Learn how to split your created pipe routes into multiple pipe segments.
- [Lecturer] For adding other parts onto a straight pipe…you will need to split the pipe.…Splitting the pipe means you're dividing the pipe…into two discrete pipe segments.…So, we're going to start by working on splitting…this pipe right here.…So, that is in this assembly,…so I'm going to right-click on that and go to Edit Route.…Now, I'm going to right-click on the segment…in this assembly that I'd like to split.…I right-click and get this dropdown…and go ahead and click Split Route,…which has the scissors cutting the pipe right next to it.…
I want to split this right in the center,…so I'm going to click the midpoint and with that it is split.…If you notice that it now gives me the option…to also split at the midpoint of the new segment,…but we only want one right now,…so we're going to leave it right there.…Now, I'm going to come over to the right…in the Design Library and go down to tees.…I'm going to select the straight tee inch…and drag that right onto that split point.…I drop it and I'm offered the configuration menu,…
