Autodesk Inventor® 2016
Tube & Pipe Routed Systems

Master Inventor!

Leverage the Tube and Pipe module!

While the Tube and Pipe module is a powerful way to create pipe, tube, and hose assemblies, it’s a little too complex to learn on your own. That said, the Tube and Pipe Routed Systems course makes it simple. Within a short time you be able to create any run you want complete with custom fittings and custom components.

First you’ll learn how routed systems affect BOMs and how to assure your BOMs look the way you want them to. Keep in mind that this is an advanced course that assumes you know how to customize BOM tables. If you need to learn how to do this you should watch the 2D Drafting and Customization course as well as the Assemblies and Advanced Concepts course. The Tube and Pipe Routed Systems course shows you how to setup your routes so that the outcome is a structured BOM. It gives you control over what and where components are listed in the BOM.

You’ll also learn how to publish custom components like pipes, fittings, tubes, and hoses. Your custom components will be stored in your custom library in the Content Center. So not only will you learn to use all the components that come with Inventor, you’ll learn how to create your own.

If you’ve played around with the Tube and Pipe module you know it can be difficult to keep routes under control. That is they can unexpectedly move and reroute themselves. This is actually a procedural problem. The Tube and Pipe model is doing exactly what it’s supposed to do. What you need to do is take control of your routes, and this course shows you how it’s done. You will have full control over routes by the time you finish this course.
