Would Like a Self Intersecting Pipe Run on Purpose

How is it done? I appreciate the feedback

 

For reference, this is an image of what I'm working to build. The self intersecting run is the bottom square, but ideally I'd just build the whole thing with a tube all the while it intersects at multiple points.

Are you using Frame Generator?

Looks pretty easy to me?

Wasn't using a frame generator. hmmm forgot about that one.

:smileyindifferent:

 

Just for reference, however - is it possible to do a self intersecting pipe run?

Frame Generator will create all of the members even if they intersect.

I think I would then trim them up though.
