How do I create a piping libary part?

How can I create a piping library part. It is the creation of the CPoint and RPoint that gets me. When I drag and drop a 90 bend from the piping library, it is a sldprt file and it has 2 cpoints and 1 rpoint in it. How do I create a part file that has the required points in them.

As far as I can see, they are only avavilabe in an assembly. Lets start with something very, very basic. Draw a circle and extrude it to a solid. Let us call this masterfull piece of engineering a valve. Create a new sketch and place 2 Points at the centre faces of the valve ( these will be used for the CPoints and RPoint later on). Save the part. The next part is the problem. How do I place CPoints and RPoints on the points created on the previous sketch??

I know once the CPoints andRPoints are there, you do some design table stuff with Diameter@CPointn etc, but I cannot creat the CPoints in the first place.

Can someone show me how to do this? Any Help would be greatly appreciated.
