Can anyone tell me when applying slip on flanges, where to make the connection to the pipe? It's my understanding that slip ons slip over the end of the pipe. However there is no connection point inside the flange. Only the face and the end. Wouldn't this throw off dimensions?
The slip on flange ships with a male connector for connector 2. This means that its CEL value is set to 0. Whether this was by design or an accident i cannot say. You can change it by modifying the part in Content Builder and changing the CEL value for connector 2. Word of warning though, the cut length of pipe that is connected to a slip on flange will be incorrect. It will add 2x's the CEL value instead of the standard 1x. This of course begs the question that is this a bug that Autodesk is aware of and if so is this why the CEL value is set to zero especially when the entire MEP community should know that a slip on flange slips over the pipe? Food for thought.
