The scene geometry can be imported from any CAD system, as a VRML- or JT-file. Before creating a wire, the material parameters need to be defined manually or loaded from a database. There are three possibilities of defining a wire: Creating an initial cable instantly, using the Automatic Routing feature or providing a pre-deformed shape by inserting a curve.
The locations for fastening cable clips and clip connections need to be defined. After that the cable can be connected with any object and/or other cables.
The object motions can be imported from XMO or EngMo. They provide a basis for the analysis of the wire’s motions with respect to the critical measurements. An envelope of the motion can also be created.
