Pipe

It happens. You delete a VAV box or valve and you want to rejoin two sections of duct or pipe. It’s just not very intuitive how so you end up stretching or redrawing. There is actually a function for rejoining although I don’t think it is widely used or known.

To rejoin duct/pipe, select your duct or pipe and right click.

Select Duct Length… or Pipe Length… depending on what you are doing. A dialog box opens that allows you to break or merge. Select Merge, then select apply to Duct/Pipe Run for contiguous runs or select Objects for non contiguous runs.

Hit OK and you have a single run.

I hope this helps with a small annoyance that just seems to happen too often.
