    Linking Hydronic Supply/Return Pipe Connectors

    Hi,

    I'm working on a quite large project. We are gonna use Radiators for heating. We are limited to 6 PEX pipes per apartment. 3 Supply, 3 Return.
    The biggest apartments needs 6 Radiators, which means i need to connect them in a series, like the picture below.
    In reality we'll use a so called Quattro connector.

    I can draw the part in 3D in the Family Creator, but how do i connect the Connectors so Revit knows that they are coming from the same Main Supply/Return?

    So, I want Revit to know that, the Main Supply/return goes two ways. Like a Tee.

    Is this possible?

    Current solution, very time consuming.

    u can try linking the connectors with supply and return i think you need the connectors to be set to correct in and out and not bidirectional. if there set to bidirectional revit probably will not be able to calculate flow
