Understand how to start routing and how the route subassembly organizes and stores the components of a route. Enable the Routing add-in. Locate the Piping, Tubing and Electrical menus. Understand a routing subassembly. Identify routing library components. Use the routing library manager to load settings.
Make changes to route geometry using 3D sketches. Edit routes by deleting, trimming, and adding sketch geometry. Delete existing fittings and add replacements fittings. Edit existing routes. Delete existing fittings. Add replacement fittings.
Connect existing components using orthogonal tubes and standard fittings from the library. Use the Auto Route feature to automatically generate routes Add standard fittings to assemblies. Create orthogonal routes between features.
Create flexible tubing routes between existing components in an assembly. Edit tubing routes to accomodate tubing clips and cylindrical envelopes. Use the Repair Route command and the Re-route Spline option to resolve any errors. Create flexible tube routes. Edit routes using tubing clips and envelopes.
Edit a pipe route relative to the pipe\'s geometry (either centerline or external surface). Coverings can also be added to pipes. Create a route relative to an existing surface. Add coverings to pipes. Change where dimensions are assigned relative to the pipe (centerline or external surface).
Automatically create a piping route between connections. You choose from one of many possible routes. You can specify that the route goes around model geometry or through reference geometry. Drag and drop flanges. Create a new piping route. Create route geometry using auto-route. View multiple route solutions. Evaluate route solutions.
