What's New in AutoCAD MEP 2013: Get Your Ducts in a Row! – Duct System Routing Enhancements

AutoCAD MEP 2013 has some great enhancements to the Duct Routing Preferences which will help you to route and lay out duct systems per design specification. The Duct Routing Preferences may now be linked to Duct System Definitions. When the Duct System is changed on the Properties palette, the routing preference will change accordingly. You can apply the changes to all segments and fittings connected to the object, and it will continue until it comes to an MVPart, reducer, tee, or cross.

These changes to the system are:
  • Linked to Duct System Definitions
  • Changeable on the Properties palettes
  • Can apply changes to all segments and fittings
