This task explains how to extract data: the geometrical and electrical bundles with all the devices that are associated to them, in order to duplicate the information they contain in the new document.

The 3D-Install Harness document is still open from the previous task as well as the new product document.
Make sure the source document has not been modified, otherwise you will be prompted to save it before extracting the data.

In the new product document opened in the previous task (with the harness flattening parameters):

  1. Click Extract .
    You are prompted to select electrical or geometrical bundles.

  2. Select the bundle segments you want to extract from the source document (the 3D-Install Harness document), whether in the geometry area or in the specification tree.
    When the extraction is performed the source document automatically closes.

  3. Save your data.
