Steve,

I use the offset coordinate sytem datum point tool to enter the xyz numbers.

Start the tool select a coord sys point.

Click in the lower box to make your points.

Change the values.

Then I go to insert / advanced / pipe and follow the prompts.

Not sure if it is the best , but it works for me.

Let me know if you need anything further.

Later

Hi Steve,

are those xyz points the virtual corners (bends) or ragular points along the pipe?

They represent the intersection of two lines. I think there may be a better way to use XYZ data then INSERT, ADVANCE, PIPE. Possibly a family table. I don't have the piping extension.

Thanks!
