hi all. i'm using revit 2014. i have a problem that i can't find a solution to. my pipe tag it grabing the offset from the wrong place. i have the pipe set to bottom justified, and the pipe tag is set to bottom. however the dimension the tag shows is to the center of the pipe. this can cause major problems for installing. is there a way to get the tag to show the bottom of pipe elevation? or the bottom of the insulation?

A spot elevation defaults to the center but you can move to the bottom or top. 

What tag are you talking about?

Do you mean the bottom indicator in the tag?  That is not the pipe bottom.

What did you use to create your tag?  The default invert tag reads the invert but points to the center of the pipe.  Check out your tag by placing a spot elevation tag in an elevation and see if the two read the same number.

I would be careful using a "Tag" to get the bottom of pipe. The parameter that most people use when they are trying to have a "1-tag-fits-all" to incorporate the size,system, & elevation is the "Invert elevation" for the label within the tag. The issue with this is the invert elevation does not take into consideration pipe thickness. I believe the industry switches the O.D. @ 14" and up. see attachment.
