Modelling a 3-way pipe joint in Solidworks

SOLIDWORKS’ modelling capability allows users to simply and easily model pipe joints. This is made possible using SOLIDWORKS surfacing techniques.

All users need to do to perform such a task is to use the extrude command, surface fill, surface loft feature in SOLIDWORKS and a sketch of the geometry of the pipe. Below are an example.

First begin by creating a part in SOLIDWORKS.

Next, we create a sketch on the top plane representing the axes for the pipes.
