This article was originally released in the fall of 2013; however, I have received several emails since then about an issue users were having when validating their projects after implementing the changes in the article. The validation error would be under the heading “Unmatched model inline fittings” and would show every piece of pipe in the 3D model.
Did you know that when you purchase Inventor® HSM, Inventor Professional is now included? That’s a big deal since Inventor Professional includes Tube & Pipe, Cable & Wire Harness and of course Simulation or Inventor FEA. This is a very compelling reason to investigate the Inventor or SolidWorks HSM bundle.
