SOLIDWORKS Ducting Best Practices [VIDEO]

SOLIDWORKS Ducting

SOLIDWORKS Routing provides a user with a very quick method of designing new or existing routes. However, when a user is trying to route HVAC ducting, it often results in errors and incomplete routes due to how SOLIDWORKS lays the duct in the interface. But…
