Learn about adding and rotating elbows and reducers in a route.
- [Instructor] Let's take a look at some of the routes…that we've created.…We can see that the major features…are actually different colors.…You'll see that here the flanges and elbows…are located in yellow.…The pipe lengths are located in this pink fuchsia color.…Down here, since we used a form bend…instead of an elbow…that is also located in that same pink color.…This will help you differentiate…between them, when you're looking at your routes.…Now, I want to start a route, just like last time.…However, let's look at how we can add in elbows…without letting the program automatically…generate it for us.…
Instead, we're going to drag in things like elbows…and reducers from our design library.…So, the first thing were going to do is actually…delete this route…so that we can try to emulate something very similar…in this same spot.…So I'm going to go over to select this…from my drop down here.…Right click on that assembly.…And select Delete.…Now go ahead and confirm delete, and click Yes.…And now you'll see the whole route…
