This Guide will hopefully tell you how to make tubing for your water-cooling setup in Sketchup

What you will need:
A PC or MAC That has Sketchup Installed (if not download and install from here http://sketchup.goog...m/download.html)
Measaments of the Tubing you will Be Using
A Basic knowledge of Sketchup

Here We Go

Step one: Draw the path with lines in which your tubing will be going

Step Two: Draw a circle at any any of the line the outside size of the tubing

Posted Image

Step Three: Offset the circle to the interia size, and delete the centre

Posted Image

Step Four: Select all of the lines which you drew where the tubing will be going

Posted Image

Step Five: Click the follow me tool, than click the cirlce which will be come the tubing

Step Six: Tubing Done, You may need to delete the line from the middle of the tube, change the color of the tube to clear or whatever colour of your tubing and delete the line next to the tube or sometimes it is still in the tube :)

I've never used sketchup. I'll have to give it a shot; I use Solidworks a lot. Shouldn't be too hard to use :lol:
