I am placing 6" pipe, doesn’t seem to matter what type, and the elbow won’t appear larger than 1". the elbow fitting says it is 6", but only shows and measures as 1". see attached image.....

I currently have this same problem.  Can you walk me through this process of how to fix this?  I can't really draw any of my pipe in until i fix this problem.  Thanks.

Go to C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Revit MEP 2011\Program and open your Revit .INI file (notepad).

 

You will see the code that begins with

LookupTableLocation=

and

ENULookupTables.cab=

make sure that the paths are correct.

Here was the solution to my problem:

I found that in my Revit.ini file the LookUp file location line ended in the word PIPE, I just removed the word PIPE and everything works now.

That line and the ENU file location line do have to match.

 

LookupTableLocation=C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\RME 2011\LookupTables\

 

ENULookupTables.cab=d:\ProgramData\Autodesk\RME 2011\LookupTables\

Well, I did all of these and nothing happened, pipe fittings still not scaling to pipes.Except my ini file doesnt have the line ENULookup...    (but mine is 2012)

. . . and I couldnt add it because of administrator restrictions. could it be that? No further ideas?

p.s. please and thank you all.
