Learn about rope, tape, and other coverings for pipes, and how to add them into your assembly.
- [Instructor] In addition to editing pipe length,…it might be necessary to add additional parts…to the pipes in your route.…One such example is a pipe covering…that can include anything from rope to tape…but could be crucial to the design of your route.…Adding this in SolidWorks can help you take into account…spacing and weight of this covering.…It'll also let you call it out in your drawings.…To start, let's edit one of our routes…to add a covering to it.…We're going to add a covering to this segment of pipe here,…so that is going to be this assembly…all the way down on the bottom.…
I'm going to right-click that, select Edit Route,…and now I'm going to click one of the segments of pipe,…right-click it, and go down to Covering.…Once you click that, over on the left side of your screen…you'll get these new covering options.…We're going to begin by using a covering from the library,…but we'll also look at creating a custom covering.…So using the covering library,…you can choose between tape, rope, or adhesive tape.…
