Automated tube and pipe design (enhanced)


Use a combination of automated tools and full-control design functions in Inventor Professional to:

  • Select a predefined tube and pipe style from the library or create a custom style.
  • Define routes interactively inside the model or use an existing 3D sketch.
  • Create flexible hose runs that automatically follow the shortest path possible.
  • Edit existing runs, no matter how they were generated.

You can also define requirements, such as maximum segment lengths or default bend radius, so tube and pipe runs always meet your company or industry standards, even across multiple projects.
