I have the following problem; I'm able to make a pipe fitting and load it into the project.

Once in the project, I link it to my pipe type (in this case a flange).

Now, when I place the family and click on the connector size to change it, the value is -609.6 mm (-2')

If I enter an other value, it doesn't do a thing.

I can't even change the value in my properties, but when I select the pipe and connected flange and change the size (in the green bar on top), the fitting changes correctly.


Does anyone knows how to fix this?

I'm using Revit 2015 (Autodesk Building Design Suite Ultimate 2015)

I'm pretty new to pipe types but when I had to create new pipes last week, I had to make sure the new pipe type had the full range of pipe diameters that were needed in the Mechanical Settings - Segments & Sizes section.

It looks like you are trying to change the flange size, correct? in this case you need to go into the family file, and change the connector size. This will not change the any other size related to the flange. Like if it is staying at the -2" then this is the only size that family file (.rfa) was intended to be, therefore if you need another size, and want to do it correctly you need to know all the paramters in the family file, and what dimensions they are used for in order for all dimemsions, like the take-out length. However if you are just trying to get size of the connector, then you can select on the "Pipe Connector" reference circle with an arrow in the center of it, and on the properties bar you will see a diameter, or size, parameter you can change. If this greyed out you can go into the properties window of the family, that has the 4 blue boxes that look like a window, and change the diameter there. *IMPORTANT: doing the second way i mentioned all the other dimensions will keep the 2" sizes until yo uchange them, so if you change that 2" flange's connector to a 4" this way, the pipe going to it will stay 4" but the flanges other dimensions will be that of a 2" flange still, until ou add that information to it. Oh, and after the modifications you make load it back into your project to update the family file within your project file.
