Learn about options to choose from when starting a route.
- [Instructor] Now that we have the basic tools…under our belt, it's time to start creating some routes.…We'll start by manually creating some pipe,…and then we will explore some shortcuts that SolidWorks has…that can make it a bit easier.…Our first step for creating a route…is going to be placing a flange…on both the start and ending points for our route.…I've already placed a flange on this end of the tank,…so we're going to go ahead and place a flange…on the end of this tank as well.…We're going to pull the flange out of our design library,…which you can access the same way we have in past videos…by going into the Flanges folder,…and then clicking on the one that we would like…and dragging and dropping it onto the end of our tank.…
Now, we can select whatever configuration we would like,…but we're going to go ahead and stick with the standard…that it inputted here.…Now since we don't need any more flanges to be added on,…we can go ahead and click this X mark up here…and stick with our two that we have now.…
