Modeling a pipe line

Hi folks,


This maybe a dumb question but here it goes, I need to model and detail a 1700' pipe line with many bends and elevation changes along the way. I have not started yet but think it might be best to use a 3D sketch, now I have not used 3D sketch for anything except for doing the SW tutorial.


I think the best way to do this is sketch is the full 1700' of pipe run, and then somehow break it down to 40' sections that my customer has asked for. This pipe is some big stuff for me, 24" dia. and all bend radii is 15'.


They need this done so drawings can be made for each section so as the people that will be bending it will have something to go by.


Does my approach sound right? I'm open to any ideas.


Thank you in advance!
