We are having an issue with the pipe drop display when using the Piping (3D) program. the display is fine if the piping terminates with just the elbow/fitting or another piece of pipe. See attached jpg. But if another fitting (in this case an elbow) is added to the run below, the dashed lines are displayed solid. If you zoom in it appears that the problem is several hidden lines beening displayed, hence causing the solid appearance.
I remember the ductwork ahving the same problem several versions ago as well.
thanks for any suggestions.
