    Question Optimize duct length

    Hey all,


    I'm trying to set up a high-pressure system for a job. The length needs to be 48" max.


    When I go into Fabrication CADmep 2019 and open "Edit Main Database". I created a new Specification "+6WG" as shown in the photo 1.


    Then I went to Setup service and created Service "6in WG" and chose "+6WG" for service spec. (Photo 2)


    When I draw the duct, the length keeps coming out at 44.377" not the 48" I set it to. What am I missing?

    I'm assuming you had to juggle some connector setup, correct?
    TDC vs. Ductmate sort of thing, plus there's a gasket consideration as well if you're into that...
