Learn about using 3D sketching and auto routing to create flexible tubing.
- [Instructor] You'll be familiar with the basics…of making tube from how we created pipe,…but there are a few key differences…to take into consideration.…We will start by manually creating a tube route…by adding the starting and ending points…to fittings that I've already put into this block.…We're going to work on connecting this top fitting…to this bottom fitting.…So let's zoom in on this point up here,…the connection point for this top fitting.…Then I'll right-click on that and go down to Start Route,…again, just like we did with piping.…Now you'll see over here that the Route Properties…has popped up, but this time,…there's a few different options to pick from.…
So if you scroll down, you'll notice that…it automatically puts tube here instead of pipe,…because the software knows that you're…performing a tube route into a tube fitting…that it has pre-programmed into the design library pieces.…Now, you can come down to the base configuration…and select what outer diameter and…what wall thickness you'd like on your tube.…
