I need create routing segment, like below.
Note: I can't use any elbows - there should be a penetration.

You have hit on a scenario that penetrates cannot handle.
The basic problem is that every route segment must have a reference to at least 1 CPoint because it is the CPoint that determines the pipe diameter. In this case there is no CPoint.
my best suggestion would be to use an O-let at one end. You can modify the O-let definition such that the CPoint is inside the the penetrated pipe so that you get a proper length. You can then hide the O-let component and set it to ignore in BOM.
Using this at both ends will work well. This will not cut a hole in the penetrated pipe or shape the end of the penetrating pipe but it will get the pipe modelled.
You can use the custom pipe function to allow you to cut the end shape on the pipe if it is essential to have this detail.
Someone out there may have a better idea?
Hope this helps.
