Hi,

 

I am having the same issue with Sweep command.

I am in Weldments environment and Sweep command doesn't work.

 

I will try the Frame environment to create it..

Small update:

I have started doing my plumbing design using Frame environment and I have to say it is working very well.

Thank you @Howcad

The only downside in using frames frames is not being able to define different radii for bends, but you can in XPresRoute.

For flexibles in frames, I usually place a spline curve for the path - gives a much more realistic result.

Hi,
yes, I would have the XPresRoute license .... but without it I have to find a different method.

Hi @beachcomber

 

 

 

this IMHO isn't true.

 

You also can define every bend radius on every corner, as You like.
