Hi all,

This is my first post here, as well as, my first revit project. Our firm uses autocad for everything. Naturally, they want it to at least resemble autocad. 

I am trying to make the pipe fittings behave as if they are not there. Instead of the fitting showing where the pipes connect, I would like it to appear as continuous lines that meet eachother as in autocad. Example: I need a tee to appear as a line with a perpindicular line meeting without the flanges. I am very weak in terms of creating families. I attached a pdf dipicting how it would appear in autocad and revit. Any suggestions?

Select your fitting and click edit family. From there you can simply delete the linework that you don't want to appear, then load into project.

I wish it were that simple. I can only select the intire fitting for some reason. There are no lines just an object. It is the generic tee fitting if that helps.

I'm assuming you mean once you have clicked edit family, right? In your project browser under views select floor plan and you will see the linework.

That's where I was trying to edit it. I can select a two objects neither of which are lines. When the object is selected I get the option to edit sweep. there is something called witness lines?

Can you upload your fitting family so I can better understand what your problem is?

Hover over the heavy black lines and hit tab until you are able to select it, then delete it.

No problem, good luck with learning to use Revit, you will soon wonder how you ever got along without it.

Hopefully that is sonner than later. We dont leverage the calulations available in MEP. It's tremendous for coordination in terms of spotting conflicts, but not so much for just plain drafting.
