Yes.  I used the elbow and lookup table from the link which you attached to your previous post.


I just re-downloaded the zip folder I posted, put the look-up table in the correct folder and the .rfa folder in my library. I then opened a new project after closing Revit down, re-added the quarter bend to the routing preferences, and it still shows up the same as before with a "broken leg." What gives!? :smileymad:

Have you tried printing it?  Sometimes stuff shows up strangly on my display, maybe an issue with my video card, but plots properly.

Haha well I'd much prefer having YOUR issue where the fitting shows up properly. Haven't tried printing.

Have you tried contacting Charlotte??  There might be a bug that they can fix but havent been told there is something wrong.

Try any of them and ask if they could forward to the person responsible for creating their Revit content.

This whole thread is a great lesson on why you should be cautious using manufacturer content. :smileywink:

Just sent that Brian an email to see what he has to say. Has anyone else tried downloading the link I posted and seeing if their quarter bends draw like mine?

Well Mike, I was so encouraged that my Charlotte no hub elbows displaying properly that I decided to take another fling at using no hub fittings.  When I first told ypu that the elbow displayed properly for me, it was when I inserted the elbow in my model and drew pipes from both connections.

 

So I configured a no hub pipe type with the no hub fittings in the routing preferences.  Low and behold!  When I constructed a 90 degree bend REVIT inserted a no hub elbow with dicontinuos display of piping at one of the connections, just as you described.

 

So now I am back to modeling with PVC DWV and specifying no hub cast iron.  It is indeed an imperfect world, and REVIT is less perfect than we have reason to expect.

Ahhhhh...fancy that. Revit is certainly behind when it comes to MEP.
