Join Thom Tremblay for an in-depth discussion in this video Changing a run style, part of Autodesk Inventor Routed Systems: Tubing.
- [Instructor] In the next few lessons we'll focus on making changes to existing runs. The first one we'll do is making a change to how our run is developed. Presently both roads inside of this run are formed from bending copper tube into shape. If I navigate my browser down to the route that I'd like to change, what I'd like to do is go to the Manage panel, to the pull down and select the Soldered Copper Tubing with Elbow style.
Immediately after selecting the new style you'll see that my route recalculates to get sharp corners rather than the curved bent corners that were with the original style. When I finish my route it will update to reflect the change to the new style. This change in this case not only includes adding elbows and short segments rather than one continuous curve but it also incorporates a change to the color.
Making a change to your style is typically only done when there's a significant change to the manufacturing process or the purpose of the design. But it's a simple process should the need arise.
