Pipe Connector For Pipe With Slope

I've attached a Revit 2014 file with an elbow and a pipe.  I am trying to get the pipe to connect to the elbow.

 

On the elbow's connectors I have ticked 'Allow Slope Adjustment'.

 

This is a very simple connection so why won't it work?

Are you trying to specify a special slope? You can make a sloped pipe just using the slope function without any further setting in family.

Hi Jade

 

I have no problems putting a slope onto a pipe apart from when it comes to 'connecting' into a fitting.  It's 'connecting' the pipe to the fitting that's proving difficult.

 

I require a vertical pipe to be connected to the top of the elbow.  The almost horizontal pipe requires a 1:100 (or 1:80) slope downwards away from the elbow.
