I have developed a problem in Routing / Piping that has to do with weld neck flanges, only: any size and/or weight class selected assigns a 4” Sch 40 pipe stub to go with it.I have looked at the Design Table and it indicates, for example, that a 3” 150# WN flange should have a 3” pipe stub, etc. But dropping the 3” WN flange on the drawing produces a 3” flange with a 4” pipe stub.

We just switched to Solidworks 2018 and I noticed that the Pipe Routing module doesn't have the "Start at Point" option that the Tubing does. It wasn't always this way. The Piping module in 2016 had it.

I've recently run into the same problem a number of other user have. When using the pipe routing add in you try to drag in a component like a flange from the design library and the dreaded "Drag and Drop has Failed" dialog box pops up. I understand WHY this is happening. The assembly I'm working on was once on another user's laptop and he did a pack and go to get it all on the network.

Another routing mystery... This is not a routing question per se, but... kinda... well, let's get to the point:

I am stuck on the routing geometry trying to add the bend radius and bend angle. When I click add, it doesn't prompt me to do anything, I honestly have no clue what it wants me to do and cannot find a you tube video on adding elbows. I am sure that it i simple, but I am stuck

For some reason, when I go to Edit Route, Edit wires is no longer available, completely grayed out. I suspect the Routing Library template and routing info may be the culprit. Any help would be much appreciated

When we use connectors that are a housing with their terminals sold separately, we need to track those two items separately in inventory. Other than manually entering additional lines in my BOM list in the drawing, I can't figure out a good way to include my contacts as separate line items. Does anyone else have a good system for including the contacts for each connector in their BOM?

Renaming Routing Files I need to change the names of some of my electrical routing files using SWx Explorer. Will my routing and wire data still exist?

I have been doing a lot of work with Solidworks Pipe Routing as of late, and I have noticed a persistent issue that is extremely frustrating. I recently created a custom pipe routing library, which after weeks of adjustments finally worked. I have a custom PVC pipe and custom Elbow that inserts automatically as I draw a 3D sketch. The route works perfectly when drawing the sketch along any of the axes (XYZ), however once I try to get creative with my routes and draw lines off axis, the elbows no

Is there still not a library to download from sworks for standard ball valves? Ive worked with routing now and then creating simple spools. Mostly lwn flanges welded to pipe and also weld the components together where piping is not req'd(weld tees to elbows, reducers, flanges).

Simple routing question So, the routes I have done in the past with ball valves (or any valves), I have drawn the route, then inserted the ball valve in as a part. This makes it difficult to make changes because I aligned the valve using mates.

I am trying to set up a pipe routing template and I was wondering if this is possible: In order to get an estimated cost on a pipe route, can I assign my pipe a cost that would be calculated based on the length of the pipe, so that the bill of materials would show a fairly accurate estimation?

I am new to routing. I have been building piping assemblies using pipe configurations up until now. I currently have a library of fittings that I use. How do I upload or transfer my files into the routing library?

does anyone know why textures (such as brushed metal) aren't transferred over bends? Just the first straight pipe inherits texture. Another thing is why isn't it possible to make features on tubes such as some spiral or revolve cut, that would make a tube look more realistic.

New to routing here. I have done a pack and go on an existing assembly and now need to make changes on each spool. Some spools open with no issues and others open like the one below:
