Choose Fittings Used In Pressure Drop Calculations

Add the ability to choose the specific fitting type used when calculating pressure drop in duct systems. Currently, the fitting type is fixed.

        This would be great. Also, the pressure report erroneously indicates some round fitting names for rectangular duct and vice versa.

        It may get tedious if you have to select the fitting from a long list for every fitting on the drawing. The ASHRAE duct database covers over 200 fittings. I like the duct fitting commands the way they are currently, with about 17 commands +/-. It would be nice if you could assign a default database value to each of the 17 commands through the DM HVAC options. Also would be nice if you do an override database value for a specific fitting if need be.
