You can make pipelines coincidental using Copy and Paste . Consider the dimensioned sketch below:

The procedures below outline the steps to create a second pipeline coincident to the one in the above example.

  1. Click Edit > Select All to select the entire pipeline, and then click Copy on the Edit toolbar.

  2. Click Place > Pipeline to add a new pipeline. By default, the second pipeline is active. Alternatively, right-click the POD in the Pipeline Explorer, and then click Add Pipeline.

  3. Click Paste on the Edit toolbar to place a copy of the original pipeline.

  4. On your keyboard, press the right arrow key twice to rotate the pipeline 180-degrees.

  5. Click once in the Detail window to place the rotated pipeline.

    Click Window > Cascade so that you can view both pipelines simultaneously.

  6. Click Query 3D Coordinate on the Dimension toolbar, and then click the stem of the origin in P-1.

  7. In the Properties window, click Copy Coordinates.

  8. Right-click Sheet_1 in the second pipeline (P-2), and then click Activate Sheet.

  9. Click Query 3D Coordinate , and then select the open end of the 1.5" bore pipe.

  10. Click Paste Coordinates in the Properties window, and then click OK in the Add Origin dialog box.

    The two pipelines are now coincidental.

  11. Click Show to open the 3D View window.

    The display of the pipes resembles the example below:
