    Custom Duct fitting

    I have created a custom duct fitting (with a square outlet and round inlet) However when I connect my extract system to the inlet, all is fine the system name is 'Apartment 01 Extract' but when I draw duct from the square outlet it takes on the system name 'Mechanical exhaust 01'

    I have linked the connectors, but I can;t seem to figure out how to make both the inlet and outet ducts take on the same system name, Have I missed something in my family creation?

    Are both connectors set to "Fitting" as the system classification?

    I don't have an option for that. I have created the fitting as a 'Metric Duct Elbow' and as a 'Metric Generic Model' and I can;t see that option in either

    Select your connectors in the family editor. Set them both to "Fitting."

    Yes - now change the System Classification Setting from "Supply Air" to "Fitting" for both connectors.
