A flange is often used at the ends of a routing run to connect the pipe or tube to a fixed component, such as a pump or tank. Flanges can also be used to connect long straight sections of pipe.

Some sample flanges are supplied with the software. You can create your own flange parts by editing the sample part file or creating your own part file. See Routing File Locations and Settings Dialog Box for the location of sample parts and for recommendations on where to store new parts you create.


You can also use the Routing Component Wizard in the Routing Library Manager to prepare a part for use in Routing.
