Revit 2013 Pipe Breaks Plumbing Fixture

I ran into a new one today where pipe running over a sink in a linked model, broke the sink like it might break another crossing pipe.

For what ever reason, if you check the "Underlay" box in the Revit Links tab of Visibility Graphics, life gets better.

Better, but not perfect. The sink appears correct, but not subdued. I'll take it for now, but I am not happy.

That's a pretty good tip. I was sometimes running into that issue when I worked for a Calgary plumbing company. I'll keep this in mind the next time I run into the issue. Thanks!

These measures can be effective at preventing your pipes from freezing. However, despite these efforts, frozen plumbing features may still develop from time to time. You may notice that water is not available through a faucet as a preliminary sign that a rupture has developed or soon will develop. If you notice this, take the step to blow direct heat at the faucet or pipe. This can thaw out the frozen area and prevent a rupture. You will not know until the area has thawed if any damage has been done. Monitor the area closely, and call a professional plumber for assistance at the first sign of a rupture or break.
