how to view/dimension a pipe?


New member
I'm new in piping...

1- I have an assembly. I create a pipe with piping... but I see only the axis of the pipe. How can I see all the pipe?

2- How can I create the part "pipe_1" and the drawingrelated to my new pipe? I see the pipe asan assembly feature!

When you are in piping, you have to go into fabrication, highlight the pipe file and click on 'make'. Otherwise you will only get the centerline of the pipe.
