View Full Version : Plumbing system bug?
2009-02-02, 08:01 PM
I have a problem creating plumbing systems. I have created plumbing fixture families with one hot water, cold water, and sanitary sewer each. I place the fixutures, and each falls into the default hot, clod, and sewer systems.
I can create a sewer system with all my fixtures. When I start to create my cold water system, I get the attached warning. "This is part of another system. It will be removed from that and added to this"
Sure enough, the fixture is removed from the sanitary and aput into the new cold water system.
What is the world is going-on???????????????????????? Please Help!

You aren't creating a cold water system, you are creating another sanitary system (the image you posted indicates that you are in a sanitary system, not a cold water system).
Perhaps the system type is set wrong on one of your connectors?

Thanks, but I took that screen capture, and later wrote the description in the post. The fixtures connectors look OK. I think this happens with our custom families or the stock families. The same thing happens no matter what type of system or what order it's done.
You can put all your fixtures in one system. After you create the second system, Revit has removed all of the fixtures from the previous sytem and placed them in the latter system. You can go round and round like this all day long. This is a major problem for me. Is this a problem with the software or is it operator error? I would love to learn that I ignorantly have some setting wrong.

I contacted Autodesk Support . . . PROBLEM SOLVED!!
Whatever it was, Web Update 3 fixed it. The funny thing was, I thought I had installed this web update a few weeks ago. I got a new computer last week, then I noticed this new, weird problem. Any how, it's fixed now. Thanks Jeremy!
