Pipes and pipe fittings are showing up as solid hatch in my mep 2line and without dashes in mep design...I even used an out of the box template and they still seem to be doing it....Anyone know of a fix?

 

I attached some pics and circled problem areas...also in my section view the fittings are showing with a hatch when they are not supposed to....I am still learning to understand the display properties....which I think is the problem....

It would be better if you attached the drawing that contains the pipe.  Did you check your System Overrides?  Does it display differently if you change systems?  Seeing as how half the pipe is correct and the other half isnt then it must be an override of sometype and system seems the best bet.

I looked at the drawing you sent me and the fully hatched pipe is a result of a system override.  If you open up the style manager and go into pipe system definitions and select the system of one of the pipes with the solid fill.  Then in the right hand panel select the display properties tab and you will notice that the systems have alot of system level display overrides active.  If you select the bolded display representation you can see that the lightbulb column for the Hatch row is turned on.  If you turn it off then the solid fill will go away.  Do this for every display representation that shows a solid fill.  You will need to do this for each system that is displaying incorrectly.

 

As far as the mvpart goes you will probably need to modify the particular block that is being displayed for the current display representation.  If you select the mvpart and then right click and select edit mvpart style you will be able to see the block that is used for each display representation.  Just open up that block and edit it for the way you want it to look.

 

Hope this helps you at least a little bit.

Thank you so much!....such an easy fix yet I just couldnt get it....I was looking all over in display properties not the actual system definitions...Makes sense now...So now to change the template so this problem stops.
