Guys, this is a very frustrating situation, I can not simply route a straight pipe+45 elbow+straight pipe+another45 elbow+another straight pipe... in a single operation...
Something is wrong with this model, It also fails when I retrieved it to a new new project and tried the same excercise. I have made a lot of tests without success. I don't know if it's a problem related to view configuration or something like that.
Not sure which pipes you are trying to connect, but I'd just try to do it in multiple operations. I find the routing to be unreliable alot of the time.
I use construction lines to put some of my piping together, when automatic routing fails.
Hi John, Thank you for answering...
The problem still exists when I help my self using lines. Did you retrieve the model I attached?
I think the problem is the model. It actually connects when you force it, but it strangely does not allow to route in a normal way. It dodoesn't permit to route a 45 gyrated section it acts as if a tolerance for pipe distance were turned on, but I think is something related with views.
yeah i'm looking at the file, and while I cannot connect the pipes ( I do not have the project files )
eyeballing the drawing, white pipe - 45 ells mid upper NE section?
the two 45's do not looke like they are lined up properly - which would make routing impossible, but a forced connection possible.
All I can suggest is double check to see if the two fitting faces are lined up correctly, if you havn't already that is.
I cannot do anything with the fittings, since I do not have the project.
but the reason why it may not connect, is when I look at the model, the fittings do not look like they are squared to one and another. You may need to rotate the fittings so they line up together flush.
I seem to have failed to explain what I see in your file. Sorry for wasting your time.
