Connect Bend Automatically enables you to connect two pipes with a bend element or elbow, presuming that the two pipes meet the following conditions:

  • Both pipes have open ends.

  • Both pipes have the same bore.

  • The pipes are perpendicular to each other, meaning that one pipe, if projected, intersects the other.

  1. Click Select on the Edit toolbar, or click Edit > Select.

  2. In the Detail window, select the two pipes to connect.

    Hold down CTRL while clicking to select multiple drawing items.

  3. Click Connect Bend Automatically on the Dimension toolbar. Alternatively, click Edit > Connect Bend Automatically.

    The software joins the pipes with an elbow component.

  • The software automatically applies the elbow item code from the specification to which the current project is connected,

  • The software extends or shortens the pipes as necessary to accommodate the connection.

  • If the software is unable to compute the dimensions, you must dimension the pipeline manually.
