    Duct accessories family do not break into duct right

    Hello, This is quite old family you can find online.
    I changed it to duct accessories from mechanical equipment and want it to work like dampers to break into duct. It doesn't do it properly as per attached jpg. On the left is when I draw duct from coil, on right when I try to break into duct,
    Thanks

    Hello,

    The problem is, family modeled referenced from its' bottom elevation. For example when the duct elevation (which is based on center of duct) is 3000 mm and you put the family into that duct, it tries to put it at 3000 mm but measures it from bottom of heating coil. If you select the coil you will see its elevation is 3000 mm but from bottom. Thats why your ducts are bending.
    What you need to do is unfortunately, remodel the family according to center of it. Then the problem will be resolved.
