My 45 degree pipe elbows randomly began showing up much smaller than they are and make it appear as if the pipes don't actually connect.  I have attached a picture showing the problem.  The first screen shot is of a fitting that is incorrect.  The next drawing shows how it should look next to one that isn't correct.  Please help, I am issuing a job on Friday and need this fixed ASAP

Strange looking!  Do the pipes and fittings look correct in Fine detail where you see double-line pipes and fittings?  If so, you might do a quick check of your pipe settings to see if adjusting them could offer a fast solution. I would look at the Manage > Project Settings > MEP Settings > Mechanical Settings > Pipe settings and take a look at the Annotation Scale for Single Line Fittings which, by default is turned on, and the Pipe Fitting Annotation Size, which, by default is set to 1/8".  These settings allow you to increase or decrease the size of single-line fittings to a specific size of your choice no matter what the actual physical size of the fittings are.  Also, check the Pipe Connector Tolerance in the same dialog.  That, by default is set to 5%.  Pipe Connector Tolerance: specifies the number of degrees by which pipe connectors may deviate from their specified mating angle.

Thank you for your post.  Yes it appears the same way in any view that I look at it in.  I have checked all of those settings as well and they are correct.  Cannot fix it no matter what I do, I thought someone else just might have run into it.  I am waiting for Autodesk to respond at this point.

Hi,

I know this thread is old but i figured I'd respond because others might be having the same issue. We were having a similar issue, also on an underslab plan, and we found that in your view range you set the "Bottom" to unlimited it resolved this issue. I hope this might help someone.
