Is there anyway to simplify the input of a ring header type of pipe arrangement? I've have to model a 360 degree ring header with a large number of small branches coming off at different points around the curve.

Right now, the only option I see is a very brute force approach of figuring out the x and z delta values for each segment and building the ring from a bunch of short bends, adding my branches and supports in between the bend segments.

Is there an easier way or am I just in for a long day of pain? confused confused confused
