How do you create a custom pipe routing library?

Hi,

 

I am making this thread in extension to my previous thread here.  I am trying to create a custom pipe routing library that will allow me to drag and drop my custom pipe routing components into a route and have the components auto-size to the route.

 

I am still having trouble with the pipe routing elbows, which also seems to be associated with my custom routing problem.  I created a custom elbow with two configurations, one for a .75 in pipe, and another for a 1 in pipe.  Then I added it to the pipe routing library through the routing component wizard.  I then created a custom route property page, using the standard pipe file as the pipe, and my custom elbow as the elbow. When I went to use this property upon starting a pipe route in an assembly I got the following error:

Following this error, I did some further research on creating my own template, but could not find a solution.  When creating a pipe route, elbows are not being automatically inserted at corners.  I also noticed that in the Route Properties window of the Routing Library Manager my PVC elbow is classified as a 0 angle, rather than a 90.  I am not sure if this is related to the overall issue nor how to manipulate this. Regardless, here is what my route property page looks like:

 

 

Any insight on how I can create my own routing library that can use my own elbows and components (and eventually my own pipe) would be greatly appreciated.
