Hi we are using revit mep rel. 2012.
i downloaded the grooved revit fittings from Victaulic site.
added them to family,
can see all except when i try to draw a lenght of pipe and change directions,
revit adds a 45 deg. elbow when i want a 90 deg.
HAS ANYONE HAD THIS PROBLEM?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Could you post one of the uncooperative families files as well as the corresponding catalog .txt file (if there is one)?
A believe this fitting requires a lookup table named, "Victaulic-IPS-Elbow No 10-13.csv". This file should have been downloaded along with the .rfa file.
Yes i found these files, do i have to tell Revit where to look?
if so how?
C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\RME 2012\Libraries\US Imperial\Vic fitings\autodesk-revit-mep\ips\Autodesk-Revit-MEP-
You need to place the csv into the lookup table directory which should be
C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\RME 2012\Lookup Tables\Pipe
They should then work correctly.
Same problem with Vic fittlngs in REVIT 2014, CSV file list 11.25/22.5/45/90 degree enties, but as the fitting comes it will only draw a 45 degree elbow, if I edit the RFA parameters to 90 degree then I can do only 90 degree, etc. It will not select the actual angle of the pipe.
Same fitting file, and the CSV's are in the ...\lookup tables\pipe folder but it still doesn't work
I'm not absolutely certain, but you might have to open the Family and specify the Lookup Table Name. Open the Family file and see if you're presented with any warnings or errors about missing Lookup Tables.
The RFA file does list the CSV's with no errors. I even tried to re-import the CSV's just to make sure it "knew" where they are, but still luck. It changes size / inserts as the correct size so it's seeing the sizing parameters in the CSV file. The problem seems to be in the Angle side of the RFA. Inside the CSV are listings for each size for angles on 11.25/22.5/45/90. It does the same in version 2013, currently I'm using 2014. I'll have to try it in 2012 or below.
Wish REVIT files where standard between versions, it is possible because I have multiple versions of REVIT MEP instaled that it's getting "confused"? (we deal with Architects that use different version of REVIT so we have to be able to work on multiple versions.)
Victaulic hasn't gotten back to me yet with a soultion, they don't have version 2014 (at least thats what the person I talked to noted)
Ahh the live of a Revitor...
