Can anyone help me? I am trying to add connecters to my flanged piping, 1/16" to each flanged piece to account for my gaskets. I am having trouble adding a line that small, someone told me to create a larger line and then dimension it down, but I am having trouble with this. does anyone know how to do this?

Here is a link to an Autodesk University Class by Autodesk's very own Joshua Benoist.  If you are unfamiliar with Autodesk University then I would highly recommend that you sign up for a FREE accound and browse their classes.  The class by Joshua is all about content builder and how to use it.  In the downloads section there is a 168 page word document that walks you through every single step of building content.  Inside that document you will find everything that you need to fix your problem.

Hope this helps and gets you on the right track.  P.S.  The help file and the user guide also contain excellent material for content builder.  In addition Mastering Autocad MEP 20xx is available on Amazon.com and PaulAubin.com and is also an excellent read.
