Coupling not connected, that is the reason. right click on the main pipe and select connected line number, you will observe coupling without highlighting.

correct. I would also check in your spec that the branch table is populated properly, otherwise any branches won't connect and you will get the drip symbol at each connection.

Hi,

i have the same BIG problem, but it is all connected and there is not drops. 

In effect all the boxes in the branch table with half coupling are red, but I need that it is so!
What 'is the problem then?
Thank you.

Yes, lines have the same line number.

Half coupling will not be accepted in Branch table, the issue is there in the branch table, not in your plant3d.

Hi all,

Divided by tow because the half coupling not placed correctly on the pipe

You can check that by active the drop water on plant 3D

For more clarification refer to Screen shot

In spec editor, the things fall under TEE and Olet only will be connected with pipe. Half coupling is falling under coupling section. If you still would like to use half coupling for branch, create a new component under Olet, name as Half coupling and define the properties after selecting a suitable block. This is a only solution I feel.

The problem is from P3D.there is a problem with half coupling in P3D 2013,like what ahmed said u should use sockolet instead of half coupling and name it as "half coupling",unfortunately u have to add each size (header and riser) to your spec. and I didn't test half coupling in 2014.
