From the Inventor Tube and Pipe Environment, you can export your pipe runs to Bending Machine Formats. The available export types are XYZ, YBC, and LRA.
To export Tube & Pipe runs in a bending machine-compatible file format, follow the steps below:
- Activate “Tube and Pipe Runs”
- Activate the specific pipe run (“Run02” is active in the image below)
- Right Click on the “Tube Segment” and select “Bending Machine Output…”
- Save the file, remember to choose the format required.
The animated GIF below shows how to do this in practice.
