    Pipe Insulation

    Hello
    As you can see i'm trying to insulate the piping system and everything is fine, but when i want to insulate the header (collector), the end cap part just doesn't get insulated, anyone has any idea on how to solve this?
    tnx

    hi
    no solution : you have to create a cap family where you add insulation
    (your cap end are really amazing)

    Thank you Phill for your reply ), after searching the net, i found that there are many others out there facing the same problem, and the fact is Revit insulation method can't follow the actual shape of the element, in fact Revit insulation is just like a simple sweep which can adapt just to pipes and nothing else, tnx for your proposition, i will try that.
    and one more thing, if I edit my cap family and add insulation to it, would it be displayed in the insulation schedule too?

    I just created some pipe and applied insulation to it. The cap is insulated and that insulation shows up in a pipe insulation schedule, but it's a standard "flat" pipe cap. I wonder if the dome shape of your pipe cap family is fouling things in some way.
