|This task shows you how to orient a hanger before you place it.|
|1.||You can choose to use one of two methods to orient the hanger you intend to place. If you do not use any method then the hanger orientation will be based on the local axis. This means that the downcomers will point in the Z direction of the axis.|
|2.||To orient the hanger using the
offset plane, click the Offset Plane button
and place it, in this
example on a loft. When you place a hanger the downcomers will point
toward the offset plane. The image below shows the downcomers of two
hangers placed on the same loft pointing toward the offset plane.
|3.||You can orient the hangers using
the compass. Place the compass on the loft - the downcomers will align
with the Z axis of the compass when you place them.
|If both offset plane and compass are placed on a loft then the offset plane will have precedence - the hanger will point toward the plane.|
