Assigning a Flexible Line Shape
As with all piping environment commands, these settings take effect beginning with the next routed pipeline segment until you change them. The default length for a new segment is the length the segment would be if you used Free Length.
Once you click type a value for a pipe segment length, the system constrains the flexible segment length at that value. Use the Modify Pipeline dialog box to reroute a fixed length segment as a free length (click Modify).
A dimension controls the fixed length. You can modify it as you would any other dimension. Because the pipeline controls the corresponding solid pipe feature, you must select the pipeline to modify a fixed length, not the solid (if there is one).
You cannot set fixed lengths for straight segments even if the straight segments are part of a segment that is routed mostly as flexible pipe.
