  1. Click Route Pipe on the vertical toolbar.

  2. Select the run starting point in an elevation view.

  6. Click OK to close the New Pipe Run dialog box.

  7. In the Specify Slope Direction dialog box, specify if you are routing from the high point or the low point of the pipe run.

  8. Click OK in the Specify Slope Direction dialog box.

  9. Select points to define the route of your pipe run.

    You can use PinPoint, Point Along, and the SmartSketch relationship indicators when defining your pipe run.

  10. Select the ending point of the pipe run. Right-click to end a pipe run.

  • You can unlock the slope on the ribbon to temporarily override the slope. For example, you will need to unlock the slope to model a vertical drop in the pipe run.

  • If the piping specification that you selected has service limits defined, you must define at least one temperature value and one pressure value for the pipe run. Do this by selecting Temperature and Pressure from the Category option.
