  • When you move a straight feature, such as a pipe, the default working plane is the plane of one of the adjacent turns. The software selects the turn first by the plane that includes branches, and then by the plane of larger nominal diameter.

  • You can select one of the orientation handles that appear at the ends of the straight feature as your move from point. These orientation handles allow you to move the pipe in relation to the edge of the pipe instead of the pipe centerline.

  • For example, you can use the orientation handles to align the bottom of pipe with the top of a beam. The display of the orientation handles is controlled by the Key point option on the Tools > Options > SmartSketch3D tab. Unless you need them, we recommend that you keep the orientation handles turned off as they can make selecting the end feature of a pipe challenging.

  • For more information on how the software performs the move operation, refer Appendix: Moving at Boundary Connections.
