Vertical pipes (gravity and pressure) display incorrectly in profile view

Vertical pipes (gravity and pressure) display incorrectly in profile view

The way pipe ends are currently calculated results in odd display issues for vertical pipes in profile view:

  • There are odd angled/chamfered lines near the connection to the structure/fitting
  • The pipe diameters skews more and more the closer the bend angle gets to 90 deg (fully vertical). 

This issue affects pressure networks more often since connections to gravity structures like manholes are almost always vertical. But this issue can affect both pipe and pressure networks.

Thank you for your idea. The development team will review the idea while customers continue to add feedback and vote on it.

Just had to raise a support case on this and got pointed to this post.  We really need things to be drawn correctly
