When Pipe Routing you may need to have an elbow that has a drain or weldolet on it.  This is actually easily accomplished.  Simply model the modified elbow and use the replace fitting command to swap it into the route.  Best results are likely achieved if you save a copy of your default elbow and modify it to suit and then swap in the copy.
