Type: Autodesk.Revit.DB Document
The document.
Type: Autodesk.Revit.DB ElementId
The ElementId of the new pipe type.
Type: Autodesk.Revit.DB ElementId
The level ElementId for the new pipe.
Type: Autodesk.Revit.DB Connector
The first connector where the new pipe starts.
Type: Autodesk.Revit.DB Connector
The second point of the new pipe.

Return Value

The pipe.


The new pipe will have the same diameter and system type as the start connector. The creation will also connect the new pipe to two component who owns the specified connectors. If necessary, additional fitting(s) are included to make a valid connection. If the new pipe can not be connected to the next component (e.g., mismatched direction, no valid fitting, and etc), the new pipe will still be created at the specified connector position, and an InvalidOperationException is thrown.


Exception Condition
Autodesk.Revit.Exceptions ArgumentException The pipe type pipeTypeId is not valid pipe type. -or- The level id levelId is not valid. -or- The connector domain is not Domain.Piping. -or- The points of startConnector and endConnector are equal.
Autodesk.Revit.Exceptions ArgumentNullException A non-optional argument was NULL
Autodesk.Revit.Exceptions DisabledDisciplineException None of the following disciplines is enabled: Mechanical Electrical Piping.
Autodesk.Revit.Exceptions InvalidOperationException Thrown when the new pipe fails to connect with the connector.
