    Default MEP - Pipe Routing Preferences

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    I have been drawing storm pipe no problem all day then all of the sudden my AutoCAD MEP 2015 decided that it does not know what piping preferences to use so it brings up a window, "Choose a Part" with the description, "The part specified in the routing preference cannot be used in the layout due to size or angle limitations. Please select a different part to substitute in the layout and click OK."

    I did try changing the profiles and I attempted to use MEP 2014 also... no luck either way.

    I do not understand why this would come up because it was fine all day and just started... Please help!!!!

    Nick, did you ever find a solution for this issue? We are running into it with AutoCAD MEP 2015 all of the sudden and it appears random.

    mmates: I wouldn't expect an answer from Nick if I were you. As you can tell by the post count below his name this was the one and only time he visited CADTutor.
