Can you post a screen shot of the dimension to which you are referring?

I suppose that's what I'm saying...I don't get those results.  Can you post a screenshot to show what you are getting? You may also want to double check catalog dimensions for your pipe.

That doesn't look like piping I'm familiar with. The program name at the top says Civil 3d. Are you sure this is a Plant 3d model?

This is the Plant3D forums, different program to the one you are using. You want this forum: http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/AutoCAD-Civil-3D/ct-p/66
