    Double line piping display issues

    Does anyone else get it when they are showing double-line piping where the pipe fitting (elbow) line work doesn't show one one side? I tried deleting and remaking the elbow. This worked for the elbow to the right of the circled one, but the circled one just toggles between which line decides not to show?

    Are there any fixes?

    Edit: Could it be a line type issue? I tried turning it (the system type graphics) to a solid line type and remaking the elbow, but it doesn't seem to be making a difference.

    I've seen that as well from time to time, it's just a graphical glitch. I've gotten it to go away by redrawing the elbow, but you have to move it around to "fool" revit into treating it as a new object.

      I have encountered this at times and I wonder if it is also related to the central axis rotation issue on pipes that affects the ability to snap to the pipe edge...

        I've never had a problem with rotated pipes, so I can't speak to that.

        I got it to work, but only after I threatened to replace the elbow with a different family [emoji14]. I guess I finally jiggled the pipes around enough...

          The company I worked at back in 2012/13, we really dug into this issue and one guy seemed to find a consistent fix - he found this happening on fittings that were slightly off alignment with the view (say, 89.997° or 90.038° or something). Sometimes when pipes are very slightly off axis or something cocks to one side where it's not exactly perpendicular to the View, or the fitting kind of rotates by a fraction of a degree, it would produce these "graphic glitches". I have found all these years later this to still be the consistent cause and fix - sometimes meaning you have to re-run your pipe holding Shift so it routes orthogonal.

          So you may have fixed it by deleting the fitting and maybe using a Trim Corner to reconnect and Revit will "get it right this time". I see it often enough in my daily work.

            That is most definitely my problem then. For this project I have my mechanical room rotated at 50°(55°?) to the rest of the building. Then I have a rotated scope box to control the extents of the view and make everything nice and orthogonal. And the room is halfway between the main floor and the next level.

            It's made for a little bit of fun.
