  1. Click Insert Component on the vertical toolbar.

  2. Select the pipe, pipe end, component port, or nozzle on which to insert the default branch. If you select a pipe, the point at which you identify the pipe is used as the placement point.

  3. In the Type box on the ribbon, select <Default Branch>.

  4. In the Run box on the ribbon, define the pipe run for the branch by either selecting an existing run or by using the New Pipe Run dialog box to create a new pipe run.

    The software uses the branch table to place the correct default branch feature.

  5. If needed, change the position of the component using Flip, Reference Position, and Angle options on the ribbon.

  6. Click Finish.

When placing components on a pipe, the software will use the divisor point location as the placement point if the divisor point glyph is displayed when you select the pipe. This functionality allows you to place a component at the mid-point of a pipe for example. You can set the number of divisor points on the Tools > Options > SmartSketch3D tab.
