I am trying to model a hot aisle containment in my datacenter but I can't get it correct. I have modified the size of the containment to align it to the racks. I have also tried to ad blockers in the small gaps where the legs are in the hyperpod that is used in the DC. When I hoover over the rack I receive the warning that there are gaps in the containment system. The major issue is that I do not know where the gaps are and the second issue is that it is very difficult to change the size of the blockers and whatever I try I can't get rid of the faults in this containment. I have two containments, the first one finally worked (with rather large gaps) but the second one I can not get right (with blockers and smaller gaps). Any advice on how to get it right?

Gaps between the equipment not expected to be visibly large (not larger than few cm) otherwise it may break the calculations. You might want to use the "Zoom in" feature to zoom in and study/remove the gaps between the equipment by simply moving the equipment closer to each other. If possible, as additional work around, remove blocks and move racks/equipment closer. It might also be the case that the contaminant system is not perpetually covering its items/equipment.

Thanks for the advices. Unfortunatelly I am not able to solve the issue. I see no visible difference between the containment that works and the containment that does not work. There is no indication where the issue lies. I am having difficulties adjusting size and placements of blockers, I often cant place a blocker despite there being enough spacing between two racks. Placing the racks next to each other does not solve the issue and does not represent reality since the pod-construction in reallity blocks a certain space that I would like to represent properly with a blocker if needed for the containment to work. I am also facing difficulties resizing the containment and the row object via the mouse when I try to improve alignment.
