Routing adding threaded nipples and other threaded fittings together

Question asked by Tom Durrance on Feb 13, 2020

I have been playing around with routing in solidworks training files, but one thing has stumped me. I am  looking at the orthogonal tubing assembly and following the tutorial is fine, I can add in a straight tube fitting and route the pipe between the components, but if I want to say add a nipple at the beginning instead of the straight fitting it just floats around and will not connect. I wanted to try adding in threaded fittings such as a nipple to a tee to nipple to a threaded valve etc, but I can seem to find any training material which covers this or anything on utube to help guide me.

Most of the work I'm involved in includes assembly's with lots of threaded fittings.
