Whilst designing a ductwork system it may be necessary to create an offset to avoid ductwork clashes. This video shows one method for achieving this. There are some points to consider which may not be obvious in the video:

1. Whilst in the Draw Duct command you can change the current height to draw the next duct by using the mouse Right Click and selecting Duct Height.
2. You will need to change the Ortho setting to one of the following: OrthoOFF, Ortho45 or Ortho30. This is done from the Defaults menu.


The methods shown in this video are also suitable for use in other Netsys programs.
