SOLIDWORKS Routing is a powerful add-in included with SOLIDWORKS Premium. Routing has a wealth of useful tools to improve your efficiency when designing routes that contain electrical components, tubes ( flexible hoses, straight sections with elbows, or form bends), and pipes (straight sections with elbows or form bends). I love how the software starts a route for me the moment that I drop a fitting or connector into an assembly.
While this automation can help to increase design efficiency, you still need to pay attention to your workflow to make sure that the route is oriented correctly. You may have been frustrated by this in the past if you have ever needed to orient a flange on the end of a pipe to match a particular orientation. Typically, the two-hole flange orientation (two holes are horizontal at the top) is most common, but there are times that the one-hole orientation (only one hole at the top) may be required.
