Learn about inserting clips into your design to route flexible tubing through your assembly.
- [Instructor] Clips are very important in tubing…and allow us to give more guidance…to our flexible tube route in real life…and in SolidWorks.…We will take a look at how they can be used in SolidWorks…using one of our design library clips.…Let's start by going up and locating that…under routing, and then just click the tubing top folder,…instead of going into one of the smaller ones,…and you'll see here, there is a tubing clip.…So now, let's go in and work on…guiding this new tube route…that we've created and now edited,…and I'm going to right click on it,…edit route.…
Now I'm going to go in and actually add a tubing clip…into this route.…So I'm just dragging it over…and you'll see it kind of snaps to the edge of this wall.…Let's go ahead and add it in right here,…so that we can try to bring our tube route…out a little bit further…and make sure it doesn't interfere with that fitting.…So now that we've drag and dropped it,…it is making a coincident mate,…and I'm okay with that…'cause it's coincident to the wall,…
