All the segments and bends of the selected invalid pipe piece display under Select Bend To Replace, the invalid ones are highlighted with a symbol next to them. Those are the ones that violated the minimum clamp length defined in the bend machine file inside the Master Catalog.
6. Under Select Bend To Replace, select the bend adjacent to the invalid segment to be replaced by a fitting corner type.
