The routing of pipe, ducts, and other services in 3D through congested areas is difficult, even with the best available 3D CAD systems. This paper describes a new approach in which a real-time automatic 2D router is combined with a simple user interface to create a 3D sketching environment in which a designer can rapidly create optimal 3D routes for piping, ductwork, and cableways.
