Adding a Slope

To add a slope to a pipe route:

  1. Open a routing assembly and click Piping > Edit Route tool_piping_edit_route.gif (Routing toolbar).
  2. Right-click the sketch entity at the location where you want to add the slope and select Add Slope add_slope_button.

    The Pipe Slope PropertyManager appears.

  3. Select the Gravity Plane.

    The pipe segment must be on that plane.

  4. Select a Start Point.

    The start point must be a fixed point that the pipe segment can use to rotate and create the slope.

  5. In the PropertyManager, enter the rotation angle of the Slope, expressed as a ratio.
  6. Click PM_OK.gif.

The slope is added to the pipe segment.

You can edit the slope by selecting the route segment and right-clicking Edit Slope edit_slope_button . To remove the slope, right-click the segment and select Remove Slope remove_slope_button. You can also annotate slopes in drawings and BOMs.
