Read how to maximize efficiency and produce high-quality products with short timelines by integrating ECAD and MCAD for wire harness design.
Reduce production time as NX readily creates information for harness manufacturing. Automatically create a flattened model of the wire harness that includes the electrical intelligence and details such as tie wraps, clips and grommets, and relative positions of connectors.
Manufacturers can use the flattened model as a reference for 3D jig design, or you can easily create accurate formboard drawings.
Leverage NX wire routing and harness design as it uses the connection and component information from the logical design schematic. You can quickly import netlists of wire and connection data from ECAD systems and use a wizard-style interface to create and modify connections.
Optimize routing between components in crowded assemblies using rules-based routing tools that automate the creation of wiring paths and connections from logical designs.
Built-in design rules check and enforce standard practices and ensure connectivity to reduce production costs and assembly defects. To quickly identify and correct violations, you can check rules during design, on demand or in batch processes.
With parametric wiring models, you can more easily manage design changes, analyze clearances and interferences, and accurately calculate wire lengths and bundle diameters.
