Alrighty. So I'm using Revit Architecture 2010 and I'm looking at piping systems in plan. The pipe crossings where one pipe crosses over the other, seem to appear whitout any kind of white buffer or gap in the lower pipe. It's impossible to tell which pipes are higher and which are lower. If I zoom in a ridiculous amount, I can see a tiny white gap created by the higher pipe, but it's far to small to be any help with the drawing is printed.

I've heard this may be a problem relating to looking at things in Coordination view, with it's differences in showing hidden items. But I've tried Mechanical view as well and it still won't work. The strange this is that the pipe connectors are fine, showing a nice gap whenever they connect to a continuous pipe. I think it could also be a lineweight problem, but if I try to modify linework and put it back to it's category setting, I can't even click the piping.

 Any ideas would be more than welcome.

I do not use RAC 2010. We use MEP 2011. When we run into what you are describing, we go to MEP settings> Mechanical Settings and make sure the "Draw MEP Hidden Lines" checkbox is checked. In that same dialog box there are gap adjustments for the size of break for the lower element.  Maybe there is something similar in RAC 2010?
