Hi, can anyone tell me why the trim tool in MEP changes the angle of one of the pipe segments when trying to trim them? And how to avoid it?

Im not expert in MEP but I tinker. I've tried to re-create your condition but can't. Completing this action for me does not change the angle. Sometimes the "auto-route" function acts funny and if you don't have really good fittings pre-set, it'll kind of do what it wants. Are you able to correct the angle after the connection is made by aligning to reference planes or something else?

Sorry I don't have an answer, I just don't want you to think your being ignored.

Are the center lines of the two pipe sections co-planer ? I can't replicate that either.

 

Any way you can water down and save that basic project and upload it here ?

UFF, what a relief, that's exactly what I was thinking of. Well here is an excerpt of the model in question. Hope you can see it and find out  what is wrong.

two things: Yes, the segments are co-planar and when I align them with an horizontal reference line after trmming, they, in fact, align, but the elbows dont update to 45 degrees.

Thank you very much.

Well, it was impossible for me to upload the file. I couldn't get it smaller than 6 megas, and I left 3 segments only and purged it completely. Dont know what to do. Maybe if I were able to send it to a someone's email. For the sake of the intellectual challenge.
