I don't use content center library to many issues I have my own library for this.
You can puplish it to tube and pipe I think. I don't have my drive with me I can upload it tonight or in morning.
In the past I have just used the steel ones that come with Inventor, then I just fudge the drawing parts list to show the correct material.
I have intended to make a stainless library, but have never found the time to do so.
Are there dimensional differences between the steel fittings and stainless ones?
Thanks for the info. I never knew what the "S" was for.
I have only ever used them for skids with small-diameter piping (less than 10"), so the wall thickness was never an issue. And I don't think the difference in material density between carbon steel and stainless steel (on the order of a few thousandths of a pound per cubic inch) is significant (until maybe the 100,000-lb range, and THAT would be a lot of piping).
I would just copy the nearest / closest CC library into your "My Library" and make/edit the changes is size and material there.
We do a lot with Nylon air-brake in the Pipe & Tube module, I just copied an existing flexible library and did my edits to get what I needed. Much easier than creating a library from scratch (unless you do it about once every 1-2 months).
