Learn about adding valves, crosses, and gaskets to your design.
- [Instructor] Before we move on to looking at the addition…of some custom components to your design, let's take a quick…look at how we can add in some of the other design library…fittings.…I mentioned earlier how you can add in tees by creating…split points to your pipes.…However, there's another way you can do this as well.…In the last video you added a pipe penetration point…into this route here.…However, if you change your mind and decide you want…to add a tee into this spot, that is definitely possible.…So let's take a look at how to do that.…
I'm going to go ahead and open up this route set assembly…and go to Edit Route.…Now I'm going to go into my design library, select the tees…folder and I'm going to pick the straight tee inch selection…I can actually drag that directly onto my penetration…point just like I would a split point and you can see…that the tee automatically aligns itself with the pipes…that you've already created.…So I can go ahead and drop that, select my configuration…as usual and X out.…
