Cable and Harness Length Control

Hi!

 

I'm creating a wire assembly and i already have in me a length for my wire.

 

How can I apply this in my assembly for Inventor? It seems only the diameter can be specified but not the length.

 

Please help.

Hello,

 

you have to placed your 2 points you used to create your wire at the distance you need... Or if the wire is not a "right" line but a spline (As for many wiring) and it's to hard to adjust the lenght by the routing you could force the length in the BOM of your part.

 

Regards,

John.

I'm talking about the Cable and Harness Environment in Inventor Pro.

 

i wanna know if Inventor has this function wherein I could enter or adjust the desired length of wire in my Harness Assembly?
