Placing Transitional Objects on a Run

This task discusses "transitional" objects placed on a run.
For purposes of discussion, transitional objects are defined by any one of three criteria:  
Objects that transition a change in size (e.g., 2in to 1in reducer)
Objects that transition a change in shape (e.g., round duct to rectangular)
Objects that transition a change in alignment (e.g., twisted section)

Transitional part types are reducers, transitions, and twisting parts. When placed on a run, these transitional objects split the run. In the following scenario we will use the Piping Design application to illustrate this function.


Create a simple run and click the Place Part button . The Place Part dialog box opens.
2. Select the run, then click the Browser button opposite the Function type field. The Class Browser opens.
3. Expand Piping Part Function and select Reducer Function.
4. Under Part Type, select Eccentric Reducer. 
5. In the Part Selection dialog box, select a Part Number that is appropriate for the size of the run. For example, if you created a 2 in. run, select REDECC-WM-BW-2in-1in. 
6. Place the part and notice that now there are two runs of different sizes. In the specifications tree, note that in addition to the Reducer Function and Reducer, there is also a second Run.
