“If you design a lot of tube and pipe runs, you have to get the Inventor Tube and Pipe add-in.” said David Melvin, PE, author of the course. “You’ll need to learn several fundamental concepts before you can use it, but it’s well worth your time. That’s why this course is so valuable. Once you’ve got the fundamentals under your belt, it shows you how to construct bullet proof runs that will automatically update to assembly changes.”
