Is there any way to place pipes on specific piping systems (ex. domestic cold water, domestic hot water, sanitary, etc.)? And if there is can you also specify line type and color?

Thanks in advance!

This is driving me crazy too...!

I want to create a storm water system, firstly one does not exist in the system types...?

So I figure I will install  a chiller in the basement & connect it into my storm water using the hydronics system. Then use the filters to switch on / off between my sanitary pipework & storm water pipework.

The troube is even though when I TAB it shows all my pipework connected & the system hooks into the chiller, when I check the properties of some of the pipes they STILL show as part of the Sanitary system & act as such when filtering.

WHEN are Autodesk going to fix this MAJOR issue / flaw with the software.

I am having the same problem with this.  Since piping systems all fall under the category of "piping" in the Visibility/Graphic (VG) overrides; all the piping elements have to belong to a system before the filters will correctly work.  The only way I have found to do it is to connect any part of the piping system to a fixture or piece of equipment.  This will change the system assignment for all the piping connected to it.  I hope there is a better way out there to do it, becuase I can see this being alot of trouble for renovation projects.

Hello, the system a Revit MEP pipe belongs to is assigned automatically by the objects it connects to.  For example, a toilet has a doemestic cold water connection and a sanitary connection.  You can independently control the display of pipes belonging to the same system by creating different Pipe Types and then using the Pipe Types to create new Visibility/Graphics Override filters.  Then, select and assign the appropriate pipe type to pipes.  For example, I can have a continuous line appearance for a sanitary pipe coming directly out of a toilet, but create and assign a Vent Pipe, pipe type to the appropriate vertical pipes that belong to the sanitary system.  Check out my blog for details.  I just wrote and posted the first part of a two-part tutorial on this process there this weekend.  There is a link in the signature below.

Jill,

Thank you much.  That was great information and is a nice way to differentiate piping systems.
