I have used the "Convert Lines to Raceway" tool to create a cable ladder run as shown In the image below, but I actually want it to run flat against the wall instead. I have tried implementing this using the "Front" view instead of "Plan" but still getting the same results.
Generally, how do you control the "rotation" or "orientation" of your raceway equipment at insertion.
It seems to me that it's locked to the center of the Raceway. Can be a good candidate for an enhancement. You can file a service request, and we will attach an enhancement to that.
Thanks for your suggestion, I have already logged a service request. Meanwhile, assuming I intend to use the "Place Raceway" tool instead as I am running out of time. What settings do I have to use at insertion to place a simple 3m cable ladder to flush parallel against the wall in the image above?
if I can achieve this, I would probably just use the "Join RacewaY" tool complete the rest of the routing.
Please find samples of image below showing trays and ladders place horizontally and vertically against the wall which is what I am looking to achieve at placement. At moment, I have been cheating by using the "rotate" tool to align the cable ladders and fittings parallel against the wall but the snag to this is that "join raceway" tool don't work well as the original placement orientations of the raceway has been altered.
below is my design intent which I have achieved by manually rotating the raceway to align parallel to the wall. However, the "Join raceway" and Break raceway" don't work on them. If I have to make slight changes or amendments then I have to delete and place new raceway. This is not flexible
For placing that vertical oriented raceway, is this (along with the proper justification) what you are looking for?
