    thanks to those who have help on this issue. I have been busy at work and have had some time to try things and have been slowly converting families

    I've done the same thing for our "pressure pipe", i.e. domestic water, hydronic, etc. For our DWV piping, I made elbows that insert a 45░ chamfer when the bend angle is close to 90░. Our Tee families will also show a dot at the intersection for pressure pipe, or for the chamfer for the DWV fittings. All of this took a LOT of time to get working correctly. Of all the kinds of Revit families, pipe fittings are the ones I hate working with the most!

    At first we simply believed that Revit's single-line piping capability was "broken" and didn't use it all, which of course made our 1/8th scale drawings look like crap. It wasn't until I started digging into how the lines in elbow families worked that I was able to get it looking like something approximating our CAD content.

    Sorry to dig this older thread up but I haven't been successful in creating the mitered symbol. I've got a feeling I'm missing something quite basic.

    Would you mind sharing an elbow with me, TZ?

    Thank you. I'll have a look when crunch time for this project is over.
