The pipe connecting the 3D skew is bi-directional, meaning direction is shown in two planes. The two end points, which define the skew length, do not share any common coordinates.

If you are currently in normal routing mode, you must click once in the Detail window to place the end point of the last section of orthogonal pipe before beginning to route the 3D skew.

  1. Click Route 3D Skew on the Place toolbar. Alternatively, click Place > Route 3D Skew.

  2. Click once in the Detail window to place a start point.

  3. Place three more points in the Detail window to place the skew components:

    1. Click some distance away from the start point, but in the same direction, to place the first intermediate point.

    2. Click some distance away from the first intermediate point, but in a different direction in the same plane, to place a second intermediate point.

    3. Click some distance away from the second intermediate point, but in a different direction and in a different plane, to place the end point.

      The software automatically places the 3D skew and its associated skew components.

  • The two intermediate points and the end point collectively define the three skew components.
