Extreme element ratio
When you have for example two connecting tees with almost 2x L-RUN or 2x L-BRN distance between the polygon points there will be for example be few mm available as pipe element length. When you have extensions in the system an error E200/5 or E200/13 will occur.
The element ratio is less then 0.01 giving a hard error in PLE. Is it possible to don't give a hard error at a element size is a few mm but a warning.

Error in element ratio in POLYDIF table:
   

Error solved with a little higher delta:
   

I have attached the project files in 'Project files.zip'.

RE: Extreme element ratio
Sorry, at this point it is not possible to simply ignore such an extreme element ratio. The calculation routines can't handle this.

Is ident D20S2 strictly necessary? At exactly that point? Can't the automatically generated ident "Tee4e" be used? If required (for clarity), you can also define an "additional ident" D20S2 in table ADIDENT instead of the original ident D20S2 in POLYDIF, which can be placed at the position of ident "Tee4e".
