Select the Flattening Scaling tab:
Specify whether or not to use a scale during the
Select With no scale, if you have
decided to work in true length.
Select With scale..., if you have
decided to work with fake lengths.
You can decide to use a scale when bundle segments reach a
For example, you can specify that a scaling option should be
automatically implemented as soon as a harness counts 10 bundle
segments or more.
Once this option is activated, the other options that were inactive
so far, become available:
- You can specify that when bundle segments reach a
specified length, say 100mm, they will automatically be
reduced by the specified percentage, say 30%. When doing so,
two options are available:
- The factor can be applied to the whole length of the
bundle segment or
- It can only be applied to the part that is longer than
the specified limited length.
- Otherwise, by selecting If the bundle segment length
is greater than, you can specify that all bundle
segments whose lengths are greater than the limited length
will be put in fake length; their lengths will be the limited

Note: It is recommended that you use
the Coarse mode if you specify Flattening Scaling
options: applied to roughly straightened bundle segments, it generates the
In Fine mode, the bundle segment
shape remains the same as in 3D and it may be incompatible with the
parameters defined in the Flattening Scaling options. Using the
Fine mode may result in an incorrect bend radius update for some bundle
