Reference Edges for Routing

When the reference pipe segment is not along the z-axis of the Global Csys, the left, right, top, and bottom edges are defined as shown in the following figure.

The plane ACBD that passes through the pipe segment AB and parallel to the y-z plane is the base for the left and the right edges of the pipe segment AB. The plane ABEF that passes through the pipe segment AB and perpendicular to the plane ACBD is the base for the top and bottom edges of the pipe segment AB.

When the reference pipe segment is not along the z-axis of the Global Csys, the left, right, top, and bottom edges are defined as shown in the following figure.

The plane ABCD that passes through the pipe segment AB and perpendicular to the x-y plane is the base for the left and the right edges of the pipe segment AB. The plane EFGH that passes through the pipe segment AB and perpendicular to the plane ACBD is the base for the top and bottom edges of the pipe segment AB.
