Route Components: Fittings and Connectors

Fittings and connectors include flanges, elbows, tees, valves, wiring harnesses and wiring clips. Fittings and connectors are typically used to begin and end routes, and to guide and control the route path.

Most fittings and connectors must have at least one connection point (CPoint), which indicates where a routing segment (pipe, tube, or wire) begins or ends.

You can specify the CPoint parameters in a design table to control the diameter and type of routing segment (pipe, tube, or wire) that can be attached to the fitting or connector.

The software makes extensive use of design tables to create and modify the configurations of route components. The configurations are distinguished by different dimensions and properties.

Fittings and connectors are available in the Design Library, or can be custom created.

After a route is created, all fittings and connectors are listed in the Components folder of the assembly’s FeatureManager design tree.
