How are grooved couplings (victaulic style) handled in routing?

I am a seasoned SolidWorks designer and Admin but I am new to setting up routing, I am trying to set this up as I transition my company from AutoCAD to SolidWorks.  We use a mix of flanged and grooved components.  Flanges do not seem to be a problem with routing.  I am trying to figure out how to deal with grooved pipe ends, groove couplings, and grooved components in routing.


Part of our push to SolidWorks is the ability to detail sections of pipe that will require a machining operation such as grooving, coping, and threading.  This along with a detailed cutlist is what we are hoping to accomplish to give to our manufacturing department.


Can anyone help?  Point me at a thread, point me at a video, even post an explanation below.


Thank you so much and Merry Christmas,
