    In previous releases of Inventor, you have been limited to 90 or 45 degree angles for rigid pipe routes.

    However, in the 2024 release you can see that within the rigid pipe styles, there is now an option for custom elbows.

    When drawing your route, you can select custom elbow in the properties panel.

    Then from here, you can create a custom angle within 5-degree increments. Inventor will then generate the appropriate pipe lengths and custom angled elbow component in the route.
