how to draw the offset of a duct? if my duct goes to one way and then has to offset 90 degree. what is the radius should the round connection be?

 

Did anybody have any example?

no need to reduce your main to branch off with something smaller.

I don't know if this will help, but this is how I draw my HVAC ducts.

This is very common in the HVAC industry. Granted its a custom fitting that usually costs more which can drive up bid price, but for very widely used sizes, this is definitely common.

Are you using MEP or plain AutoCAD?

could be why i havent seen it, we do a lot of schools and they have to take the lowest bid, so we avoid custom things that can be done with standard parts

Not only that, but a 12x10x8 fitting is a standard catalog fitting which doesn't fall under the "custom" fitting part of a duct manufacturer. But a 16x8x6 would be because its FAR less used than the other, so a duct manuf. would have plenty of stock of the typical ones used. :)

Years ago I was a layout man for industrial duct work.

 

I was surprised when we fab'd duct to move cotton around a processing plant.

Cotton would wear out the duct very fast, we reinforced the duct with heavy steel which the cotton would polish the inside of the duct, and soon, blow out the fittings.
