Back to Back Sockolet errors

Has anyone noticed that if you place back to back sockolets (I've only tested SOL's) on a pipe, that the isometric is incorrrect?  The SOL's connect to each other rather than connecting to the pipe.  If you move one of the SOL's 0.001" away from the other, the iso works correctly.

I'm having a hard time picturing this. Is this a pipe that has two SOL placed on it at the same point, but pointing in opposite directions?

 

We had a problem like this once, but I thought we'd fixed it. Is this still a problem?

Correct.

 

In my case, in a couple locations, I have a 3" pipe with back to back (180 degrees from each other) 1" SOL's (and piping).  One iso will have the 3" pipe, with no mention of the SOL's, the other iso will show the SOL's with no mention of hte 3" pipe.

Hmm. This works for me in 2015 even with the SOL at exactly the same spot.

Are you working with out of the box (OOTB) components and a default project setup? Or is any of this customized? If you haven’t yet, you may want to try this with OOTB parts and a default project to see if you get different results.
