    Not one to give up that easily, I opened help and did a search pn primary connectors and discovered the reassign connector toggle on the ribbon (did I mention I am using MEP 2010?). That did it!
    Thanks a bunch
    Ray, I've been working on this same tutorial and hopefully with this thread I'll be able to see the light. The next tutorial in that same book has me pulling hair out as well when it comes to that diagonal dimension and assigning LenA1 to it. It just won't take that label..

    Could you possibly summarize the areas of the generic 150 psi slip on flange where your troubles were? I think I'm having the exact same problems.
    Give a man AutoCad, and he'll draw you a floor plan.
    Give a man Revit and he'll build you a house.
    Give Cadmama a couple of drinks and she'll have everyone singing Rockytop!

    Sorry, that was a while ago and the memory fades - I baled on that book and purchased a real book from Advanced Solutions. I did come across an interesting post recently on how revit handles the order of things like reference planes which affects how geometry creates itself directionally.
    Go to http://therevitkid.blogspot.com and have a poke around.
    Also try Revit3D.com
    Both sites have a wealth of information.

    I didn't have any books or anything to start.. .but with all the on line help and tutorials it has given me a lot of guidance - - I have a growing library that I started last quarter of 2009 - I have examples at www.revitmepstore.com , I have included items such parametric basket, tray, valves, fittings etc etc.... got a little bit more to add on.

    Hope you have a look

    That's all well and good Daniel but, I'm not looking to buy parts, I need to be able to create my own parts and from the tutorials I've already tried, there are errors that won't allow the completion of the parts.

    The purpose of this thread was to learn more about the Autodesk tutorials from some of our members that have gone through them.

    I come from the old school of Autocad where, if someone needed a block or drawing, we shared it with them.. We also shared tutorials we found to help explain how things are done.

    With the Revit world, for some reason that has all changed. People want to be paid for everything they create. I'm thankful there are still sites like RevitCity that offer content free to members and as I find more of those sites, I'll add them to my list of favorites.

    I doubt I'll ever add a site that charges for content but, I wish you the best in your endeavors.

    I have been using AutoCAD since about version 10 and every version since including ABS, ADT, MEP, Architecturual, Cadduct, .... is that old skool enough?. ( actually I was drawing board for a while) . - my point was the help I got on forums guided me through...

    Keep in mind how long have you spent trying to do that simple flange tutorial?? To create 1 parametric intelligent revit family could take 5 -6 hours, a catalouge of fittings could take 2-3+ days, a lot of work to give away for free

    I hope you all the best, and just keep at it I am sure you will finally solve where you are going wrong.

    Just another bit of advice - as rule of forums, is not good to post a thread on top of someone elses, as only the people origonaly involved will see it.

    That's not true. A new post is a new post, even if it is in an old thread. However, resurrecting an old thread with a new post is generally not a good idea, since the original folks might not even remember the context. In most cases it is better to post a new thread and, if need be, link to an old thread for reference.
