‘Split Elements’ splits selected MEP elements by inserting fittings by predefined spacing rules.
Part Type of the fittings must be set to Union. ‘Split Elements’ works on Ducts, Pipes, Cable Trays and Conduits.
After selecting the MEP elements in a project and clicking ‘Split Elements’, the ‘Split Elements’ window appears.
Here you can select a ‘Split Configuration’ to be executed. Configurations can be filtered by groups. The image on the right is a preview of the fitting specified in the selected configuration.
The ‘Edit’ button opens the ‘Split Configurations’ window where you can make modifications to your element splitting settings. Click here to read more about ‘Split Configurations’.
In the ‘Info’ section, you can see a breakdown of your selection by category. Union fittings can only be inserted for one category of MEP elements at a time. The last line is the overview of elements that the configuration will be applied to.
The ‘Insert Details’ button at the bottom right of the window runs the selected configuration.
