    Default Pipe Accessory Family Inserts at Strange Angle

    I recently created a new Pipe Accessory family. I've done this many times before with no problems. But, this time when I insert the family into my model it always want to break into the piping at a strange angle instead of vertical. The family is defined as "always vertical" and was built in a vertical orientation. Any ideas on why this is happening? Sample screen shot is below. What I want is shown on the right, but what I'm always getting is shown on the left. I can rotate it to the correct angle, but this shouldn't be necessary.

    Check the primary pipe connector for rotation in the family.

    Yes, that was it. I never thought of that, but because of the hex shape it must have placed the pipe connector at a strange angle. Thanks.

    The hex shape has that problem. but you could create a small round shape and add the connector at that round shape will solve this problem
