Tube and Pipe back to back butt welded elbows

I am trying to do a tube and pipe run as per a customers supplied drawings. They are calling for a 90 deg elbow welded directly to another one, which is possible. When I try to do this in tube and pipe I get errors because of my minimum segment length. Does anybody know of a method I can accomplish this without manually inserting the elbows as I have done. I am required to generate an iso drawing from these afterwards and fear that I will loose my centre lines in the dwg.

I've attached an image showing what I need.

As far as I know, you're hitting one of the limitations of auto-routed segments / tube & pipe. I've done quite a bit of piping in IV, and there's no workaround for this that I know of. Sorry :smileysad:
