Is there's a way to model in autopipe a mechanical coupling long sleeve type (as image below)?
(Rigid and Flexible)
Please provide a details cut sheet, manufacture information, and other general characteristics about this object.
I want to be sure that it is just a typical sleeve compression fitting (ie. as the bolts are tighten it pushes against an elastomer ring that expands making the mechanical connection). The real holding power is friction preventing the pipe from moving axially out of the coupling.
