Problem creating a Tee

Problem creating a Tee

Problem creating a Tee

When trying to create this specific tee, the software does not display the pipes properly and there is a gap between the pipes. And only this one has problem, there is no problem in other elements and tees.
I checked the nodes and there seems to be no error. I also closed and re-opened the program but the issue is still remained.
Below is a picture of my problem attached.
I would appreciate if you could help me solve this issue.

Make dx a bit bigger?
Thanks. That didn't work. I'm trying to draw the pipe from the tee, but it starts with a gap from the tee. Changing dx doesn't solve this problem, however, if I decrease the distance, it will start at the same place but draws the line toward the tee (left to right).
I'm not even sure whether it is just a graphical issue or has impact on the calculations as well. Is there any way to check if it affects the results?

Error Check the model, this sounds like a coordinate mismatch error. The problem is visually apparent when attempting to close loops.
