Special Connection Points

(1/2) > >>

Hello I was just wondering if anyone knows where to start for me to create special connection points for my valve that I have created on visio. My shape(value) has 2 positions. It has position A and position B, which as be selected by right clicking on the shape.

What I am trying to do (if it is possible) to switch the position on the shape and make the input to the connection change as well and flow into the direction that the valve directs.

The shape that is attached represents the Blend on the picture. For example if the shape is changed to position A(red) how could I make the purple to flow downwards instead of across.

Sorry for my wording. I think a better question would be..Is it possible for the lines to change directions and the color when the valves change. The picture is attached for better understanding. Is it possible to program this.

Hello Skydiver,
your problem can be solved, but I'm not on a PC with visio right now, so I'll try to give an answer in the next post.
Meanwhile I would be very interested in the rotary valves shown in your diagram. How are they called, where can the purchased and when do you use them. I specially wonder how you manage to design circuits with the more complex ones (4 and more pairs).

Hello Yacine. These rotary valves work in a circuit by controlling how a specific gas flows through them. The more complex ones just have more inputs and outputs.When switching a valve, the connection points in the valve rotate.

Can you point me to a supplier?
