    Pipe size connectors!!

    This is my first post here.

    I am making my own version of an excisting family. When i load the family's in a project i can change the connector size of the excisting family. In my family when a click on the connector size i get the value -609.6mm. Does anybody can help?

    With kind regards,

    Joost

    In the project you attached both the tee fittings are working for me and i can freely change all of the connector sizes. the (-)609.6mm is a default value in Revit that gets assigned to connectors (and other things). If you link the connector to a parameter you should no longer get that value when you load the family into a project.

    Are you trying to change the value of the connector size through the connector itself, or through a parameter that you've assigned to the connector? I never change the value of the connector through the connector itself.
    Do all of your connectors have parameters assigned to them?

    If you do have a parameter assigned to the connector then your ability to change the value of that connector can only happen by editing the parameter values. The connector by itself has no relation to the rest of the objects in your family. This only happens when you assign a parameter to it (The parameters are what defines the relationships between everything in the family)
