Editor View - Displays the Pipe Layout editor view as shown above.

Table View - Displays the Pipe Layout table view as shown below.

Initial Z Rotation - This is the rotation around the Z axis that is applied to the starting point of the Pipe. This is used to orient the Pipe in a particular direction before sections are drawn.

Conveyor View - If this box is checked, the Pipe will be drawn as a simple conveyor. This does not change the functionality of the pipe. See the Fluid Conveyor object for conveyor functionality.

- Removes the selected sensor from the table, or if no sensor is selected, removes the last sensor in the table.

Section Name - The name of the pipe section. This is purely for the modeler's convenience and has no affect on the model.

Length - The length of the section

Z Rotation - The rotation around the Z Axis that is applied at the end of the section.

Y Rotation - The rotation around the Y Axis that is applied at the end of the section.

Join Diameter - Specifies the diameter of the joint.

Joint Length - Specifies the length of the joint.

Auto Size Joint - Automatically adjusts the joint size based on the diameter and rotation of the pipe sections.
