AutoCAD Based Piping (Ribbon/Toolbar/Location)

Button: Riser Nipple Setup Error Type: Fatal Error


When trying to insert a riser nipple/vertical pipe, you get a FATAL ERROR:  Unhandled Access Violation. 592A00h or 8B2A00h



Trying to insert a riser nipple while in Model view.


What to look for;  Confirm the pipes are "in line" with each other.  For example, one end-user had a pipe drawn at 90.005 degrees, and its connecting pipe drawn at 89.993 degrees.  Redrawing both pipes  and confirming they were both at 90.000 degress helped.  

• Type S2D to go back to Edit Mode or 2D

• Run the AUDIT command and make sure to tell Acad to fix the errors (Y).

• Run the PURGE command making sure to purge all, then use RBL to rebuild the HydraCAD layers post purge.
