Add and remove grips on flexible pipe and duct

Recommended Posts

When drawing a flexible duct or pipe, for some reason the ends don't have the typical "plus" sumbol for adding pipe or duct. Any way to have this fixed?

Also, is it possible to somehow add/remove grips such as with a normal spline?

With Flex Duct, there's not an option to "Add Flex Run" like there is with normal duct that I know of. Other than residential or very small/light commercial, running flex duct more than +/- 5 feet is usually not allowed under code (in the USA that is). But, you can drag the grip as long as you need to extend the flex duct.

I might add that it is better to add a couple of grip points between the two connections. This will allow to grip stretch those points also. This comes in handy during coordination when they ask you to route your flex around that pesky fire protection pipe!
