Learn how to use the SOLIDWORKS Premium routing tools for piping and tubing applications.
- [Instructor] The creation and management of pipes and tubes in a CAD program can be difficult without the help of added tools. From the creation of the paths that pipes will follow, to the additions of the fittings in your design, learning routing specific add-ons for your modeling software can help save you time and streamline your design process. Hi, I'm Erin Winick. I am the founder of a 3D modeling and end of manufacturing company, and have a background in mechanical engineering. In this course, I'm going to take you through learning the basics of using the SolidWorks routing add-in to work with pipes and tubes.
I'm going to show you how to create pipes through 3D sketching, as well as how to use autoroute tools to make your modeling process much simpler. We are also going to look at the different fittings SolidWorks routing has built in, and how we can insert them into our routes. In the end, learning the basics of SolidWorks routing will simplify your modeling of pipes and tubes. It will allow you to create piping systems that are both easy to edit and share with other team members. By going through this course, you'll be ready to take advantage of these tools.
Let's get started.
