    Default Revit pipe welded tee reducing

    I need to draw welded carbon steel pipe 2 inches and above. I have modified the standard pipe transition to be a little longer to look a little better. I have modified the standard pipe elbow to have a 1.5R radius. But the standard tee is not good because it is x by x by x, and when faced with a smaller side outlet it automatically places a reducer there.

    So I am using the threaded reducing tee. This family seems to work just like I want, and allows the side outlet to be smaller than my straight ends, but has been a pain for me to figure out how it works. When I remove the bulges on the ends that show the raised wrench rib, just when it starts to look better the pipes no longer end at the edges of the fitting, and instead end inside the tee.

    What are you guys doing for welded fittings, and do you have any hints for what I should be looking for inside that threaded tee as I try to make it look like a welded tee?

    Thanks

    I found the pipe spud information here:

    And am using taps now instead of tees.

    But still interested in eventually working out welded reducing tees.

    So I now have made two spuds. I have one that I call Spud 90 only welded, and one that I call Spud 45 only welded. The 90 version is in my pipe type definition and has a smaller distance, and then if I do a Y type connection, I can change to the 45 version that has a longer distance. The only problem is, like my 90 elbow, the diameter of the fitting does not match the diameter of the pipe.

    Tim:

    How extensive and accurate is your welded pipe family? I, too, need to run welded pipe and have been looking for family content for that.
