Learn about using auto-routing in SOLIDWORKS for easy automatic calculations of your pipe path.
- [Instructor] It's time to explore…the SOLIDWORKS Auto-Routing function.…This is a fantastic tool for minimizing your work times…and creating quick, simple routes…using options that you've input.…SOLIDWORKS Auto-Routing auto-calculates what it predicts…will be the best routing options…between two points that you select.…To start out let's go ahead and put flanges on the points…that we would like to AutoRoute between.…This time we're going to connect…these two points on these tanks.…So I've turned on the option that auto-starts my route…when I drag a flange on.…So I'm going to come up to my Design Library flange…and drag it right onto my tank.…
I'm going to hit OK for the configuration…and my Route Properties has already come up.…Again, I'm going to leave everything as it is,…because that's definitely good for what we're working with.…And we have a stub length that's been created.…Now let's go ahead and drag our other flange…onto the other tank, click and drop,…and again, going to stay with the same configuration.…
