Solves MEP elements clashes
About files with the extension .mpifThe file with the .mpif extension is a special installation file of the ModPlus (ModPlus Install File).
These files allow you to install and update all ModPlus components using the auto-update module in case you do not have access to the internet or modplus.org

DESCRIPTIONPlugin allows you to create a bypass of MEP elements without constantly selecting them from the plugin window: for this, you first need to select the intersected elements (i.e. those elements that need to be bypassed), and then just select the necessary elements in the model. In this case, the plugin will automatically add items to the list of processed
The main window of the plugin opens on top of all windows and does not block Revit, which allows you to create MEP bypasses without restarting the plugin.
Before creating bypass, you need to set the following pre-settings:
Offset, mm - sets the offset of the element when creating a bypass relative to its current position.
Angle, ° - sets the angle along which the connections to the displaced part will be built.
Categories - a list of categories of system elements available for processing by the plugin.
- opens the window for selecting categories:
Categories that are not checked in this list will not be selected and processed by the plugin.
Bending directions - specify the direction of the displacement when constructing a bypass in the case of vertical and horizontal intersection.
To bend, you must first select intersecting elements. That is, the elements that need to be circumvented. To select intersected elements, click the Intersected elements button. If, when a button was pressed in the model, elements acceptable for processing were selected, then they are immediately added to the collection of intersected elements. The button also writes the count of intersected elements in the collection. Each time you select intersected items, the collection is not cleared.
- Clear the collection of intersecting elements.
Next, select the elements in the model for which you want to create a bend. If the selected element is valid for processing and the collection of intersected elements is not empty, the Bend button becomes available, which also displays the number of selected elements.
If several intersected elements are selected and one element intersecting them all, the bend will be built immediately through all intersected elements.
If an error occurred during construction of the bend (most often associated with setting incorrect offset and angle values), a window with options for further work will be displayed:
