In large MEP models, I consistently identify fittings that are not connected and appear to be “floating” within the model. To address this issue, I created a script that can either export these elements or delete them.
The export option’s purpose is to enable the sending of a list containing these elements to someone for review if necessary. However, if we are confident that we do not need these elements, we can choose to delete them.
The script is compatible with Pipes, Ducts, and Cable Tray fittings and works for any fitting type, including elbows, tees, crosses, etc.
Please make sure that before you start using this script you back up the existing project model.
Also, if you want to download this (and all other scripts) with my sample files please visit the Shop page.
The script uses the following Dynamo packages: Data-Shapes MEPover
